Olisa Metuh, former spokesman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), collapsed at a federal high court in Abuja on Monday morning.

He was making his way to the dock for his resumed trial when he fell down.

After he fell, medical personnel and Metuh’s relatives rushed to where Metuh was.

Okon Abang, the presiding judge, had to stand down the matter to enable the former PDP spokesman receive medical attention.

After that, Abang said the trial would go on but Emeka Etiaba, counsel to Metuh, argued that the court could not go on when his client was lying on a stretcher.

“The 1st defendant had a terrible fall while trying to mount the dock, and I don’t even know if he is alive on that stretcher,” Etiaba said.

“Since the court has insisted on proceeding with trial, I announce my withdrawal from the trial.”

Metuh is standing trial for alleged money laundering of N400 million being part of the funds linked to Sambo Dasuki, former national security adviser.

However, Abang refused Etiaba’s withdrawal.

On April 19, the judge barred him from travelling abroad for medical treatment due to his deteriorating health.
