Court faults Olisa Metuh’s medical report
Justice Okon Abang of the Federal High Court, Abuja, on Tuesday picked hole in a medical report submitted to his court by Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) spokesman, Olisa Metuh.
Metuh had submitted the report issued by one Dr. O. O. Oyeleye, a Consultant Neurosurgeon at the National Hospital, Abuja, to support his application for adjournment on health ground.
The medical report contained information that Metuh, who was absent in court on Tuesday, required bed rest in the hospital.
The judge faulted the report on the ground that it did not state the duration of Metuh’s supposed bed rest.
Metuh and his company, Destra Investment Limited are being tried for alleged unlawful receipt of N400million from the Office of the National Security Adviser (NSA) and money laundering.
They allegedly received the money for contracts that were not executed.
They were also accused of engaging in money laundering to the tune of $2million.
