A former national publicity secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Olisa Metuh on Monday morning collapsed in court.
The incident happened just as he was making his way to the dock for his resumed trial at the Federal High Court in Abuja.
Metuh, who is being prosecuted by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, for the N400m he allegedly received from the Office of the National Security Adviser in 2014, fell down shortly after the case was called on Monday.
The incident happened about 9:01 am in the courtroom.
The presiding judge, Okon Abang, had to stand down the matter to enable the former PDP spokesman receive medical attention.
