The case will continue on Thursday, the registrar of a Federal High Court said Wednesday.
Mr. Metuh is facing a seven-count charge of alleged money laundering to the tune of N400 million.
He was billed to open his defence Wednesday.
Mr. Abang had adjourned the opening of Mr. Metuh’s defence last Thursday, following an application by the PDP spokesperson for the case to be transferred to another judge.
The application, filed by Mr. Metuh’s lawyer, Emeka Etiaba, listed 16 reasons Mr. Abang should not be allowed to hear the case.
Also on Wednesday, the case against former Chief of Air staff, Alex Badeh, was also rescheduled to Thursday.
