An Abuja Federal High Court on Monday adjourned the case of retired Col. Sambo Dasuki, till November 23 to enable the new justice minister, Abubakar Malami study the case.
Justice Adeniyi Ademola adjourned the case based on an oral application from the Solicitor-General of the Federation, Taiwo Abidogun that the justice minister had just been sworn-in and needed time to be briefed and study the case.
Ademola held that the adjournment would enable the Attorney General of the Federation appear and explain the siege on Dasuki’s Abuja residence.
Abidogun who appeared for the first time on the case said ” the minister had just been sworn in and would needed time to study the case and be briefed”
The solicitor-general also informed the court that the minister had yet to assume office.
He said that the minister would assume office on Wednesday, November 18 and would be briefed about Dasuki’s case.
He, therefore, urged the court to allow them to appear on Monday.
Dasuki’s Counsel, Joseph Daudu did not oppose the application.
