For the second time, the Federal Government applied to the Federal High Court in Abuja for protection of witnesses that will testify against the former National Security Adviser, Col. Sambo Dasuki, in the charges of unlawful possession of fire-arms and money laundering brought against him.The fresh application to that effect was brought to court by Chief Oladipo Okpeseyi, SAN, recently engaged by Federal Government to lead the prosecution.
The motion dated January 23 and filed January 24, is insisting that the witnesses must be given protection by the court by not allowing their names and addresses to be made public in the course of the trial.
But in a strong opposition to the fresh request, Dasuki asked the court to dismiss the government motion on the ground that it lacks merit and constituted a gross abuse of court process.
The Ex-NSA in a counter-affidavit filed by his lead counsel, Mr. Ahmed Raji, argued that there was no justification for the Federal Government to have brought the motion for secret trial for the second time having lost in the first motion.


The defendant insisted that FG had on its own volition placed the charges against him in the internet where the names, addresses and positions of the witnesses were conspicuously put at the disposal of the general public.
Besides, Dasuki maintained that when the first application argued by the then Director of Public Prosecution of the Federation (DPPF), Mr. Mohamed Diri, Justice Adeniyi Ademola of the same court in a landmark ruling dismissed the request on the ground that the witnesses are already known by the public having given their names through the internet.
He further said bringing the same motion to the same court constituted a gross abuse of court process and that what the prosecution ought to do if not satisfied with the decision of Justice Ademola, was to have gone to court of Appeal to ventilate its anger.
Dasuki, who attached a copy of the earlier court ruling on the application urged the trial judge, Justice Ahmed Ramat Mohammed not to allow the fresh motion for secret trial to be entertained because it would violate his right to fair trial and will run contrary to the principle of the rule of law and natural justice.
