Adeniyi Ademola (pictured right) justice of the federal high court, whom the Department of State Services (DSS) accused of corruption, has withdrawn from the trial of Sambo Dasuki, former national security adviser (NSA).

Ademola announced his decision to withdraw from the trial before the court today.

He cited allegations of corruption levelled against him by the DSS, which is the prosecution in the case, as the reason for his action.

The DSS raided Ademola’s house, and arrested him on October 7.

The secret police claimed it found huge sums of money — foreign currencies — in his possession.

In response to the allegations, the judge wrote to the chief justice of Nigeria, claiming he was being harassed and intimidated by the DSS for granting bail to Dasuki and Nnamdi Kanu, director of Radio Biafra.
