Armsgate: My Lawyer Needs More Time – Metuh Begs Court by DONSMITH123(m): 1:26pm On Apr 11, 2016
The embattled spokesman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Chief Olisa Metuh, on Monday urged the Federal High Court sitting in Abuja to allow his counsel more time to prepare to defend his company, Destra Investment Limited.
Counsel to Metuh’s company, who is standing trial alongside the former as the second defendant in the ongoing prosecution, Toochukwu Onwuibufo made an oral application, seeking for more time and facilities to enable him prepare for defence.

Onwuibufo sought for time and documents of court proceedings to enable him prepare, adding that he was only brought into the matter last week.

Metuh, alongside his company, Destra Investment Limited are standing trial on a 7 count charge bordering on money laundering to the tune of N400m, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, alleged he collected from the former National Security Adviser, NSA, Col. Dasuki Sambo.

Quoting section 36(6) of the constitution, Onwuibufo said, “My lord, we are incapacitated to continue with this trial unless we are given facilities and time to prepare for trial.”

The prosecution led by Sylvanus Tahir in his argument said that the court should dismiss the application.

Counsel to Metuh, Emeka Etiaba, however, urged the court to grant the appeal of the counsel to the second defendant, adding that the embattled PDP spokesman is prepared “with his witnesses standing outside the court to open his defence but that doesn’t mean the second defendant is not entitled to fair hearing.”

Matter has been stood down for 15 minutes.

More details to come…

Nurse Metuh was shouting, court ooo, Court!

In court now, he nor fit talk again!! Crazy Mofo that he is!

seeking for more time and facilities to enable him prepare for defence.

No matter how much time Nurse's defence team gets or how long he stalls this trial! There is no way in this world that anyone can "positively" spin "I got money & people died for it"

They should introduce plea bargaining in Naija - Plead guilty, hand back the loot and get a suspended sentence.

Its only the lawyers enjoying these debacles....

If there is anything I don't like about our judiciary, it is the slow pace of criminal justice dispensation .


Because how do you explain how people with heavy criminal allegations have been able to play around cases by employing some dodgy tactics through their defense team in securing freedom for their client who ought to be in incarceration for a very longtime.


Anyway, Justice should be allowed to prevail in the end.

yes! But will that make him to escape justice? i think its high time stiffer penalties like death by firing squad be introduce into our system. Politicians are takin us for granted. Metuh should continue playing his game. Only one day for the owner.

Metuh must be a clown

This is delay tactics . He should enter for plead bargain and return his share if he is afraid of opening his defense.

Sometimes , Our high ranking politicians sounds so unintelligent when faced with the results of their atrocities .
How could you plead for more time when you got all the time to enter your defence and round off the trial

without any intention to spite u, u r more of your description on Metuh.
Section 36 of the constitution that deals with the fundamental human rights of an accused person avail him with right to extension of time to prepare well and get facilities to defend himself. If this right is denied, an accused can appeal against it by showing miscarriage of justice occasioned by it's denial. Metuh's lawyer knows this that is why the change of counsel midway to delay it, looking for excuse or ground of appeal.
Sorry if u feel insulted but I am telling u from the Bar, just allow Metuh to exercise his right as enshrined in our constitution. That is the beauty of democracy.
