Appeal court nullifies Olisa Metuh’s conviction, orders fresh trial



The Court of Appeal sitting in Abuja has nullified the conviction and seven years jail term imposed on a former spokesperson of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Olisa Metuh, by Justice Okon Abang of the Federal High Court, Abuja.


A three-man panel of the court led by Justice Stephen Adah in a unanimous judgment held that the proceedings of the Federal High Court leading to the conviction of Metuh and his company, Destra Investment Limited, were tainted with bias and therefore must not be allowed to stand.

Delivering the lead judgment on Wednesday, December 16, Justice Adan held that the utterances of the trial judge, Justice Okon Abang, in the course of the trial, established that he was biased against the convicts and therefore, ordered that trial be conducted afresh.
