Court Rejects Metuh's Bid To Stop Trial by ionsman: 11:48am On Mar 09, 2016
A Federal High Court sitting in Abuja, on Wednesday, ruled that the National Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Olisa Metuh has a case to answer in the criminal charges filed against him by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

Justice Okon Abang, who gave the ruling, however, held that it did not imply that Metuh had been pronounced guilty, but that he would have to make his defence.

The judge stated that the opposition party’s spokesman needed to offer an explanation to the evidence brought before the court.

He explained that Metuh needed to offer explanations on how he received and disbursed the money given to him by the office of the former National Security Adviser (NSA).

Abang dismissed Metuh’s application for lacking in merit.

The PDP spokesman is facing a seven-count of charge of criminal breach of trust and money laundering to the tune of N400m.

However, Metuh maintains that he is innocent of the charges, and that he only received the sum of N400m from the office of the former NSA to carry out media campaigns for former President Goodluck Jonathan.

Now that the thearitics and antics are over can someone tell Metuh to face his trial squarely and prepare himself for any possible outcome.

When he was given a window to return his loot and get soft landing like Alj Jafar, sheared arrogance and vain blabbing won't allow him.
Anyway to whom the gods want to destroy they will first make crazy.

Office of the NSA is an arm of PDP & it is cool that campaign funds should emanate from there

He feels invoking Hero's name will somehow grant him a sort of favour or immunity ba ? Issokay..

He should not worry, since it's being alleged that the IB has negotiated a soft landing for mama P & himself, it is the likes of Nurse that will be used as example! Yeyenatu.

This Metuh is trying to be stubborn.

400 Million Naira for what Media work? this is simple, Metuh returns the Money and serve some jail time(10 Years at least) or don't return the money and goes away for 30 Years at least.

When he comes out in 30 Years, whatever of the money left will be used to buy pampers for himself for his old age.

This Judge got this judgement right.

The judge just said:
'you're guilty until you can disprove the evidence'.
Good luck with that Metuh, because Goodluck will deny you.

Long years of judicial raping and subversion of Justice have rubbished the fight against corruption in this country. Imagine a common criminal applying to stop proceeding in a criminal case brought against him.

Thank God for PMB. This is the only reason I supported him and he is delivering already.
