Court turns down Metuh’s application to invite Dasuki, travel abroad

ormer spokesperson of the Peoples Democratic, Olisah Metuh.

The Abuja Division of the Federal High Court has refused Olisah Metuh’s application to compel Sambo Dasuki, a former National Security Adviser, NSA, to testify in his matter.

The court also declined Mr. Metuh’s request to allow him go to the United Kingdom for eight weeks of medical treatment.

Mr. Metuh, a former spokesperson of Nigerians former ruling PDP, is facing trial for alleged diversion of N400 million he allegedly received from the office of the former NSA.

The trial judge, Okon Abang, said his application lacked merit and that Mr. Dasuki was not a “compelable witness.”

Mr. Metuh sought to get the court to compel the State Security Service, SSS, to present Mr. Dasuki as a witness in court.

Mr. Dasuki has been in SSS custody despite being granted bail by various courts.

    This is a witch hunt. He is turn down because he is not from the North. Nonsense , we must separate ! All hail Methu, the document paper eater !

    • Abdulmojeed Nojeemdeen

      Dasuki is equally from the south I guess?

      • Julius

        You would think so by reading the nonsense they post daily about efcc/Buhari is not going after the Northerners. You and I know that’s not true.

        • Abdulmojeed Nojeemdeen

          Juli,we both know their antics Na. Here is a post for the wailers,please help me post it to them.They hate the truth,I AM VERY CERTAIN,
          IF YOU PULL DOWN THIS MAN – PMB;
          You will replace temporary hardship with permanent suffering.
          You will create fertile ground for the wicked to regroup. You will lay red carpet to welcome your common enemy.
          You will lavishly entertain your oppressors.

          I AM CERTAIN, IF YOU PULL DOWN THIS MAN –
          PMB;
          You will replace rare honesty with serial falsehood.
          You will replace integrity with painful impunity.
          You will relapse into unending regret; And “had we known” end all statements.

          I AM CERTAIN, IF YOU PULL DOWN THIS MAN-
          PMB;
          You will be calling for greater recession, To be managed by greediest elements.
          You will be asking the poor to go to hell.
          You will be looking at the end of an era. Probably the end of once prosperous nation.

          I AM CERTAIN, IF YOU PULL DOWN THIS MAN –
          PMB;
          The Courts and the Judiciary System will privatise itself such that the hope of common man be dashed And justice turns commodity market.
          The rich alone can bargain, And highest bidder gets the justice. Injunction will then carry price tag, Stay of execution will have price, Adjournment will be
          bought And common man turn to God or Self.

          I AM CERTAIN, IF YOU PULL DOWN THIS MAN-
          PMB;
          You will be asking for poison which is Strong enough to burst the belly And Fast in action to send beyond, Heralding the end of a journey.
          You will be seeing the last man Passionate about a nation,
          Thinking less about his passion, and the last generation with compassion And you have good things Exclusive to the richly Corrupt alone.

          I AM CERTAIN, IF YOU PULL DOWN THIS MAN –
          PMB; I AM CERTAIN !

          You will be stopping healing process, And the wound becomes fresher and painful Then healing becomes far fetched As teeth gnashing signal a Long time regret and Generations to come will be greeted with untold hardships. They will vehemently curse you such that the grave will press your ribs- to ribs.

            All I’m hoping for is for all of us doing something positive for the country. Yes, we must criticize the government and the president, any president but, lying and abusing them is the wrong way to go.Obama once said that if everything ,all the problems are so easy to solve we wont need a president to solve them.

          • Ohnigeria Godsavenigeria

            No qualms, enjoy your bazaar while it lasted, liar Mohammed have employed you and your band of satanic evil agents to mock Nigerians who are dying, groaning and suffering because of Buharis calamitous ineptitude leadership that have destroyed every institution in Nigeria.
            Because of 200k a month they are paying you, like Judas, you have sold your depraved soul. To you evil is good and good is evil.
            Your sound and very fit Buhari is in London for one month now running tests while sick Nigerians are prevented from traveling out to seek medical attention.
            Let’s watch this game and see how it will end for what ever have a beginning must surely have an end.

          • kinsly

            Does Buhari have a criminal case in court hanging on his head? Tell me a country that allows a citizen under criminal harvest to leave there shores?

          • Tola

            Regrettably a good and perceptible Economist does not wail about today but what today’s policy portends for tomorrow because policies have significant lag in their effects. Some of us started shouting since 2005. SLS shouted in 2012. What you are reaping today was sown many years ago. What you can only say today is that the government is slow in her people and agric policies, such that if oil price rebounds again, the old distortion will overwhelm the feeble efforts. The anticorruption and infrastructural policies seem fairly ok. Speed up people programs ( educ + health) and move more aggressively on agric. The cbn can only gain control of the monetary policy after growing reserve to a sizeable amount ( > 9 mths import cover). Any fairly educated person that does not know we would be in this situation if oil price dipped below $60 in 2014 should reexamine himself.

      • Paschal Charles

        Sit down with that your tribalism . Is it not Dasuki that shared the money to all of them, why is court refusing Dasuki to witness in the case. It means they are all fooling us .. enough of all these distractions .

      Breaking News:
      ……………………

      • “The Federal Government, on
      Thursday, re-arraigned the Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki, before the Code
      of Conduct Tribunal, CCT, in Abuja, on an amended 18-count corruption charge. The
      government prosecution counsel told the tribunal that as a governor, Saraki, in
      2008, transferred the sum of $73, 223. 28 to a bank account he operated outside
      Nigeria. Saraki allegedly failed in his second tenure as Kwara State governor
      to declare his interest in an American Express Bank, New York card No.
      374588216836009 through which he transferred $3.4million between August 2009
      and October 2012 from his GTB domiciliary account No 441441953210 to the
      American Express Services Europe Ltd No. 730580 for onward credit to the said
      card account. He said the cash lodgements were in excess of Saraki’s salary as
      a governor”.

