Former President Goodluck Jonathan has been ordered by the Federal High Court court to appear as defense witness to case against former National Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party, Olisa Metuh.

Metuh is facing a seven-count charge of alleged diversion of N400 million from the Office of the former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki.

Metuh had on Monday requested the court to allow Jonathan to appear as his witness.

According to Punch, Metuh’s legal team filed the draft subpoena before Justice Okon Abang shortly after the Monday’s proceedings.

A court official said the judge signed the subpoena after retiring to his chambers and ordered him to appear in court on Wednesday.

“But whether or not the former President would appear in court on Wednesday would be dependent on if the court bailiff will be able to serve him at his home in Abuja between Monday and the end of Tuesday,” the source said.
