The Federal High Court, Abuja, will on November 1 rule on whether or not to stay proceedings in a matter between the Federal Government and former National Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Olisah Metuh, pending the outcome of an appeal on the matter.

The former National Security Adviser (NSA), Sambo Dasuki, a party in the matter, asked the court to stay further proceedings pending the determination of his appeal.

The court would also rule on whether or not to stay execution on a subpoena order issued against Dasuki to compel him to appear in court to testify in the matter.

Counsel to Dasuki, Ahmed Raji, told the court on Tuesday that his client, on October 30, filed a motion on notice, praying the court to adjourn further proceedings relating to the subpoena order issued on Dasuki.

According to Raji, further proceedings should be adjourned pending the determination of an application filed in the Court of Appeal, seeking a stay of execution of the subpoena.

In his ruling, Justice Okon Abang said that all the applications filed by the parties would be entertained on November 1.
