The spokesperson of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, Olisa Metuh is currently at the office of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, answering questions regarding some fund said to have been traced to his firm.

Operatives of the agency reportedly arrived the Abuja home of Mr. Metuh on Tuesday morning, and invited him to follow them to the commission’s headquarters.

Mr. Metuh’s aide, Richard Ihediwa, in a statement said upon enquiry on the reasons for the invitation, the officials stated that he has some issues to clear with the commission.

“They also said he was not being arrested but friendly invited. The operatives, four in number, came in a White unmarked Toyota Hiace bus,” Mr. Ihediwa said.

He also said as at the time of issuing the statement, Mr. Metuh was 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 pubic by the commission, it could be recalled that several times, 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 last Wednesday’s Presidential Media chat.

“The Office of the National Publicity Secretary will keep the public updated on any development on the issue,” the statement said.

The spokesperson for the EFCC, Wilson Uwujaren, could not be reached for comments at this time.

    Poor EFCC,a tool for political witch hunt!

    “EFCC is at its very ‘best’ yet again.

    It is almost as if they want to help the suspects by giving them advance notice of investigations or arrests.

    These are school boy errors.

    How can you be investigating someone and it will be the newspaper headlines.

    Then you read and it talks about how they have been investigating and details then it even says they MAY freeze the suspects account.

    Honestly this is incompetence at its highest level.

    I have never seen such an aggravated abuse of logic and common sense.

    The most laughable thing is that the same suspect who has been reading about his crimes in newspapers as a free man will then submit himself for interrogation and will be detained then the EFCC will ask the court to deny him bail as he may flee…this is even as the court will demand that his travel documents are submitted.

    So let me ask if he wanted to run away..should he not have done that while he was in full custody of his passports and knew that he was being investigated and may be arrested soon??

    After doing this then they will hold the suspect in custody for 2 days before going to search his premises…hahaha…when his people knowing that wahala dey can easily use 2 hours to destroy any incriminating evidence.

    What ever happened to the element of surprise??

    Honestly it is no hard to see that these are politically orchestrated dramas.

    • eclub

      So, your comment is good read for judges to use to free these suspects since they are NOT flight risks at all.
      If they knew that their arrest is imminent, why didn’t they flee?

      Release these people to prepare their defense and meet their authoritarian accusers in a court of law.

    • Burbank

      “What ever happened to the element of surprise??”

      There’s no need for any element of surprise – Nigerians knew that those culprits will be jailed under Buhari no-nonsense policy.

    Nazism 2016

    Now that Olisa Metuh has also been arrested, we can as well finally agree that “we are back to the Hitler days where all those that disagree with the Fuhrer are lined up to the stakes and executed!”

    Some of us warned Nigerians about this day – but we were told “the Man is a converted Democrat who has dumped in his Autocratic ways in his past” – so my advice to ALL the 2015 members of the PDP and APC Presidential Campaign Committees is to “Pack their beds; print out their bank statements for all the companies they are involved in along with copies of the CAC documents of those companies and head to the nearest Offices of EFCC in Lagos and Abuja.”

    Two, ALL the CEOS of TV Stations, Radio Stations, Advertising Companies should follow suit as well; so should the Printing, Event Companies as well; and then the Musicians that played on the podiums; the Comedians that warmed up the crowds; the Bloggers that received Bank alerts to push these campaigns and the candidates – everyone that worked on these campaigns in the federal and state elections should have their Passports seized and a big holding stage place – like the Lagos and Abuja Stadium should be used to hold them “easy processing” on their way to Kuje Prisons.

    Three, and those that have been pretending away from the honest conversation of “Campaign Funding & Financing in Nigeria” who are currently “doing point and kill today” should wait for their turn in 2019-2023 because the precedence has now been set – they would be led by Lai Mohammed through this same “execution lines” as well – because just like the current “hard times Buhari is enduring in Social Media today” which was created by his party versus GEJ, this would have become another Precedence that would be followed up upon by “those that replace Buhari in the future.”

    DSS Searches Governor Olusegun Mimiko’s Plane

    In a commando like operation, the plane conveying Governor Olusegun Mimiko of Ondo State to Port-Harcourt enroute to Bayelsa State was searched by men of the DSS.

    The stern looking men of the DSS swooped on the plane as soon as it landed at the Port-Harcourt Airport. The DSS men searched the plane, and even reportedly physically searched the Governor, his security details and aides.

    Governor Olusegun Mimiko is in Bayelsa State to show his support for Bayelsa State Counterpart, Governor Seriake Dickson in the upcoming Bayelsa State Supplementary Election on Saturday.

