The officials of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Tuesday stormed the residence of the spokesman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Olisa Metuh inviting him to the commission’s headquarters.
A statement by Richard Ihediwa, Special Assistant to Metuh said upon enquiry on the reasons for the invitation, the officials stated that he has some issues to clear with the commission.
Ihediwa added, “They also said he was not being arrested but a friendly invite.
“The operatives, four in number, came in a White unmarked Toyota Hiace bus.
“As at the time of issuing this statement, Chief Metuh is still being kept at the commission’s headquarters and his lawyers were making frantic efforts to reach him.
“While details of why Chief Metuh was invited is yet to be made public by the commission, it could be recalled that severally, Chief Metuh, as the mouthpiece of the opposition party had alerted in various press conferences and statements that he has been under threat and that the ruling party and the government have been very uncomfortable with his stance.
“The latest being the outburst and threats by the National Chairman of the APC, Chief John Oyegun in reaction to Chief Metuh’s criticisms of President Buhari’s widely criticized response on government’s disobedience of court orders, during the last Wednesday’s Presidential Media chat.”