        MUHAMADU BUHARI may be ignorant on state administration under constitutional rule
        but at least he should know how to sign his own resignation letter if he is so incompetent
        he can’t get Bukola Saraki on documentary evidence of presumptive thefts in excess of
        Bukola Saraki’s legitimate salary as a public servant. For so long as rigmarole continues
        at the Code of Conduct Tribunal it is Muhamadu Buhari that will acquire a bad smell like
        a retarded child who droops spittle on his dirty singlet. Buhari must make up his own mind.

    @disqus_P6H4CtCIeu:disqus ,

    Suicidal PDP officials in government ask for death

    Don’t shed a tear for Olisa Metuh, don’t feel sorry for any PDP member in jail or about to go to jail;
    don’t waste your sympathy for the millions of dollars seized from PDP members’ private accounts,
    don’t cry for Patience Jonathan or for Ayo Fayose or for Goodluck Jonathan. The PDP members
    asked to be jailed and flogged. They are getting what they asked for. Fools die! Twenty months
    ago these PDP creatures were in total control of the Police, the army, the air force, the navy and
    all federal Ministries and parastatals. How they became jail birds is a historical study in idiocy.
    The PDP was in control of EFCC and SSS and therefore had proved reports of thefts by APC.
    PDP had the dossier on Bola Tinubu’s acquisitions, the PDP had dossier on Buhari’s Wasc
    false claims constitutionally dis-qualifying Buhari from even holding public office.

    Almost all the aces were with
    the PDP party. What did the PDP fools do with a penalty kick awarded them for the thefts
    and forgeries of APC members? Nothing! “I will not interfere, i do not interfere“, said
    the buffoonish Goodluck Jonathan who was looking for a non-existent high moral
    road, when asked to simply do a common sense duty and uphold the law of Nigeria.
    Jonathan was more naively hollering for a meaningless “One man one vote“,
    as APC members’ crimes and thefts were beatified with impunity in consequence.
    Why should Patience Jonathan’s $15m not be seized after that PDP buffoonery?
    Why should Ayo Fayose’s accounts and houses not be seized for idiocy in office?
    Why should Reuben Abati not be jailed for Goodluck Jonathan’s immoral stance?
    Don’t waste your tears for PDP officials in government. They all asked for death.
    PDP government which refused to uphold the law of theft against APC, was bad.

    • AFRICANER

      Brilliant!

      The remarkable resemblance of Jonathan and PDP to Obama and the Democratic Party is uncanny!

      It can only lead one to conclude that when presidents are produced by a minority race or tribe, it produces a disaster for the party.

      • Willie-Harry

        @187665873247990:disqus

        Let’s just hope
        that history will be less harsh on Goodluck Jonathan. The current global
        verdict that he was a “buffoonish president” is bad enough. When historians
        take a second look at how he lost 70% electoral support he had in 2011 and
        became a stubborn goat to be flogged in each state outside the old Biafra
        region, until he was defeated in the 2015 election, future historians may
        rather conclude that he was a public nuisance. Jonathan’s education was so irrelevant to
        country administration that he didn’t know what to do as the omens gathered.

        Jonathan took the 2015 election
        as just another election. He did not see that for the first time in
        Nigerian history Muslims were being inspired by global jihad to form the
        first-ever Islamist party in Nigeria. Jonathan could not see the wood for the
        trees. He did not know and still does not understand that Islamist Jihadists
        take no prisoners. If he expects APC to leave him alone to enjoy whatever he
        took by virtue of office he’s worse deluded, because he’s the main target of
        Buhari’s disguised war against corruption.

    There appears to be a deep rooted unbelief in Nigeria from those who have even killed in order to govern the country,why those who have been in charge of the country or are still in charge dash out of the country at the slightest opportunity indicates that they were not ready or are not ready to turn things around,it is immoral for these people to keep seeking outside of Nigeria services they denied Nigerians even as we speak

    • FirecloudOFGOD

      If Buhari is allowed to leave the country, why should Metuh not be allowed? Do not get me wrong! All I am saying is that Buhari has always been in the vanguard of managing this country under various capacities. Though he is now President, that does not accord him more privileges than any other citizen. He is sick so is Metuh. Metuh just happened to be a more recent player in the political arena and sadly in an era where the dominant mindset reigning was one of ‘Stealing is not corruption’!

      This is a stark lesson for the present APC members who were previous PDP bandits, to remember that the hole they dig now, may be the same hole they end up falling in, in future.

      As a side story: The face, comportment and composure of Metuh truly commands pity. Is this the case of how the mighty are fallen?

    What the Judge meant to say is that “Dasuki’s dead body is not a compellable witness.”

      @disqus_MSz5KF4VNF:disqus

      “Buhari is not coming Back.
      Buhari may not be dead, but he might as well be – too sick to rule, too greedy
      to leave. How can he have a broken body and a distracted mind and retain the
      strength and focus to lead Nigeria out of social, political, and economic turmoil?
      I speculate Buhari is suffering from either a kidney failure or pancreatic cancer,
      but even if Buhari comes back home, we all know his policies of the last two
      years have left the country almost completely stagnate.”

        Forget that thing…! This Globalization. A New World Order. Buhari can rule Nigeria from wherever he is.

        The Capital of Nigeria is now London.
        The Capital of State for Nigeria, remains Abuja.
