It would be recalled that a Federal High court presided over by Justice Okon Abang had denied a request by Metuh's lawyer for a long adjournment owing to his client's health condition.
But Okon Abang refused the application for a long adjournment and threatened to allow the application made by the prosecution for the revocation of Metuh’s bail if Metuh was not in court on Monday.
However, on seeing the spokesperson in court on a stretcher on Monday morning, the judge adjourned the matter till March 15. “I have seen the condition that the first defendant is. Seeing the condition, I am inclined to adjourn this matter to allow the first defendant attend his trial” . the judge said.
