Olisa Metuh, former spokesperson of the Peoples Democratic Party currently undergoing trial for corruption charges arrived the Federal High Court, Abuja in an ambulance and consequently a stretcher as he was carried into the court room.
Justice Okon Abang, presiding judge in the Metuh case had thrown out an appeal made by Onyeachi Ikpeazu, one of Metuh’s lawyers for a long adjournment owing to the fact that his client needed urgent medical attention and was at the time receiving it at Nnamdi Azikiwe specialist hospital.
Abang refusing the application warned that Metuh’s bail would be revoked if he did not appear in court on the scheduled date.
On seeing Metuh in a stretcher on Monday and having despite his condition complied to his ruling, Abang adjourned the case to March 15, in a bid to give the defendant time to recuperate.
“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”.
