L-R Former,National Security Adviser to president,Col. Sambo Dasuki, his Counsel

By Yemi Adebowale

The hearing of a suit filed by the former National Security Adviser, Colonel Sambo Dasuki, seeking an enforcement of an order by a Federal High Court granting him permission to travel overseas for medical treatment, has been stalled.
Hearing stalled on Monday following the absence of the Attorney General of the federation.

At the resumed hearing of the suit, the Solicitor General of the Federation, Mr Taiwo Abidogun, told the court that the Attorney General of the Federation needed time to study the case file, having just being sworn in as the Attorney General and Minister of Justice.

The application for adjournment by the Solicitor General was, however, not opposed by the lawyer to Colonel Dasuki.

Justice Adeniyi Ademola subsequently adjourned the suit to 23 November for hearing.
