Chief Olisa Metuh, former Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), arrived at the federal high court, Abuja, in an ambulance on Monday.
Abang had to adjourn the matter till March 15, expressing satisfaction with the position of Mr Onyeachi Ikpeazu (SAN), counsel to Metuh, that his client is indisposed.
It would be recalled that Metuh, who is facing corruption charge, could not appear for his trial at an Abuja High Court on Jan. 22 on health grounds.
Justice Okon Abang of the Federal High Court, Abuja, on January 22 had asked Metuh to be present at his trial on Feb. 5th or face jail.
Abang gave the order when he delivered ruling in an application filed by Metuh, seeking an adjournment to his trial on health grounds.
Metuh was admitted at the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of the Nnamdi Azikiwe University Teaching Hospital, (NAUTH), Nnewi.
Prof. Anthony Igwegbe, Chief Medical Director (CMD) of NAUTH, who confirmed that Metuh was on admission at the hospital, declined further comments.