    When Queried on why they were subjecting a duly elected Governor of the Federal Republic, they answered that they had “orders from above”.

    • Akinwande Kolawole

      ‘A leader who has Political and Moral will to ask questions ‘ should have long asked questions on how his campaign funding was sourced. A good leader won’t be prosecuting Dasuki for spending N10b of former president security votes and appointed Amaechi who misappropriated N89b of Rivers money minister. A good leader won’t appoint Fashola who blew N1.2b on ‘unidentified storey building’ minister. It shows a morally corrupt leader with no sense of good judgment and good decision making.

    I went through several comments on sahara, punch, this day n Co. Still surprised that many people call this political vengeance, ask yourselves this question, did these people truly stole money? Should they be ignored bcos they are opposition party chieftains? Many says why only PDP members? Pls who have been ruling nigeria since 1999, APC? Out of all the PDP members that defected to APC, who among them was an official in GEJ’S administration? Metuh even confessed he got an undisclosed amount frm GEJ even b4 he was arrested. Dasuki named several people in his confession. You don’t expect tinubu, amaechi, or okorocha to be among the beneficiaries of the arms deal, it was strictlyt PDP thing. To be fore warned is to be fore armed, buhari made anti corruption is major aspect of his campaign and we all voted him, why now surprised at d anti corruption crusade? We are still discussing abt 2 billion dollar arms money, what is arrests begin on 20 billion oil fraud by madam Alison Madueke? If anti corruption and recovery of loot is the only success of buhari for 4 years, he will be my hero. God bless nigeria.

Already, we have another 5.6b dollars missing in NNPC under the Luciferic rule of Buhari. Is Buhari as the Minister of Petrelum Resources, ever going to be investigated or we allow him go free the same way we covered our eyes and noses to the theft of over 2.8b dollars–which he Buhari quietly denied over 30 years ago? Buhari is just joking with all these childish rubbish–called anti corruption crusade—–Our annual revenue generating capacity has gone down under him by 560b via REMITA.

    Dear Wailers,

    The real masses who vote dont read your posts. So the impact of your pro-PDP rants is near zero. Any day, they will vote Buhari no matter your ranting.

    The educated middle class voters are also smart enough to know what is going on and are aware that PDP stole Nigeria blind and PDP is not being victimized. They wil vote Buhari also no matter your ranting.

    For all other voting classes not in covered in above categories; this class of voters will do to you again what they did to Jonathan. This class of voters will follow you and wail, they will share the money with you and on the day of voting; they will vote against you.

    Buhari has not locked ANYONE up. EFCC has found billions in your account/EFCC has invited you for questioning/EFCC charges you to court/If you get bail EFCC will release you like Dopkpesi etc./If EFCC thinks you are such a person who is a flight risk, EFCC wil find a way to detain you by charging you with other offenses you are accused of. Accused these persons play games with the law to escape/avoid jail. EFCC also plays games with the law to keep them custody.

    N1.2 Billion was found in someones account that cant be explained. Try that in US or UK. Cry witch hunt in OK. Ibori will tell you more, ask him.

    Cry witch hunt all you want. God will bless Buhari with long life and good health.
    Nigeria will prosper despite all of you depraved people who wish her evil.

    I begin to see a whole lot of reason behind the school of thought that Buhari probably has an inferiority complex problem arising from his little or lack of proper education. This is a psychological challenge and the good thing is that it is curable. Rather than begin to wonder why after 30 yrs he still believes in arresting people without trial and/or refusing to release them after courts of competent jurisdiction acquits such detainees, we should move swiftly to get him some help before the country explodes into a calamitous uprising. Democratic principles are hinged on the rule of law which guarantees that the executive abide by the judgments of the judiciary and that the citizenry be free from harassment of any kind in any form. Thus far, Mr Buhari has been presented a posture of a feudal Emperor who is seemingly not just above the law but the law – with his instrument of terror (DSS & EFCC) terrorizing the populace under the guise of corruption. Nigerians must resist and stop this rampage before it consumes all of us.

    FAKE ARMS DEAL: EFCC MOVES TO ARREST PDP SPOKESMAN, OLISA METUH

    Arms Deal: EFCC Moves To Arrest PDP Spokesman, Metuh

    Baring any unforeseen circumstances, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) may invite the National Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Olisa Metuh, over his alleged involvement in the $2.1billion arms deal.

    A source at the EFCC also confided in LEADERSHIP last night that Metuh would be invited any moment from now or face arrest as part of the next phase of the arms deal investigation.

    The source, who sought anonymity because of the sensitive nature of the matter said, “Olisa Metuh will be invited any moment from now to explain his involvement in the money meant to purchase arms which has been traced to him and a company where he has a very big share which was used to siphon money from the Office of the National Security Adviser (NSA).

