The absence of Justice Obiora Egwuatu of a Federal High Court, Abuja on Thursday stalled the re-arraignment of former National Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Olisa Metuh, over alleged N400 million fraud.
The court had, on Sept. 28, fixed today for Metuh’s re-arraignment, following Justice Egwuatu’s inability to sit on that day.
The case, which was on number 16 on Thursday’s case list, however, could not proceed again due to the trial judge’s absence.
Egwuatu was said to be attending judges’ seminar in Lagos State.
The court, therefore, fixed Feb. 15, 2022 for the former PDP spokesman’s retrial.
