Former National Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party, Chief Olisa Metuh on Monday told the Federal High Court in Abuja that he would like to subpoena former President Goodluck Jonathan as his defence witness.
Dr. Onyechi Ikpeazu (SAN), his lawyer told the court that he had written Jonathan to that effect but that the former President did not reply.
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.”
Responding to a question by Justice Okon Abang, 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).”
Former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki who was supposed to testify for the defence, was absent from court on Monday.
