Metuh is standing before the court on a two-count charge of allegedly destroying documents containing a statement he made to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission while being questioned by the operatives of the commission.

He is also facing multiple counts of criminal breach of trust and money laundering placed against him by the anti-graft commission at the Abuja court.

At the resumed trial, Bello, who had just concluded sitting on a case, said he could no longer see clearly because of a problem with his eyes, which were recently operated upon.

“I had surgery on my eyes, and I am already seeing shadows… so for this reason we will have to adjourn,” he said.

Thereafter the trial was adjourned to May 26.
