Olisa Metuh Hospitalised After Vomiting On His Way To Court

According to The Cable, beleaguered PDP image maker, Olisa Metuh is currently at the emergency ward of the national hospital, Abuja.

A close associate said: “Metuh was rushed to hospital last night. It is serious,”

“He is managing high blood pressure, diabetes and arthritis. The doctor asked him to stay at hospital, but he refused because he wanted to appear in court today. He is just stubborn. He does not want his health to get in the way of his trial.

“This morning he vomited in his car on our way to the court. It is sad. I cannot say all that he is going through, but it is bad. His health is deteriorating.”

Olisa Metuh is facing a seven-count charge of criminal breach of trust and money laundering after he allegedly received N400 million from the office of the National Security Advisor (NSA) in 2014.

Counsel to Metuh, Emeka Etiaba (SAN) explained to presiding judge Okon Abang that his client was not in good health, adding that his situation deteriorated on Wednesday night, before he started throwing up this morning. Etiaba then prayed the court to grant an adjournment to enable Metuh return to the hospital for proper treatment.

The case was adjourned to Monday as counsel to the EFCC, Sylvanus Tahir did not object the application by Metuh’s lawyer.
