Abuja - Embattled former National Publicity
Secretary of the People's Democratic Party (PDP), Olisa Metuh, has failed to
attend court due to an undisclosed illness.
He was scheduled to appear before Justice Okon Abang of the
Federal High Court sitting in Maitama, Abuja, on Tuesday.
Metuh is standing trial alongside his company, Destra
Investment Limited, on a seven-count charge of fraud to the tune of N400
million leveled against him by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.
