Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that the high court of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) in Maitama, Abuja on Thursday, October 17, nullified the bid of the former PDP spokesman 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.
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).
Legit.ng had also reported that Metuh levelled grave allegations against the spokesperson of the EFCC, Wilson Uwujeren.
At the hearing before Justice Okon Abang, Metuh brought to the court's notice a publication signed by Uwujaren and published on the commission's website titled; “How I Shared N400m from Dasuki- Metuh".
Metuh in his submission through his counsels told the court that publication was also shared on the commission's official Facebook page, Instagram and further distributed to several media organisations as a press statement.
