Metuh Speaks About His Ordeal In The Hands Of EFCC by alcmene: 4:22pm On Jan 13, 2016
Adeyanju Deji, the Peoples Democratic Party’s director of new media, has narrated how he visited Olisa Metuh, the PDP’s spokesperson, who was arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) last week.

Deji further quoted Metuh saying: “They have tried to blackmail & spoil my name. Just imagine all they have said about me. Telling lies against me.

“First they said I was collecting N5million Naira monthly from office of NSA, imagine if u were my staff how u will feel hearing that. Imagine how all the news people & my staff working with me felt when they heard I was collecting N5milion Naira from Dasuki. They will say so this man was a wicked man. So he was collecting money from Dasuki & other places & was always telling us no money.

“Then they said I received N1.4billion, another big lie. All what they wanted was for everybody to see me like a common thief & hate me.


“Finally they came back to say I only got N400million. I have made a statement that former president asked me to do an assignment 4 him. In my statement, I stated that former president Jonathan gave me an assignment, he asked for an account & I gave him my company account. I got N400m which I used for the job he asked me to do. I gave a report to him of job done & he was satisfied. I have a copy of the report I submitted to the former president. EfCC asked me who I shared the money to & said it’s not their buz.

“That if they have any evidence against me, they should charge me to court. I have not called anyone’s name & will never call anyone. It is not a crime to carry out an assignment for a president & successfully do it as well. I have no regrets.

“They asked me for a copy of my report to the former president. I asked them are they the Court? I stated in my statement that it is a lie that I was collecting N5m Naira monthly from Dasuki or anyone in GEJ’s government. I stated they should investigate me thoroughly. If I have ever received any kobo from any parastatal or agency then I will plead guilty.”

Deji noted that Metuh commended the PDP and all members of the party for the great job during the governorship elections in Bayelsa state.


Continuing his narration, Metuh was quoted to have said:

“Imagine the EFCC boss sent my lawyer to me to ask me to return some of the money from the N400m. Unbelievable.

“Deji this government are not interested in democracy or civil liberty at all. You are guilty once they say so.

“Reason why they are doing media trials is because they have noting to offer this nation. That’s why they are doing this Telemundo.

“All what we told them is the same thing the IMF woman came to tell them. We told them u can’t borrow to fund 2016 budget. What we told them about Dollar is what they have finally agreed to do now. They have no ideas or clue about governance.

“They don’t believe in democracy or the notion of “innocent before proven guilty.” They want to silent every critic.”

If this was here in the States, does this pendejo know that he just talked himself into at least 20 years in Prison?! HE HAS NO DEFENSE!!!

And why is the EFCC allowing all sorts of characters visit inmates awaiting trial? The ONLY people that should be allowed to visit him PRE-TRIAL are his legal team; even his spouse should only be allowed to speak to him on monitored phone calls and only for a few minutes each week until the conclusion of proceedings. He should not be allowed access to his PERSONAL phones, and his letters--- both incoming and outgoing--- except VERIFIED Attorney/Client correspondence should be monitored. The result of neglecting control of Pre-Trial Inmates is the idiocy we see in the above article.

Anyway, Nigeria is still learning, hopefully they get it right before it's too late.

Tell me this man sounds like someone who's been given the roughs by GMB SECURITY!

Metuh sounds upbeat and comical much to the frustration of his captors ... Lol@ The bolded!

Unlike them Apkobolokemi whom the EFCC had evidence on and charged them to court quickly, GMB security have no dime on Metuh hence Magu's rant in the media...

And where in YOUR STATES are citizens detained without trial nor evidence linking them to a certain crime

Where in YOUR STATES does the president pronounce suspects guilty even without being pronounced so by the court of competent jurisdiction

Where in YOUR STATES do security apparatus kill and maim unarmed protesters as if they are suicide bombers

Why should the EFCC arrest and detain a suspect and then start searching for the appropriate offence to charge him for while the suspect rots away in detention....Is that how they go about it in YOUR STATES

Olisa Metuh still speaks this boldly! Of serious concern was the needless and cheap deaths our gallant soldiers of The Nigerian Armed Forces were put to. Fathers, husbands and about-to-be married men were sent off to battle against Boko Haram never to return alive but in body bags due directly to the fact that Jonathan and his government of thieves stole and diverted money meant for weapons to prosecute the war. Those folks were mean, wicked,conscienceless and given their unrepentant stance deserve to face the death our soldiers were put to! Thank God military coups (which I deprecate) are out of fashion and Rawlings not in town.

That is the more reason why the EFCC should take them to courts to secure their conviction.Why on earth are the EFCC so scared of going to court?

They should charge the accused to court so we'll know the true state of these accusations and counter accusations.

If you have a case against Metuh, take him to court and convict him. Thats what he is saying. Dont arrest me and then start looking for what I did. Before arresting me, you should have known what I did and gathered your evidences.

A "suspect" is begging you to take him to court.

And you are not taking him to court. It means that you dont have a case against him.

PMB is simply trying to silence all forms of criticism. But its not working. This briggando will eventually be their undoing.
