The case of Olisa Metuh, former National Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP), involving alleged financial malpractices amounting to sum of N400 million, ran into a hitch today, Monday, when he collapsed at the Federal High Court in Abuja.
The former PDP chief spokesman was said to have collapsed inside the court roon as he was being led to the dock even as family members and his physician rushed to assist him.
The trial judge, Justice Okon Abang had to wait for him to be attended to and in the resumption of the trial, Metuh’s counsel, Emeka Etiaba, disagreed with the point that the case should continue.
He threatened to withdraw from the case, arguing that he did not know the condition of his client who was on a stretcher after the fall.
Justice Abang however refused his decision to withdraw from the case
