The high court of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) in Maitama, Abuja on Thursday, October 17, nullified the bid of the former spokesman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Olisa Metuh, to stop his trial.
The presiding judge, Justice Ishaq Bello, in his verdict, nullified Metuh's the no-case application on the grounds that it lacks merit, The Nation reports.
Justice Bello, therefore, ordered the former PDP spokesman to enter defence in prima facie case instituted against him by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that Metuh had disclosed who released the controversial N400 million to him.
The former national publicity secretary of the PDP said that it was former President Goodluck Jonathan who disbursed the fund.
He denied claims that Sambo Dasuki, the then National Security Adviser (NSA) released the sum to him.
