Justice Okon Abang of the Federal Hight Court, Abuja, has slammed the National Hospital, Abuja for transferring the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chieftain, Olisa Metuh to a hospital in Lagos state.

Justice Abang frowned at the fact that the doctor ordered Metuh’s transfer without informing the court.

The Judge also wondered why the location of the Lagos hospital was not included in the medical report.

Justice Abang  said “If I ordered investigation into the activities of the National Hospital regarding to Metuh’s medical report many heads will roll.

“I have authority over the management of the hospital because they are under my jurisdiction.

“The management is not above this court and the law.

“They cannot treat this court with levity; National Hospital has a duty to explain to the court what led to the transfer of Metuh from National Hospital, Abuja, to another hospital in Lagos.

“In any event, I have another medical report issued by Dr Olufemi Bankole from Lagos University Teaching Hospital that Metuh is on bed rest over back pains which he claim.”

The Chairman of the Presidential Advisory Committee against Corruption, Professor Itse Sagay has said that former Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) spokesman, Olisa Metuh can’t escape justice by simply returning the sum of N400 million which he allegedly laundered.
