While speaking at the Federal High Court in Abuja on Monday, the former National Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party, Chief Olisa Metuh, said that he would summon former President Goodluck Jonathan  as his defence witness.
 
Metuh's lawyer, Dr. Onyechi Ikpeazu (SAN), told Justice Okon Abang that he had written Jonathan to that effect but that the former President did not reply.
 
Ikpeazu said his intention was to apply for subpoena to be issued on Jonathan after the detained former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki, earlier summoned to testify as Metuh’s witness ended his testimony.
 
He said, “We have another witness on subpoena, and at the end of the evidence of this another witness, we will take a decision on whether or not the first defendant (Metuh) will testify. The other witness we want to subpoena is Goodluck Jonathan, former President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.”
 
While responding to further questions from the judge, Ikpeazu said, “We wrote him a letter but he did not respond and our plan will be to apply for the subpoena after the first application (for subpoena to be issued on Dasuki).”
 
Although Ikpeazu said Dasuki was scheduled to be the next to testify for the defence, the ex-NSA was absent from court on Monday.
 
Dasuki’s lawyer, Mr. Ahmed Raji (SAN), was however in court to oppose the request to compel the ex-NSA to testify as Metuh’s defence witness.
 
The court session is ongoing as at the time of filing this report.
