National Publicity Secretary of the People’s Democratic Party is again having his day in Court. This time he’s making a no case submission before a Federal High Court in Abuja against the evidence of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission EFCC on charges of money laundering brought against him.

Metuh is saying that the testimonies of witnesses called the EFCC has not linked to the alleged crime. Justice Okon Abang on Thursday granted permission to the PDP spokesman to file ‎a written address with respect to the no-case submission. But before that, the trial judge granted the prosecution’s
request for amendment to the charges‎ in counts one, two and seven. The EFCC had concluded its case ‎with its eighth witness on February 9 and Justice Abang had adjourned till Thursday for Metuh to open his defence.

But rather than call a witness on Thursday, Defence Lawyer, telling the court that his clients intended to make a no-case submission and is urging the judge to give a directive on whether they could do so orally or by filing a written address.
