Dasuki Absent As Metuh’s Trial Resumes


The trial of the former National Publicity Secretary of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) Olisa Metuh has recommenced at the Federal high court.

The case continued despite the absence of former President Goodluck Jonathan who had been invited as a witness and former National Security Adviser, Colonel Dasuki.

The prosecutor in the case, Mr Sylvanus Tahir, however, informed the court that despite the fact that the EFCC wrote to the DSS to produce Colonel Dasuki in court, the legal adviser of the DSS informed him that Dasuki refused to appear on grounds that his legal team told him not to.

Metuh is facing trial for allegedly receiving N400 million out of the $2.1 billion dollars arms fund from the former National Security Adviser to Doctor Jonathan, Colonel Sambo Dasuki.

The Federal High Court had on October 24, 2017, ordered Mr Jonathan to appear before it,  to testify as a witness in defence of Metuh.

Meanwhile the Federal Government’s case against a former Attorney-General of the Federation, Mohammed Adobe, has been adjourned to November 4.

No reason has been given for the adjournment.
