Olisa Metuh sues FG over his prolonged detention

Embattled National Publicity Secretary of PDP, Olisa Metuh, has dragged the Federal government before a Federal High Court in Abuja over his continued detention. Metuh is being detained for allegedly receiving N400 million from former National Security Adviser Sambo Dasuki.

In a suit filed by his counsel, Ebun-Olu Adegboruwa, Metuh claimed that his arrest by the antigraft agency was part of a plan by the ruling party APC, to silence the PDP.

Metuh said that since Buhari came into office in May 2015, he has organized the EFCC to serve as a tool to go after PDP members. He argued that his detention tramples on his fundamental human rights and also breached the African Charter on Human and Peoples Rights (Ratification and Enforcement) Act, Laws of the Federation of Nigeria, 2004.
“I verily believe that the applicant has not committed any offence other than his principled opposition to the ruling government and his arrest and detention are meant to silence the opposition and create a one-party state by the respondents to allow the APC to dominate Nigeria. Nobody knows the present whereabouts of the applicant, as to his exact place of detention, his condition in the custody and how he is faring. Recently, detainees in the custody of the 1st respondent have been dying due to lack of proper care and adequate medical facilities, as the 1strespondent is not normally well-funded to function effectively, except to be used by the ruling government to hound the opposition,”
No judge has been assigned to the case.

Its no coincidence that Metuh went on hunger strike.Him and his lawyer wants the court to impose the writ of habeas corpus on FG (produce the body).But this gimmick won't work
The way I see it,FG will produce him.The court will set him free.FG will appeal & that's the beginning of the end of Metuh.This stubbornness won't help him

Chizoba Orjioke said...

What is going on?? What is Buhari up to? Should we also believe that these are mere complaints 4rm "the wailing wailers" or is it time 4 Nigerians to stand their ground n rebuke this act of injustice being meted out to specific group of persons?.. Buhari should tread softly before he would be impeached in the coming months. This is really getting out of hand o, hmmm.

Linda I hv arrived, post my comment.

Complicated issue,

We are gradually slipping into Dictatorship kind of government n the sooner we do something about this the better for everyone.. I know some of you would o hectic to this n say they (pdp) deserves watever they are receiving, buh be careful, less they would start going after innocent citizens regardless of which party they support. Now is the time we all should call out Buhari n his Co horts to order..

Hello sir Metuh, if u've run outa ideas on what to use ur own share of the arms deal's fund to do other than to feed lawyers fat on a case u and I know u had already lost,pls there are so many charity groups to donate the money to. Hasn't it occurred to u that u may have directly or indirectly eaten the said money?Use ur head!
My heart goes out to the soldiers that died because they were ill-equipped with arms!Some groups were in the choicED cities in the world squandering the money meant for defending the integrity of this great nation,what a shame!

It is shameful that Nigerians are beginning to mix issues. That someone is suspected of corruption should not be a premise to dehumanise the person or deny the person's basic human rights. Nigerians should pause and consider this: what will happen to any of us if someone cooked up some corruption charges against us? With the way this administration is wired,and we are all cheering, anarchy may ensue and there'll be no where for us to run

Olisa Metuh it is not by suing the government. Did you receive money from Dasuki or not? Answer the question because you cannot bribe any judge to set you free under Buhari. You are just fighting a lost battle. Your wailing and ranting will lead you nowhere. Just return the money.

Olisa Metuh did u respect human rights when boko haram was killing thousands of Nigerians and you were busy looting the money for arms that they would have used to kill boko haram?
