A Federal Capital Territory High Court on Friday granted bail to former National Security Adviser, NSA, Sambo Dasuki, and four others standing trial for alleged money laundering and criminal breach of trust.
Mr. Dasuki and his accomplices were arraigned by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, on a 19-count charge.
His co-accused are a former director of finance at the office of the NSA, Shuaibu Salisu, a former Group General Manager of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, Aminu Baba Kusa and two firms, Acacia Holdings Limited and Reliance Reference Hospital.
Justice Husseini Baba Yusuf while granting Mr. Dasuki and the other accused persons bail in the sum of N250 Million, said they must also produce a surety each, who must be a serving or retired civil servant not lower than the rank of a director.
The judge further said the surety must also show possession of a property within the FCT worth the same amount.
All the accused were also ordered to deposit copies of their international passports with the court registrar and they must notify the court of any travel arrangement outside the jurisdiction of the court.
