Olisa Metuh Fails to Stop Trial


The former Spokesman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Olisa Metuh has lost his bid to stop his trial in court.

Metuh is currently undergoing trial on criminal charges before the High Court of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) in Maitama, Abuja.

The presiding Judge, Justice Ishaq Bello on Thursday, turned down a no-case application made by the former spokesman in his trial for alleged destruction of evidence while he was being investigated by the Economic and Finance Crimes Commission (EFCC).

According to Justice Bello, “the view of this court is that the application for a no-case submission is lacking in merit. It is hereby dismissed.”

The court odered Metuh to enter defence in respect of the prima facie case already established against him by the prosecution.
