National Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Olisa Metuh is suing the Federal government over his prolonged detention in custody of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.
Olisa Metuh is confined over his alleged involvement in the embezzlement of the Arms fund deal which was in the care of former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki of which he was said to have received N400 million.
The suit was filed by his counsel, Ebun-Olu Adegboruwa;
“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,”
