Metuh begs to use toilet as he was being sentenced


One-time spokesman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Olisa Metuh caused a mild-drama in the court on Tuesday.

Justice Okon Abang of the federal high court found Metuh guilty of the seven counts and sentenced him to 36 years in prison for money laundering.

The judge directed that the sentences shall run concurrently, meaning that Metuh will only spend the highest number of years of jail term, which is seven, in prison.

But midway into the judgment, a drama ensued as the convict in fear of the bad news awaiting him got his body system upset and asked to use the toilet which Justice Abang granted him.

After the proceedings ended, the ex-PDP scribe was surrounded by friends, relatives and political allies, including a former Minister of Aviation, Osita Chidoka, before he was led into a waiting detention room on the same floor with courtroom, by prison officials.
