Ishaq Bello, justice of the federal capital territory (FCT) high court, Abuja, on Monday, adjourned the trial of Olisa Metuh, spokesman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), because he could no longer see clearly.
After the case was called, Bello complained to the counsel of the prosecution and that of the defendant that his vision had become “shadowy”, hence the trial would not continue.
He had earlier presided over a case before that of Metuh was called.
“I had a 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.
Metuh, who was in court, is facing charges for destruction of evidence brought against him by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
He is also facing multiple counts of criminal breach of trust and money laundering preferred against him by the EFCC at the federal high court, Abuja.
