Metuh’s Trial: Court orders Jonathan to appear on Wednesday




What Goodluck Jonathan Said In His Easter Message To Nigerians

Following a former Peoples Democratic Party’s National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh’s request for the summon of ex-President Goodluck Jonathan as a witness in his ongoing trial, an Abuja Federal High Court has ordered that the former President comes forward to testify.

The court directed that Jonathan testifies as a defense witness in the suit filed by the Federal Government against Metuh.

The presiding judge, Justice Okon Abang, therefore issued a subpoena compelling Jonathan to appear before the court tomorrow, October 25.
