The House of Representatives has urged the Attorney General of the Federation,  Abubakar Malami  to ensure that Olisa  Metuh is allowed to get medical treatment.

The resolution followed a motion of urgent public importance moved by Chris Azubogu (PDP, Anambra) during Tuesday  plenary.

Azubogu moved a motion of urgent public importance on the urgent need to save Olisa Metuh’s life, urging the House to adopt the motion on humanitarian basis.

Following amendments to the proposed resolution, the motion was adopted and the House resolved to urge the IG to look into the matter and allow Mr. Metuh access to adequate medical care.

Recall that the Abuja Division of the Federal High Court on Monday agreed to adjourn the trial of former Peoples Democratic Party spokesperson, Olisa Metuh, on health grounds.The court presided over by Justice Okon Abang granted the adjournment after seeing Metuh arrive the court on a stretcher on Monday.

He is being charged with corruption for collecting N400 million from the Office of the National Security Adviser under Sambo Dasuki.

Metuh’s lawyers led by a Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Onyeachi Ikpeazu, had made the application for adjournment during a previous hearing in January.

Ikpeazu presented a medical report from a doctor at the Nnamdi Azikiwe Specialist Hospital to support his application.

Reacting to the application, however, the prosecution counsel, Sylvanus Tahir, asked the court to revoke the bail granted Metuh, stressing that the court should consider Metuh’s absence as an attempt to jump his bail.
