Olisah Metuh's Associates Have Abandoned Him?



In what appeared to be a dramatic turn of events at the Federal High Court Abuja, the typically large crowd of political supporters and associates of the embattled Publicity Secretary of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Olisa Metuh, were conspicuously absent.

The scene was in stark contrast to the large number of his supporters who have previously gathered in front of the court. Even his entourage of political associates, who typically accompany Mr. Metuh to the court, were conspicuously absent in court.

The PDP Public Secretary is currently facing charges for his alleged collection of N400 million from the ex-NSA, Colonel Sambo Dasuki. He has been unable to meet the bail condition granted to him by both Federal High Court and FCT High Court.

Metuh has remained in prison since the first day of his trial when the court ordered that he should be remanded in the custody of a prison. At the resumption of the case in Abuja on Monday, he made the request for a variation of his bail condition but it has not been granted yet.

The prosecution has opened Metuh's trial with 16 witnesses lined up to testify against him in the case.
