BREAKING: Federal High Court Finally Orders Ex-President, Jonathan, To Appear In Court In The Next 24-Hours

The Federal High Court in Abuja, on Monday night, ordered President Goodluck Jonathan, to appear before it, to testify as a witness in defence of a former National Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Olisa Metuh.
A court official confided in Punch’s correspondent, that Metuh’s legal team filed the draft subpoena before Justice Okon Abang, shortly after the Monday proceedings.
The court official said that the Judge signed the subpoena, after retiring to his Chambers at the end of Monday’s proceedings.
The source however, indicated that Jonathan’s court appearance on Wednesday, would be dependent on whether or not he would be served with the subpoena signed by the Judge, between Monday and today (Tuesday). 
It was learnt that the Abuja home of the ex-President was indicated on the subpoena as his service address.
The source said: “I can authoritatively tell you that Metuh’s legal team filed the subpoena before the Judge on Monday, and the Judge signed the subpoena promptly after the proceedings, on Monday.
“The Judge indicated in the subpoena that the former President should 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.”
