The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has filed a seven-count charge against the spokesman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Olisa Metuh.

The charge marked: FHC/ABJ/CR/05/2016 was filed before the Federal High Court, Abuja, on Thursday morning.

Metuh is charged with breach of public trust, corrupt acquisition of public funds and money laundering.

A lawyer to the EFCC, Rotimi Jacobs (SAN), said Metuh may be arraigned on Friday.

Also, Justice Okon Abang of the Federal High Court, Abuja, has refused Metuh’s application to compel the EFCC to respond to his fundamental rights enforcement application on Thursday.

Justice Abang, in a ruling, said since the fundamental rights enforcement procedure rules allows a respondent five days to respond.

He rejected application by Metuh’s lawyer, Ifedayo Adedipe (SAN), to abridge the time within which the EFCC could file its response to his (Metuh’s) suit.
