Dasuki pleads loss of memory at Metuh’s trial


Former National Security Adviser, NSA, Col Sambo Dasuki (retd), has appeared in the ongoing trial of former spokesman of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, Olisa Metuh before a Federal High Court in Abuja.

Dasuki’s counsel, Ahmed Raji (SAN), however said the former NSA cannot testify due to loss of memory following his two years of incarceration.

He said the evidence to be given, is only a small aspect of his tenure as NSA, adding that he does not have “access to relevant files, records and documents required to refresh his memory of any decisions or actions he took or authorised in the course of his duties.”


Raji asked Justice Okon Abang to “tarry a while” in proceeding in the matter pending the determination of the appeal before the Court of Appeal in Abuja.

Metuh’s counsel, Emeka Etiaba (SAN) agreed with Raji that the former NSA need additional time to access his documents to be able to testify in all the courts he is facing charges.
