The Federal High Court in Abuja on Wednesday gave the court bailiff five days to serve former President Goodluck Jonathan with the subpoena compelling him to appear in court.
The court also ordered the counsel prosecuting Metuh, Sylvanus Tahir, to persuade the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission to ensure appears in court on October 31.
Jonathan is expected to serve as witness in the trial of a former National Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party, Olisa Metuh.
The court had issued two separate subpoenas on Jonathan and Dasuki, asking them to appear before it on Wednesday.
Justice Abang said Jonathan had yet to be served the subpoena.
He noted that singular attempt by the court bailiff to serve Jonathan personally with the witness summon at his home in Abuja, was not sufficient.
He therefore directed the bailiff to take further steps to ensure personal service on Jonathan within five days from Wednesday.
He said the ex-President will be served through substituted means after five days.
