Indications have emerged that the embattled ex-National Security Adviser, NSA, Sambo Dasuki, must have been battling with memory loss.

ROYAL NEWS reports that Dasuki appeared before a Federal High Court in Abuja, on Wednesday in the ongoing trial of former spokesman of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, Olisa Metuh.

Dasuki’s counsel, Ahmed Raji (SAN), however said the former NSA cannot testify due to loss of memory following his two years of incarceration.

He said the evidence to be given, is only a small aspect of his tenure as NSA, adding that he does not have “access to relevant files, records and documents required to refresh his memory of any decisions or actions he took or authorised in the course of his duties.”

Raji also asked Justice Okon Abang to “tarry a while” in proceeding in the matter pending the determination of the appeal before the Court of Appeal in Abuja.

Metuh’s counsel, Emeka Etiaba (SAN) agreed with Raji that the former NSA need additional time to access his documents to be able to testify in all the courts he is facing charges.
