A Federal High Court in Abuja on Friday summoned the newly appointed Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami (SAN), over the continued occupation of the Abuja home of Col. Sambo Dasuki (rtd), by operatives.
Justice Adeniyi Ademola before whom the Federal Government is prosecuting Dasuki for money laundering and illegal arms possession charges, directed the AGF or his representative to appear in court on Monday.
The judge wants the AGF to explain why the ex-NSA was still at home despite an order of the court on November 3, permitting him to embark on a three-week medical trip to the United Kingdom.
The judge had fixed Friday for the hearing of an application by Dasuki asking the court to order the operatives of the DSS to vacate his residence at 13 John Kadiya Street, Asokoro District, Abuja.
The application which was filed on November 9, 2015 also sought an order of the court extending the period of his trip abroad to make up for the delay already caused by the DDS siege on his home.
Dasuki was not present in court during the Friday’s proceedings.
But the judge while adjourning the matter on Friday said he needed to hear from the AGF as to why Dasuki had not been allowed to embark on his medical trip despite the order granted him on November 3.
