Money laundering: Metuh hospitalised, lawyer tells court

A former national publicity secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party, Olisa Metuh, was absent from the Federal High Court in Abuja for his trial on money laundering charges involving the N400m he allegedly received fraudulently from the Office of the National Security Adviser in 2014.

Meuth’s lawyer, Dr Onyechi Ikpeazu (SAN), informed the trial judge, Justice Okon Abang, on Monday that the ex-spokesperson for the PDP was absent from court because he was on an admission at the Nnamdi Azikiwe University Teaching Hospital in Nnewi, Anambra State.

He told the judge that the hospital on behalf of the defendant sent to the court a letter dated January 21, 2017 stating that it had admitted Metuh since January 20.
