Buhari Behind My Ordeal… Dasuki Tells Court

In a further and better affidavit filed in support of his application at the court, the Ex-NSA claimed that the President betrayed the emotion during the Presidential Media Chat when he openly told Nigerians that he (Dasuki) and Nnamdi Kanu could not be allowed on bail because they would jump bail. Dasuki claimed he had been held incommunicado since his re-arrest. He therefore asked Justice Peter Affen to prohibit his further trial until the federal government purged itself of the contempt of court which prevented him from filing effective defence because of his continued detention by DSS without having access to his lawyers.