    According to the source, there are some documentary evidences which show how Metuh was receiving some money running to several millions of naira monthly from the ONSA and another through a company named Dietras

    “Metuh will be invited to answer questions over the monthly money going to him from the ONSA and another ones that went to a company, Dietras, where he has interest. It was the money that went to the company that were shared among some PDP top leaders like a former party chairman , ” the source added.

    When reminded how the commission would handle the controversy since Metuh is the spokesman of the opposition PDP, the source said, “We are not interested in his office but in the public money that found its way into his hands”.

    Speaking further, the source said that the PDP spokesman has been making noise in the media with a view to pre-empt the action of the commission, saying ,however, that, “It is high time Metuh is invited to know that we have documentary evidence against him.”

    Meanwhile, Metuh has faulted the EFCC for using the media to prosecute those who are under investigations and wondered how the media has been reporting stories of his investigations when the commission has not invited him.

    He referred to a media report in one of the national newspapers on Monday where it was reported that he was under investigation by the EFCC. He added that he was yet to be invited or questioned by the EFCC

    In the statement signed by his special assistant, Richard Ihediwa . Metuh accused the EFCC of using the media to prosecute its suspects, saying that the development could only happen under a tyrannical system.

    He said, “If indeed, the report is from the EFCC, then they should note that only in a period of tyranny are people investigated on the pages of the newspapers as a prelude for abuse and violation of their freedom and rights under the law.

    “It is instructive to observe that a mere media campaign of calumny does not in any way whatsoever translate to any evidence of guilt. It is rather an evidence of infringement on the rights of the citizenry and manifestation of the reign of tyranny.

    “In a democratic and civilized country, where there are issues that require investigations by such agencies, invitations are duly extended. However, to read daily of people being investigated in select newspapers betrays plots to portray them as guilty of fraud and crime, and targeted to convey the PDP as a corrupt party and the APC as party of Nigerians without sin.

    But efforts made to get the official position of the EFCC did not yield result as its spokesman, Wilson Uwujaren could not be reached on his phone at press time.

      Are you diapers wet again?

  • Lenz

    EFCC, please we are waiting for you guys to also pick up the basket mouth FFK… He, like Metuh, has been crying for attention since PMB came in… So, don’t disappoint him o…

    • Arabakpura

      It’s turn by turn!

    • Burbank

      That will be sooner than FFK would have hoped for.

      Fayose too.

  • IZON Redeemer

    The All Progressives Congress (APC) issued a statement through its then interim national chairman, Bisi Akande, calling President Goodluck Jonathan “a kindergarten president”. Was Liar Mohamed and Akande arrested by Jonathan because of that?
    2014 : The APC issued a statement through its national publicity secretary at the time , Lai Mohammed, calling President Jonathan “clueless and an incompetent President”.
    2015 : The APC issued a statement through its then deputy national secretary, Nasir El Rufai, calling President Jonathan “lazy, docile, incompetent, clueless,hopeless and useless” Did Jonathan order his NSA to arrest El Rufai?
    2016 : The APC, yes, same abusive APC, issues a statement through its current national chairman calling on PDP and Nigerians not to insult or abuse President Muhammadu Buhari.
    APC cannot suddenly pretend to hate insults.
    #FireOnBuhari and the Apes in APC!

    • Arabakpura

      …but the PDP were busy sharing money that they didn’t have the time to react then; however, the more grievous offense was that they didn’t invite the APC to partake in the sharing of the money or even allow their goats to eat some part of the yams!

      • Olu from South Africa

        Lol!

      • Bakanridi

        HAHAHA

  • Na only me Steal?

    BREAKING NEWS: Chief Olisah Metuh, spokesman of the Prison Development Population PDP has been unanimously elected spokesman for the National Prisoners Association. Both positions will run concurrently. Metuh dedicates this feat and award to EFCC, the Nigerian masses and International community. He will soon join Dasuki as a Fellow of the prisons investiture and IDP North East Insecurity Committee. Meanwhile APC is afraid of Metuh using his vast experience in looting to emerge as Vice President in 2019 which has been zoned to the East.

    • Burbank

      LOLz…gbam

    • Bakanridi

      Hahaha.What a new port folio the faulted mouthpiece of Prison Development Population PDP. So Oga Metuh is interested in becoming the VP for Dasuki?Chei DIARIS GOD OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

  • eclub

    I warned Metuh.
    Play dirty.

    PDP play dirty.

    Get even.

    NOW.

    • Burbank

      “I warned Metuh.”

      Too late.

