Delivering the lead judgment of the three-man panel of Justices, Justice Peter Ige, directed Justice Abang to indicate the date for which the DSS must produce Dasuki in court for the trial.

Recall that Metuh is standing trial before Justice Okon Abang of the Federal High Court, Abuja.

However, in the unanimous judgment, the Court of Appeal also ordered Justice Abang to immediately sign the subpoena filed by the ex-PDP spokesperson.

The court equally upheld Metuh’s appeal and nullified the ruling delivered by Justice Abang on February 23, 2017, which refused to grant Metuh’s application for a subpoena to be issued and served on Dasuki.
