Former spokesperson of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP Olisa Metuh has lost his bid to stop his N400 million fraud trial, as the Supreme Court, on June 9, 2017 dismissed his application seeking for a stay of proceedings.
Metuh is standing trial along with Destra Investment Limited for alleged fraud. He is facing a 7-count charge brought against him by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, before Justice Okon Abang of the Federal High Court, Abuja.
Metuh through his lawyer, Onyeachi Ikpeazu, SAN had filed the application seeking for a stay of proceedings at the High Court.
With this, Metuh’s trial is therefore expected to continue on June 19, 2017 before Justice Abang.
