Former National Security Adviser (NSA) Sambo Dasuki, has said to a federal high court in Abuja, that he was being punished by some persons at the highest level of power in the country for the perceived offences he committed some years ago while in the military.
Dasuki who did not name any particular person said that the punishment being meted on him was unfortunate because it is borne out of mere vendetta.
In his submissions while reacting to the Federal Government’s request for his secret trial Joseph Daudu SAN, counsel to Dasuki told the court that he has rested his case in God for the ultimate judgment.
“It is crystal clear that the defendant (Dasuki) is being punished by the powers that be for the offences committed long before, we leave them to the Almighty god for his ultimate judgment”, he had submitted.
Dasuki had been arraigned before three different high courts for various sums of money disbursed from his office, and was granted bail but was rearrested in December last year by the Federal Government and has since been held incommunicado.
