‘Don’t kill Metuh’ – PDP cries out...Says arrest last straw that may break Nigeria’s democracy

Read the PDP statement below...
The national leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) demands an immediate release of the party’s National Publicity Secretary, Chief Olisa Metuh, who was Tuesday morning invited and detained by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission
This development, which did not come to us as a surprise given series of threats to our party’s spokesman by the APC and the Federal Government, who are obviously not comfortable with our stance on the confused state of the nation under their watch, is a continuation of APC’s grand design to silence and decimate the PDP.
The arrest of Chief Metuh today underscores the growing political intolerance in our country and the foisting of a police state which was last Wednesday underscored by the President and Commander-in-Chief himself, who defended why a government in a democracy should flout constitutional provision and brazenly disobey court orders.

This onslaught against our spokesman, according to intelligence available to us is part of a larger script by the government to ensure that PDP wings are finally clipped in their mission to install a dictatorial one-party state in the country.

The excesses of security agencies under this government, especially the Directorate of Security Services (DSS) and the EFCC, in abridging the human rights of PDP members have become worrisome and a threat to our democratic evolution.

Nigerians and the international community will recall that on a number of occasions, the PDP, through its spokesman has been outspoken on some undemocratic proclivities being exhibited by the APC-led Federal Government in the last seven months.

The PDP insists that for whatever reason Chief Metuh was arrested, his rights as a citizen under the law must not be trampled upon. We therefore demand for his immediate release and that due process of investigation and prosecution concerning him should be strictly adhered to.

We state this because we have been made aware of top directives to break Chief Metuh and if possible poison him during his detention by the EFCC.  Chief Metuh, has since his arrest at about 10 am, has been kept incommunicado, with his lawyers denied access to him.

The PDP declares the arrest of our spokesman as the last straw that may break our democracy. We therefore forewarn the Federal Government and its agencies to save our democracy and forthwith release our National Publicity Secretary.

We are also calling on the international community and well-meaning Nigerians to stand up for this democracy, which our party nurtured for 16 years and deepened to a level where the opposition, for the first time in our political history, had the opportunity to win in a general election.

Signed:

Prof. Adewale Oladipo
National Secretary

People do not change from dia truest nature. A leopard Neva losses his spots. Once a despot always a despot mere changing from agbada to tuxedo suit doesn't work d magic. Metuh has embarrassed PMB a lot hence his current plight. Tueh

I said it with the way this man and FFK were ranting, they must have benefited from the loots and so wittingly attacking president Buhari so that when they are invited by EFCC they will tag it witch hunt.
if you like call it Wizard-capture.
Justice must be done, you all must return what you stole from Nigeria.

Sorry, well meaning Nigerians are in support of Buhari. Every one must vomit their illicit and ill-gotten wealth. The days of impunity are gone. If the essence of Methu's vitriolic attack on Buhari was to secure an evasion for himself he got it wrong. #BuhariFireOn #EfccFireOn

PDP, very crafty people. They knew all these will happen cos all of them that were involved in the looting started being vocal about PMB so that in the end they can come out with the theory that Buhari is hunting people that were speaking against him.
Stupid people saying they should leave Metuh, did he or did he not take the money? That is my main concern. Nigeria did not even break for important thing, it is now for thief nonentity like metuh with mouth diarrhoeal disease.

I am not into partisan politics or have sympathy to any administration but I can authoritatively tell you, he (Metuh) collected money under his company name.

GOD WILL JUDGE US ALL.

Did anyone say they will kill him? They should be bold enough to say he is innocent about the stolen funds not trying to create fear. I am sure dats why he has been forming outspoken since, so he will use it a reason for his arrest and they think all Nigerians are fools.
Nigeria will not even feel his demise, we have lost innocent kids and millions of people. Who is Olisa Metuh? Abeg, return all the money or die in jail. Umu ewu.

Yet again people come up with disheartening comments and supporting looting. How long are we going to give support to people who have made our lives living hell? Go and check the IDP camps and you will understand the havoc and cruelty done to these people. People must account for everything they have done either good or bad. If this man is found guilty let him face the music. We have to stand firm for moral standards and truth. Anyone involved in looting; i mean ANYONE, should face the law.
