Breaking: Court orders Metuh to face trial or be arrested


Mr. Olisah Metuh, former PDP’s spokesman has been ordered to appear at the Federal High Court, Abuja for his trial on Feb. 5 or risk arrest.

Justice Okon Abang gave the order on Thursday, when he delivered ruling in an application filed by Metuh, seeking an adjournment to his trial on health grounds.

The judge said the letter which Metuh wanted the court to rely on to grant the adjournment was not a proper document before the court.

“I agree with the prosecution that the purported letter written by Dr O.C. Ekweogwu, who is unknown to the court, is trash and a useless paper meant for the dustbin, which was dumped on the court by the defence.

“The said letter was fraudulently smuggled into the records of the court by a person unknown to the court with the intent to stall proceedings.”

The judge said there was a laid down procedure for filing a medical report in court.
