The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, on Tuesday urged an Abuja Federal High Court to revoke the bail being enjoyed by a former Peoples Democratic Party’s Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh.
EFCC’s lawyer, Sylvanus Tahir asked the court to send Metuh back to jail so he can attend trials from prison.
The counsel was reacting to Metuh’s lawyer’s application asking for further adjournment due to the applicant’s ill-health.
Metuh, who is facing trial for allegedly receiving the sum of N400m from the Office of National Security Adviser, NSA, under the leadership of Sambo Dasuki, is currently on admission at the Nnamdi Azikiwe University Teaching Hospital, Nnewi, Anambra State.
Tahir argued that without the medical report backed by a verifying affidavit and without the document making any reference to the case pending in court, the report was nothing but a trash.
However, Metuh’s lawyer, Dr. Onyechi Ikpeazu (SAN), urged the court to dismiss the application for bail revocation
