Chris Steven, Abuja

Justice Ademola Adeniyi of the Federal High Court sitting in Abuja on Friday ordered the Department of State Services (DSS) to allow  former National Security Adviser, retired Colonel Sambo Dasuki, to travel out of the country for medical treatment.

“Only a fit person can stand for trial and investigation,” Justice Adeniyi said

In his ruling, the Judge queried, “What is wrong in the defendant travelling and coming back to face trial?

He consequently ordered that his travel documents be released by the DSS forthwith, insisting “My own orders will not be flouted.”

The Justice  also told M.S. Labaran, counsel to the DSS, to tell his client to immediately comply with the November 3 order of the court, saying “Court order must be obeyed.

The former NSA, Dasuki had approached the court to plead for the enforcement of its earlier order of November 3 that he could travel for three weeks to seek medical assistance for his ailment.
