Nigeria: Olisa Metuh Arrested by the EFCC

The National Publicity Secretary of the People’s Democratic Party Chief Olisa Metuh has been arrested by the EFCC. The PDP in reacting to this through Prof. Adewale Oladipo the party’s National Secretary, the party said that the arrest did not come as a surprise to them as Metuh had been receiving lots of threats from the APC lead government.

According to the PDP, the aim of the Buhari led administration which it is accusing of witch-hunting PDP members and turning a blind eye to clearly corrupt APC members, is to “install a dictatorial one-party state.”

Pro Oladipo said “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.”

He continued by saying “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.”

The PDP went on to call on all well meaning Nigerians  and indeed the international community to resist the attempt of the mew government to derail Nigeria’s democracy. According to them, this is a democracy the PDP “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”.

“We therefore forewarn the FG and its agencies to save our democracy and forthwith release our National Publicity Secretary.”
