It was gathered that the case was adjourned because the trial judge was attending a seminar.

Mr. Metuh is facing a seven-count charge of alleged money laundering to the tune of N400 million.

Mr. Abang had adjourned the opening of Mr. Metuh’s defence last Thursday to today, following an application by the PDP spokesperson for the case to be transferred to another judge.

In the same way, the trial of former Chief of Defence Staff, Alex Badeh was also rescheduled.
