Today, arrested spokesperson of the PDP, Olisa Metuh, tore a statement he voluntarily made to the EFCC regarding how he got N400m from Dasuki. He allegedly tore the statement after it was presented to him for
endorsement, as part of preparations for his prosecution. .
A source told PremiumTimes that: “Rather than sign the document, Metuh on realising the weight of his confession, seized the documents and proceeded to tear them.” He added that Metuh later tried to stuff the papers into his mouth before he was stopped by operatives who managed to recovered the torn pieces of papers from him. .
Another source said the attempt by Metuh to destroy a major evidence in the case against him was an offence which could attract a separate charge in court. “The tearing of statement is tantamount to willful destruction of government property and it is a serious offense.
Also the fact that he obstructed operatives from performing their job is also a criminal offense. We will explore the possibility of filling a separate charge against him at the FCT High Court,” the source said…… maybe he was hungry……. Cc: PT
