Dasuki is standing trial for alleged diversion of $2.1billion arms procurement fund.

The presiding judge, Justice Baba Yusuf, adjourned the case after hearing that Dasuki’s lawyers, Mr. Joseph Daudu (SAN) and Mr. Ahmed Raji (SAN) would not be in court on Thursday.

The duo had written to the court that they would be in Kogi State for an election petition case on Thursday.

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

The judge later fixed 11:00am on Friday for resumption of hearing in the case.
