The Supreme Court in Thursday adjourned the hearing on the appeal filed by a former National Security Adviser (NSA) Colonel Sambo Dasuki (retd) to January 25, 2018.
Dasuki is challenging the Federal Government over his continued detention in spite of the fact that he has been granted bail by three different courts.
The ECOWAS court had also in October 2016, ordered for his immediately release from detention, an order the Nigerian government has so far refused to comply with.
The former NSA who served under former President Goodluck Jonathan was dragged before the Federal Capital Territory High by the Federal government on two separate charges of alleged illegal diversion of about $2.1billion meant for arms purchase.
He is also being tried before the Federal High Court in Abuja on charges bordering on money laundering and alleged illegal possession of fire arms.
