The former national publicity secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Olisa Metuh has collapsed during his resumed trial in an Abuja High Court on Monday.

He was trying to make his way to the dock when he suddenly collapsed. The judge had to stand down the matter to enable medical officials to attend to him.

Metuh is standing trial for alleged money laundering of N400million being part of the funds linked with former National Security Adviser, Colonel Sambo Dasuki (rtd).

His trial earlier witnessed a dramatic turn on Monday, February 5, 2018 when he appeared at the Federal High Court in Abuja on a stretcher, days after the trial judge ordered him to show up or face the risk of forfeiting his bail.

His lawyer Emeka Etiaba had informed the court in January that his client was on admission at the Nnamdi Azikiwe University Teaching Hospital for an undisclosed ailment.

The former PDP spokesman was, however, wheeled to the court on Monday following the threat by Justice Okon Abang to revoke his bail if he fails to appear in court.

Metuh on Wednesday, March 14 approached a Federal High Court sitting in Abuja, to grant him permission to travel abroad for medical treatment.

This permission was however subsequently dismissed by the court. (Channels TV)
