Court orders Jonathan to appear in Metuh’s case
The Federal High Court has ordered President Goodluck Jonathan to appear before it to testify as a witness in defence of a former National Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party, Chief Olisa Metuh.
A court official confided in our correspondent that Metuh’s legal team filed the draft subpoena before Justice Okon Abang shortly after the Monday’s proceedings.
The court official said the judge signed the subpoena after retiring to his chambers at the end of Monday’s proceedings.
The source, however, indicated that Jonathan’s court appearance on Wednesday would be dependent on whether or not he would be served with the subpoena signed by the judge. It was learnt that the Abuja home of the ex-President was indicated on the subpoena as his service address.
