Corruption: Court Orders Jonathan To Appear On Tuesday
A Federal High Court in Abuja has ordered former President Goodluck Jonathan and his former National Security Adviser Sambo Dasuki to testify before it on Monday.
Justice Okon Abang gave the order yesterday in a ruling on the invitation of the two men by former Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) spokesman Olisa Metuh as defence witnesses.
Justice Abang also ordered the court bailiff five days within which to effect personal service of subpoena (witness summons) issued on Jonathan.
The court had on Tuesday adjourned the criminal trial to yesterday for Jonathan and Dasuki, who were subpoenaed on the request of Metuh, to appear and testify as defence witnesses.
At the resumption of proceedings yesterday, neither Jonathan nor Dasuki was in court.
While there was evidence that Dasuki had been served with the witness summons, the court noted that its bailiff was not yet able to serve Jonathan.
