In an application filed by the former president before Justice Okon Abang of the Federal High Court, Jonathan said appearing as a witness in Metuh's trial will expose him to criminal trial.

He allayed fears that some individuals in President Muhammadu Buhari's administration are making several efforts "to harass, intimidate and rubbish” his reputation and that of his wife, Patience.
