Court Adjourns Olisa Metuh Trial Till Nov. 22
Court Adjourns Olisa Metuh Trial: A Federal High Court sitting in Abuja on Monday adjourned the trial of a former Peoples Democratic Party spokesman, Olisa Metuh, till November 22, 2016.
The presiding judge, Justice Ishaq Bello announced the adjournment of the case after the prosecuting counsel, Mr Sylvanus Tahir closed his case.
The ex-spokesman was docked by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), on a two-count charge of destruction of evidence.
During court hearing on Monday, Metuh’s counsel, Mr Onyechi Ikpeazu, cross-examined the prosecution witness, Mr Saed Junaid, an officer of EFCC, who investigated the matter.
Junaid told the court that he wrote the cautionary word not the statement because the defendant could write but admitted that the third page of the statements did not bear the signature of Metuh.
He further told the court that the reading by the team members was to make sure that what was in the statement addressed the issues raised in the matter.
After much deliberation, the judge then adjourned the case till November 22, 2016 for hearing.
