Abuja - A Federal High Court will on March 9, 2016 decide the fate of the National Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Olisa Metuh.

Justice Obong Abang says he will either deliver judgment to dismiss the charges against him and acquit him , if he finds that Metuh has no case to answer .

He however says he will in the alternative deliver a ruling, ordering Mister Metuh to open his defence, if he finds that he has a case to answer.

Justice Obong reached his decision after Metuh filed documents and adopted same as his submission to prove that the EFCC has not made out any case against him.
