Olisa Metuh deliberately fell down in court – Justice Abang


Justice Okon Abang of the Federal High Court in Abuja today insisted that former National Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Olisa Metuh, deliberately fell during yesterday’s proceedings of the court.

Recall that Metuh, who is standing trial for allegedly receiving the sum of N400m from the former National Security Adviser, NSA, Col Sambo Dasuki (retd) had slumped while in court yesterday.

But speaking during the resumption of trial on Tuesday, Justice Abang insisted that Metuh’s fall was staged.

The trial judge stated this while correcting an impression created in the submission by a defence lawyer in the case, Tochukwu Onwugbufor (SAN), who urged the court to adjourn the matter due to Metuh’s absence in court on Tuesday.

According to Abang,

“The first defendant fell down on his own” when the prosecuting counsel, Sylvanus Tahir, made a submission.

“The court did not direct the doctor to attend to the defendant.

“I would not know the person that directed the doctor to see the defendant when I rose briefly upon hearing that the defendant fell down on his own.

“The court directed him to sit down where he was but he decided to fall down on his own.”

  1. Probably trying to kill himself…….OR what do think cos I don’t think any politician in Nigeria really wants to die..

  2. Everywhere in the world breaking the law is paid for by the law breaker. Anyone who googles it should find that in many places of the world people face charges on stretchers, a good example being recently in Egypt. The reigning thing in Nigeria is for “thieves” to feign sickness in some self deluding attempt to stall or subvert the course of justice.

    I hail Justice Abang, he is one of the few Justices in Nigeria who remember that your rulings good or bad with live after you like Lord Denning.

    And Metu I say this to you today, one day and soon too, you will make a very clear mistake with all these your pretenses. EFCC gave you the oppor to return what you stole initially, but you were then busy forming “Barrister at law”.

    You will definitely get what’s coming to you no matter how much you pretend and how much of the courts time you waste. You are one of the people that rendered most of the youths of Nigeria literate illiterates. Onye Oshi, barawo, thief, ole, grabber.
