Court Okays Use Of Shielded Witnesses In Dasuki’s Trial

.
A Federal High Court has granted leave to the Federal Government to shield its witnesses in the trial of the former National Security Adviser, Colonel Sambo Dasuki (retd) for the possession of firearms and money laundering.

Justice Ahmed Mohammed in his ruling said the witnesses will, however, not be shielded to the lawyers in the case and the defendant.


In giving the ruling, Justice Mohammed said the application before his court is different from the application which was dismissed when the case was before Justice Adeniyi Ademola on April 8, 2016.

According to him, in that suit, the prosecution did not ask for the witnesses to be shielded and in the current case, the defence did not show how shielding the witnesses will be injurious to the defendant. “As such, the prayer for the witnesses to be shielded from the public is in order and it is hereby granted,” he said.
