Jonathan absent in court, shuns summon in Olisa Metuh's trial

Former president Goodluck Jonathan, who was summoned to appear in court to testify in defence of the man he allegedly gave money, Olisa Metuh, was missing today in court.

Jonathan was conspicuously absent from the Federal High Court where he was summoned by Justice Okon Abang as a witness in the case involving the PDP National Publicity Secretary.

Recall that the Federal High Court had earlier ordered President Goodluck Jonathan to appear before it to testify as a witness in defence of Metuh.

Metuh’s lawyer had said they wrote to Jonathan earlier but didn’t get any response from him.
