The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission ,EFCC, on Thursday brought an amendment charge against the Peoples Democratic Party ,PDP, Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh, one week after closing its case.
According to the Prosecuting Counsel, Sylvester Tahir, the new charges will have no material effect on the earlier charges brought against Mr Metuh.
He says it’s an opportunity to effectively prosecute the case and asked the court to compel him to take his plea afresh.
Counsel to Mr. Metuh, Onyechi Ikpeazu did not object to the new charges and when it was time to take his plea, Mr. Metuh pleaded not guilty and also entered a no case submission, Channelstv reports.
The case has been adjourned to the February 25, 2016 to allow Mr. Metuh defend his no case submission through a written address which will be adopted on that day.
