EFCC BEGINS MOVES TO SEND EX-PDP SPOKESMAN, OLISA METUH RETURNS TO PRISON
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has commenced moves to ensure that former Publicity Secretary of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP returns to the Correctional Center (prison).
The development follows a fresh suit filed by the EFCC hinged on six grounds before the Supreme Court.
Brave Views gathered that the new suit is an appeal seeking to upturn the verdict of the Court of Appeal.
In the appeal, Sylvanus Tahir, EFCC counsel, argued that the judgment of the court of appeal “occasioned a gross miscarriage of justice.”
Tahir submitted that the appellate court failed to go into the merits of the case as determined by the trial court before making its decision.
The anti-graft commission also contended that the appeal court “erred in law and occasioned a miscarriage of justice by adjudging comments, remarks, views and opinion expressed by the learned trial judge in his judgment as amounting to bias”.
Brave Views recalls that the court of appeal voided Metuh’s conviction on December 16 on the grounds that the trial judge exhibited bias in the case.
The court of appeal then ordered Metuh’s retrial before a different judge.
