#DasukiGate: Olisa Metuh Tears Own Statement in EFCC Custody

Tope Oshin

The national publicity secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Olisa Metuh, allegedly tore the statement he made at the office of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) Tuesday.

Metuh has been in the custody of the Commission for allegedly receiving N400 million through a company he has interest in and receiving some monthly allocation from the Office of the National Security Adviser (ONSA).

Metuh according to media reports, was presented with copies of his statement to endorse by the investigating officer but rather than sign the document, seized the documents and proceeded to tear them.

Metuh was said to be contemplating stuffing the papers into his mouth in a bid to swallow them when he was stopped by operatives who managed to recover the torn pieces of paper from the PDP spokesman.

A close source revealed that Metuh’s action – trying to destroy a major evidence in the case – was an offence which could attract a separate charge in court.
