Embattled Former PDP Spokesperson, Olise Metuh Carried To FHC Via Ambulance & Stretchers

Embattled former Peoples Democratic Party, PDP chieftain, Olise Metuh being arraigned for another counts of fraud today by the Economic and Financial Crime Commission, EFCC was carried to court in an ambulance and he appeared inside the court on a stretcher.

It would be recalled that a Federal High court presided over by Justice Okon Abang had denied a request by Metuh's lawyer for a long adjournment owing to his client's health condition.

He had told the court that his client was at the Nnamdi Azikiwe specialist hospital for treatment on spinal cord complications. But Okon Abang refused the application for a long adjournment and threatened to allow the application made by the prosecution for the revocation of Metuh’s bail if Metuh was not in court on Monday.

However, on seeing the spokesperson in court on a stretcher on Monday morning, the judge adjourned the matter till March 15. 

In Okon Abang's words;

“I have seen the condition that the first defendant is. Seeing the condition, I am inclined to adjourn this matter to allow the first defendant attend his trial” . the judge said.
