N400m Fraud: Court Adjourns Metuh’s Case until Oct 23


The Federal High Court, Abuja, on Tuesday adjourned the trial of Chief Olisa Metuh, former National Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), until October 23, 2017 for continuation of trial.

The adjournment is hinged on the commencement of annual vacation by the court slated for July 10.

At the resumed hearing, Mr Sam-Ben Nwosu, a defence witness, told the court that he was aware of the N400 million payment made to Metuh by the former National Security Adviser (NSA), retired Col. Sambo Dasuki.

“I know about the N400 million payment because I remember that sometime in October 2014, Metuh said that we were going to make a presentation to the then President, Goodluck Jonathan.

“The presentation was on issues bordering on perception of activities of the government,’’ he said.

Nwosu, however, could not complete his testimony as the Judge, Justice Okon Abang, said that the court needed to adjourn to enable the court registrar sort out files for the next day’s proceedings.

Abang, therefore, adjourned continuation of trial until October 23, 2017.
