Olisa Metuh’s appearance in court is nothing short of dramatic
Upon the presiding judge’s insistence that Metuh must appear in court despite his lawyer’s claims to ill health, the former spokesman not only showed up on a stretcher but sported a neck collar to perfect the look.
Metuh’s lawyer had earlier sought a long adjournment of his trial after providing his medical report to the court but the judge had refused.
Sighting him on a stretcher today however flipped the table. Justice Abang said, “I have seen the condition that the first defendant is. Seeing the condition, I am inclined to adjourn this matter to allow the first defendant attend his trial”.

See how Nigerians are reacting:
Olisa metuh is officially the latest drama king in Nigeria's politics. I think if judges keep seizing passports from our allegedly corrupt politicians, barring them from traveling abroad for the usual medical checkup, we would keep seeing more of metuh or even worse than.

So Olisa Metuh was wrapped like Moimoi elewe to court today, it's funny how many of these politicians are all always hale & healthy when stealing money, but will suddenly be suffering heart problem,kidney failure,shokolokobangoshe & all when it's time to account for looted funds.

and the Oscar goes to Olisa Metuh for the best performing actor in the movie Squandermania…..

To embezzle money and be free in Nigeria, you need an Oscar. Cos a lot of drama is involved. Just few months ago, Olisa Metuh was hale and hearty throwing blow at the PDP National Convention. Now he needed to be wrapped up with bandage like onions to attend a court proceeding.

BBNaija’s Tobi is an underperforming Yoruba demon?
He may have won the Head of House task twice in a row, he may be the strongest male contender in the house but viewers are certain Tobi is under a form of siege.
As the game’s rules state that the housemates have to compete in pairs, Tobi has had CeeC in his company just as all the other housemates, only that Tobi’s relationship with CeeC is baffling.
Viewers believe CeeC and Tobi have now become so inseparable it’s irritating. In fact, some are saying CeeC may have jinxed her partner. LOL!
Read the tweets:
So it has gotten to the point where Cee-C breaks a plate in the house and Tobi is the one to pick the broken pieces and his 'iyawo' couldn't care less and only says 'Tobi gat this' #BBnaija

With this new hairdo, Olamide channels American trap artiste, Travis Scott and Nigerians are not having any of it.
