Colonel Sambo Dasuki, former national security adviser, has told the court that God will judge those who are prosecuting him for his old grievances, Vanguard reports.
He added that he is being punished by some people at the highest level of power in Nigeria for perceived grievances held against him while in active army service many years ago.
While he did not name any specific person, former NSA said that the punishment being prepared for him was unfortunate having been borne out of mere vendetta.
Dasuki, speaking through his counsel Joseph Daudu, SAN, told the court that he has left his case for God for the ultimate judgment.
“It is crystal clear that the defendant (Dasuki) is being punished by the powers that be for the perceived offences committed long before. We leave them to the Almighty God for his ultimate judgment”.
Ex NSA had been arraigned before three different high courts for different accusations and was given bail but was rearrested in December last year by the Federal government and has since been held out of touch.
The Nigerian authorities at resumed trial on June 23 had approached the court, asking for secret trial of Dasuki who is facing charges of illegal possession of firearms, money laundering and breach of trust.
