Speaking through his counsel, Joseph Daudu (SAN), in an affidavit filed before the court, Dasuki claimed that President Buhari unjustly instigated his arrest and detention by the Department of the State Security (DSS) after he fulfilled his last bail condition at the Kuje prisons on December 29, 2015.

The ex-NSA, in a further affidavit filed in support of his application, claimed that the president betrayed his emotion during the Presidential Media Chat when he openly told Nigerians that he (Dasuki) and Nnamdi Kanu would not be allowed on bail because they would jump bail.

He therefore called on the trial judge, Justice Peter Affen to stop further trial in the court until the federal government allows him to prepare adequately for his defence of the various criminal charges against him.

Dasuki is facing a 22-count charge of diversion of funds for arms before an FCT High Court alongside many others. The case was adjourned to March 4 for hearing.
