Justice Yusuf on Thursday, January 21 adjourned Dasuki’s trial, with respect to the charges of alleged diversion of about N32bn, part of fund meant for procurement of arms, till Friday, January 22, 2016.

The Court made the adjournment known at the instance of the defence lawyers, Mr. Joseph Daudu (SAN) and Mr. Ahmed Raji (SAN), who had written to the court that they would be in Kogi State for an election petition case today.

The prosecuting counsel for the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) Mr. Rotimi Jacobs (SAN), and other defence counsel in the case, however did not oppose the request by Dasuki’s lawyer.
