After Arrest, Justice Ademola Withdraws From Dasuki Case
The judiciary is now intimidated by the FG. It is now as worst as that. The judge in charge of the Dasuki case, Justice Adeniyi Ademola has withdrawn from the trial of former national security adviser (NSA), Sambo Dasuki. Ademola, justice of the federal high court, whom the Department of State Services (DSS) accused of corruption, has announced his decision to withdraw from the trial before the court today being Tuesday 18th October 2016.
According to reports on The Cable, Ademola cited allegations of corruption levelled against him by the DSS, which is the prosecution in the case, as the reason for his action. The DSS raided Ademola’s house, and arrested him on October 7.
The secret police claimed it found huge sums of money — foreign currencies — in his possession. In response to the allegations, the judge wrote to the chief justice of Nigeria, claiming he was being harassed and intimidated by the DSS for granting bail to Dasuki and Nnamdi Kanu, director of Radio Biafra.
