The former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki’s application for the adjournment of the ongoing trial of a former National Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Olisa Metuh, has been dismissed by Justice Okon Abang

Dasuki filed the application for adjournment saying that it would enable him to get documents to refresh his memory.

However, Justice Abang rejected the application on the ground that Dasuki is not a party before and the application, hence, lacks merit.
