A Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), Mr. Ahmed Raji, and counsel to the detained former National Security Adviser (NSA), Colonel Mohammed Sambo Dasuki (rtd), has taken the federal government to task on the purported offer granted Dasuki to allow him travel to Sokoto to attend the burial of his father, the 18th Sultan of Sokoto Alhaji Ibrahim Dasuki, who was buried on Tuesday.
The counsel who spoke with the judiciary reporters at the FCT High Court in Abuja, said the purported offer was doubtful because none of his lawyers was contacted on the issue.
He said: “As his counsel, we are not aware of that offer. Our client has not told us anything of that nature. We would have expected that if such gesture was going to be made to him, we as his counsel should have been involved so that we can advise him properly. As I am speaking to you, I am hearing of this for the first time.”
