ECOWAS Court Rules Against Dasuki’s Enforcement Application

The ECOWAS Court of Justice has dismissed a case brought by former National Security Adviser, Retired Col. Mohammed Sambo Dasuki, seeking to enforce a 2016 judgment that declared his detention unlawful.

The court ruled that it lacked jurisdiction to adjudicate the application, which aimed to compel Nigeria to comply with the previous ruling.

Dasuki had argued that his arrest and detention violated his rights under international conventions, and sought the return of his seized properties and payment of damages.

However, Nigeria contended that the properties in question were tied to ongoing criminal proceedings and that it had already fulfilled its obligations under the ECOWAS judgment.

The court’s decision underscores the complexities of jurisdictional authority in international legal matters and highlights the ongoing legal battles surrounding Dasuki’s case.
The ruling has significant implications for the enforcement of international court decisions within member states.
