The Former Publicity Secretary of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Olisa Metuh will resume his court trial on Tuesday dated, 20th June, 2017 which is tomorrow, before a Federal High Court in Abuja after being suspended for about six months.
Justice Okon Abang on Monday fixed Tuesday for the continuation of the trial after dismissing Metuh’s application for stay of proceedings in obedience to June 9, 2017, ruling of the Supreme Court.
The judge, also in a separate ruling, dismissed another application seeking the release of the Metuh’s passport which is in the court’s custody.
The trial had been put on hold due to interlocutory applications by the defense since December 16, 2016, when Metuh called his sixth witness.
But ordering the resumption of trial on Tuesday, Justice Abang ruled, The coast is now clear for the resumption of the trial that was suspended to abide the outcome of the application dated March 17, 2017. The application has been dismissed.
In the light of this, the matter is adjourned until 1 pm on June 20, 2017, for further hearing of the first defendant’s case.
Metuh along with his Investment Companies will be prosecuted before Justice Okon Abang at the Federal High Court, Abuja on seven counts of fraud and money embezzlement charges.
