Federal High Court Fixes October 14 For Arraignment Of Ex- PDP Spokesman

Following an alleged N400 million fraud, a Federal High Court sitting in Abuja had on Tuesday fixed October 14 for the arraignment of former National Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party ( PDP), Mr. Metuh.

The date for the hearing was fixed following the absence of new trial judge, Mr. Obiora Egwuata, in Court, although other parties involved in the matter including, Metuh were present.

It was on record that the Court of Appeal in Abuja on December 16, 2020, had earlier nullified a Federal High Court judgment that convicted, and, sentenced Metuh to seven years imprisonment for money laundering.

The trial judge Okon Abang's judgment, against Metuh was declared biased after a check by a three- man panel of Justice of the appellate court.

The Court maintained that Mr. Abang had in the disdainful remarks he uttered in the judgment, betrayed his mindset against the defendant whom he accused of writing various petition against him.
