Kaduna state's Governor Nasir El Rufai has been fined N10,000 for failing to produce his witness in a libel case against former Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh.

El Rufai had filed a N1.5bn suit against Metuh in 2014 for linking him to Boko Haram in 2014.

Since June 2016 El-Rufai had failed to produce his witness to confirm his claim against Metuh on four occasions.

During the resumed hearing of the trial on Wednesday, El Rufai's counsel, Rabi Adamu, said his witness is not available to testify, and prayed for an adjournment.

Reacting Metuh's lawyer, Ben-Chuks Nwosu, said the failure of the plaintiff to produce his witness showed that there is no case against the former PDP spokesman.

He then urged the court to compel the governor to produce his witness or immediately close the case. and demanded a N150,000 fine in favor of Metuh.
