OLISA METUH : EFCC Escapes By The Whiskers. by PhockPhockMan: 7:47pm On Feb 10, 2016
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission EFCC on Wednesday escaped a reprimand from a Federal High Court presided over by Justice Okon Abang for issuing a press release on court proceedings the trial of the National Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party PDP, Chief Olisa Metuh
The matter came up at the resumed hearing of the case of human rights abuse instituted by Chief Metuh against the EFCC for detaining him illegally for two weeks.
The EFCC spokesman, Wilson Uwajeren had in a statement on Tuesday issued a press statement on the appearance of one of its prosecution witness and officer in the commission, Detective Junaid Sa’id in the case against Chief Metuh, which Metuh’s lawyers insisted was one-sided and misrepresented the court.
Chief Metuh’s counsel, Adedioe (SAN), told Justice Abang that Chief Metuh is under trial by his court not by EFCC or the press. “It is your lordship that is trying Chief Metuh not the press or the EFCC” He then urged the court to take action to prevent the continued misrepresentation of court proceedings. “We should not justify what is not justifiable.
EFCC lawyer, Ugwu esq, transferred the blame to the press and said “I know the press, they have the penchant for sensationalism. This is the problem we have in this country, they will hear what happen, go home and misinterpret”.
However, in his short ruling after hearing the two counsels, Justice Abang declined action, saying the issue should be brought up during the continuation of the criminal matter.
Metuh’s lawyers are complaining that the EFCC, a principal party in the case issued a press statement but hid from the public certain facts established in court including the acknowledgement by the prosecution witness, Junaid Sa’id, during cross examination that Chief Metuh never ate his statement while with the commission.
They are not happy that the EFCC statement did not reflect the fact that the prosecution witness also read out a section in the ONSA document wherein it was expressly stated that the N400m payment to Chief Metuh followed due process.
The EFCC operative had also stated, that in the cause of his investigation, he did not come across any evidence that Chief Metuh had any personal relationship and/or direct dealings with the former NSA Sambo Dasuki.
Also he confirmed that he has no documentary and/or oral evidence to back his claim that Dasuki withdrew N10b and changed it into dollars and distributed to top PDP leaders during their national convention, as well as his claim that the $2m given to Nneka Ararume actually came from the sum allegedly withdrawn from Dasuki.

Judge adjourned for ruling on March 7, 2016

Are you not committing the same offence EFCC is accused of committing? Imagine you pronouncing an accused innocent before judgement day.

Sometimes I wonder, if we're being played by the APC government, what are they really up to? What's going on behind the curtains? We may be here wailing while they're busy selling us to the Devil.

Can someone here pls translate this to english? I was told when a mad person argues with another mad person, the argument is always in a mad man language, understandable to fellow mad men.
A summary in English would be appreciated, not all this 'my lordship' language.

Jonathan has said it long ago that he never approved $2.1million on arms. Dokpesi has said APC is only cooking up bogus amounts. APC is a scam.
The truth will finally come out.

I know you have to justify you pay by posting trash all over the place to suit the interest of your pay masters, but i implore you to give way to common sense and rational reasoning on certain issues. You just read a well articulated post that proves apc's media trial of corrupt politicians a shameful farce and an ignoble sham, and this is the best you can come up with?? Aisha's rice indeed works wonders.

Interesting. Nobody actually knows or understands what is going on in Nigeria today. One minute,you think the govt of the day is right,and the other minute,it appears like the govt is wrong. There's a lot of misrepresentation of facts going on and everything just seems confusing and chaotic.

Where is d source of this information? I found d source unreliable as it is not known to any of us here. I also found d writer biased and he succeeded in shooting himself in d leg by displaying d act he claimed d defendant complained about in court by publishing d court proceedings too.
