The Federal High Court in Abuja was on Wednesday told that the weapons found in the Asokoro residence of the former National Security Adviser, (NSA) Colonel Muhammadu Sambo Dasuki (retired), barely 48 hours after he left office in 2015 belonged to the Office of the National Security Adviser (ONSA).

The weapons were said to be for the use of the security detail attached to him as the National Security Adviser (NSA) for protection purposes.

These were contained in Dasuki’s statement made to the operatives of the Department of State Security Service (DSS) tendered and admitted as exhibit by Justice Adeniyi Ademola in the ongoing trial of Dasuki on charges of unlawful possession of arms.

A prosecution witness in the trial of Dasuki, Mr. Samuel Ogbu, who is an operative of DSS indicated this when he read in the open court the statement made by Dasuki during his interrogation by DSS before he was charged to court.
