OLISA Metuh, spokesperson of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has been admitted at the National Hospital, Abuja, after throwing up. Metuh had been scheduled to appear before Justice Okon Abang of the Federal High Court Abuja for the continuation of his trial for money laundering.
However, his counsel, Emeka Etiaba, told the court that the PDP spokesperson was ill and sought the adjournment of the trial. Consequently, the judge adjourned the case to May 23. Online newspaper, The Cable, reported that the PDP spokesperson vomited repeatedly on his way to court. It quoted a source as saying his condition was serious.
Metuh had been taken to the National Hospital late April after he fell at PDP secretariat in Abuja. He had been about to take his seat for a meeting of the National Working Committee of the Party when he slipped. He had complained of serious back ache before the incident occurred. – Punch
