Hope that the former National Security Adviser (NSA), Colonel Sambo Dasuki (Rtd), will be released from detention rises as the Appeal Court in Abuja, on Friday vacated stringent bail conditions earlier granted to him.
The court unanimously consented to Dasuki’s request for a variation in the terms attached to the bail earlier granted him.
The three-man panel of the court expunged the requirement that Dasuki produced a Level 16 civil servant who must own a property worth N100 million within the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).
According to Justice Stephen Adah, in the lead judgment, it was wrong for courts to ask a civil servants to stand as surety when bail was granted.
