A former spokesperson of the Peoples Democratic Party, Olisa Metuh, collapsed in court on Monday at the continuation of his trial for alleged fraud.

Metuh had been charged to court by the EFFC  on a seven-count charge for alleged diversion of N400 million.

He was alleged to have received the money from the office of the former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki.

Metuh had been brought to the court by an ambulance; and while he was walking towards the dock after been called , the former PDP spokesperson fell, creating an abrupt chaos in the court room.

Mr Metuh is said to be suffering from spinal cord injuries and has appeared in court on a stretcher several times.

The counsel to the defendant, Emeka Etiaba, had told the court that he was prepared to hands off the case but the request was refused by the court.