  • FreeNigeria

    Now he can be their spokesman from Kirikiri. I bet nobody is stealing our commonwealth now. All you hear people say, “money nor dey town- money nor dey town” Hahahahahahaha

    • Olu from South Africa

      Lol!

    • Bakanridi

      AAAAA beni!

  • Say the truth

    This won’t work at all. Every attempt to intimidate, blackmail and silence the opposition will be vehemently resisted. Nothing must happen to Metuh. Buhari will surely regret this particular move. #We Say No To One Party#. We need a vigorous opposition to keep APC on its toes.

    • Burbank

      And we need a very effective and firm government to ensure those criminals are punished punitively.
      God bless Buhari
      God bless Nigeria.

      • Bakanridi

        God bless you my brother for your love to your beloved country.

        • Burbank

          God bless you and your family too.

    • Bakanridi

      Who are the opposition? Did the wake up from their slumber and accept their new position in the new disposition? To me these guys are afraid of vomiting what they have squandered at the expense of the POOR NORTH EASTERNERS.

  • Burbank

    Metuh just found out that the era where criminals roamed free with impunity in Nigeria is over.

    FFK and Fayose, yours coming soon.

    • Okafor

      This is what we are saying every member of the opposition is termed corrupt, to silence them. I won’t be surprised next will be Fayose and FFK. Are we not helping Buhari to run a police state? Look at African states like Zimbabwe , Uganda, Equatorial Guinea and Sudan, who are running one- states.

      • Burbank

        A police state – that’s what the West accused Malaysia, Russia, Indonesia and Singapore too.

        And how many political parties in economic powerhouse China?
        One.

  • abodes_124

    They say God drives away the flies for a tail less cow. Nigeria has been here before when it looked as if it was all darkness and there was no salvation in sight but then salvation came in ways unexpected. Once by the hands of friendly colleagues the other by the hand of an Egyptian seductress….. Let us not loose hope.

  • True Nigerian

    Metu’s spokesman claimed that his oga was only given a “friendly invite”, and that he was not arrested. Yet, shortly after that he states in the same breath as follows:

    “as at the time of issuing the statement, Mr. Metuh was still being kept at the commission’s headquarters and his lawyers were making frantic efforts to reach him”.

    What a friendly invite! Is Metu’s spokesman as brainless as his oga?

  • ade

    @ IZON Redeemer, you are a very good marketer but unfortunately you product is contaminated at production. You cannot claim to know ex president Jonathan than Chief Edwin Clarke.” Jonathan is a weakling and too gentle, prone to very easy manipulations and cannot fight corruption” – quoting Chief Clarke.

  • bjay

    Metuh should even appear in court for corrupt charges because he has lied before with his confession.

  • sammyctu ode

    For sixteen bad years the pdp controlled Nigeria without thinking of diversifying our economy instead their major preoccupation was to steal steal steal and when their criminal elements are being made to account for their sins the only thing they do is to level all sorts of accusations on PMB and its administration. What work does olisa is doing to have huge sums of money in his accounts, does he have manufacturing companies, did his companies pay tax, can jonathan unilaterally award contract to olisa without going through all the due processes set up by FG? THE BOTTOM LINE IS THAT WE HAVE BEEN RULED BY CRIMINALS FOR SIXTEEN YEARS WHO HATED 99% OF NIGERIANS AND WHO DO NOT CARE FOR THE PROGRESS AND DEVELOPMENTAL GOALS OF THIS COUNTRY

  • Bakanridi

    The evils men do live after them. Despite his ranting and publicity seeking seeking,Oga PDP mouthpiece has finally landed in Dasukigate scandal. PDP should allow the courts to decide whether he is found wanting or not? How can somebody claiming never work for any government ended up with a billion Naira arms funds traced to his company? WONDERS SHALL NEVER END. The more you see the less you understand.

  • Oh!

    We can’t help but laugh when we here people talk about silencing the opposition. What does the opposition want to say that some do not want to hear. Have we forgotten that the opposition was the ruling party that just lost the election.
    What do they want to say now that they did not say then?

    If their mouth was so powerful and holy, how come they lost the election. Why did the mouth not help them win.Is this not the same mouth going up and down, lying left and right. The same mouth that disgraced Nigeria by lying that GEJ spoke with the king of Morocco?

    The opposition has nothing important or ground-breaking to say and the only reason why we can imagine anyone would want to silence them is the FACT that they make sh*t up!……and not just that. Even after they realize their crap did not stick, the continue to repeating it until (like the buzzing of a mosquito near your ear) you just have to slap the away.

    Silence the opposition???…………..the opposition should do us all a favor and silence itself!
