Justice Hussein Baba-Yusuf adjourned the case after taking arguments for and against the bail application by parties in the suit.
Counsel to the former NSA, Mr Ahmed Raji, asked the court to adopt earlier bail conditions given to Mr Dasuki by the Federal High Court, as the issues were the same.
Colonel Dasuki was arraigned along with the immediate past Minister of State for Finance, Mr Bashir Yuguda, a former Governor of Sokoto State, Mr Attahiru Bafarawa and his son Sagir Attahiru, the Director of Finance in the office of the National Security Adviser Mr Shuaibu Salisu and two others.
Rejecting the application, counsel to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Mr Rotimi Jacobs, asked the court to decline bails.
“The case before the Federal High Court is a secondary offense which emanated as a result of the case before the present court and as such, the bail terms cannot apply,” he said.
Mr Jacobs also told the court that there were concerns that the accused persons would jump bail or even obstruct ongoing investigations and asset tracing.
He said that witnesses and evidence could be jeopardised if the accused persons were allowed to go on bail.
Having listened to all the parties in the suit, the trial judge adjourned the case till Thursday for ruling on the bail and commencement of trial.
