The Supreme Court has ruled that former National Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party, Olisa Metuh, has a case to answer concerning money laundering charges brought against him by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.

The Court of Appeal had dismissed the appeals for being incompetent, and went on to uphold the 2016 ruling of Justice Okon Abang of the Federal High Court in Abuja dismissing the defendants’ no-case submission.

The judgment of the Court of Appeal which was affirmed by the apex court on Friday had held that the appeals by the appellants failed to comply with constitutional requirement.

According to the Court of Appeal, Metuh and his company failed to first obtain the leave of either the trial court or the appellate court before filing a notice of appeal as required by the Constitution when filing an appeal against an interlocutory decision, on the grounds of mixed law and facts.
