DasukiGate: Jafaru Isa’s release proves Buhari on a witch hunt – PDP

Sambo Dasuki, former National Security Adviser, Nigeria

The Peoples Democratic party, PDP, says the release of the associate of President Muhammadu Buhari and APC chieftain, Jafaru Isa, by the EFCC barely eight hours after arrest while its spokesperson, Olisa Metuh, remains detained and without being charged to court since last Tuesday, vindicates its position that the Federal Government is not fighting corruption but on a clamp-down mission on PDP leaders.

The party said that its spokesperson, who was arrested without invitation by the anti-graft agency, has remained incarcerated since Tuesday while the APC chieftain who even disregarded the commission’s invitation and had to be arrested was quickly released after the EFCC boss’ meeting at the Presidential villa.

The PDP in a statement signed by the National Legal Adviser, Victor Kwon, on Sunday said there can be no clearer indication that the APC-led administration is on a man-hunt against PDP leaders, and that it has a personal grudge against Mr. Metuh, ostensibly for his stance as opposition spokesperson, particularly his recent exchange with the government and the APC over their dictatorial activities.

The party queried the action of the EFCC in freeing Mr. Isa, eight hours after his arrest last Wednesday night while Mr. Metuh is still being detained even when the two are being investigated over the same allegation of receiving funds from the office of the National Security Adviser.

“The release of Jafaru Isa, a known associate of the President and chieftain of the APC eight hours after his arrest while our spokesman remains in detention even when the two are being investigated over same allegation, clearly shows that the President Buhari-led APC government is not fighting corruption but using the much hyped crusade as a cover to persecute PDP leaders and decimate the opposition, a project the EFCC has clearly yielded itself as a willing tool.

“We have information of the marching order from the Presidency for the immediate release of the President’s associate and that his issue is one of the major part reasons for the repeated visits of the EFCC Chairman to the Presidential villa within the period of his arrest. Of course, there is nothing hidden under the sun.

“We ask, how can the EFCC now explain to the world that it is not corrupt and teleguided by the Federal Government to persecute PDP leaders? What happened to the illegal holding charge upon which it has detained the PDP spokesman beyond the limit stipulated by section 35(5a) of the constitution and in violation of his guaranteed personal liberty under the law?

“Are there now two separate sets of laws; one for PDP leaders and perceived foes of the President Buhari-led government which allows them to be detained beyond constitutional limits without being charged to court and another set, for associates of the President associates and APC leaders, which guarantees them a slap in the back and immunity from investigation and prosecution, and if arrested, an immediate release?

“Is it really true that the fund Jafaru Isa was alleged to have received from the former NSA was traced near the corridors of those who today bestride power in the country? Furthermore, can the Federal Government and the APC now in all honesty face the world and announce that this administration is indeed waging war against corruption?

“Can the EFCC explain what has happened to several petitions by Nigerians on corruption issues against many APC leaders including those who as former governor looted funds belonging to their state? Are they now under immunity for the fact that they are in the APC and that most of the funds they looted where used to finance APC’s Presidential campaign?

“While we reiterate our support for any effort aimed at eradicating corruption in our nation we stand our ground in demanding that the fight must be holistic, credible, within the limits provided by the laws irrespective of political affiliations.

“The PDP therefore restates its demand that the EFCC immediately releases its spokesman, Chief Olisa Metuh or charge him to court if they have any case against him. His continued detention without being charged to court is only indicative of the fact that the commission has not been able convince itself of enough evidence of guilt and is now lending itself as a willing instrument of persecution against Chief Metuh.

“The public will recall that the PDP is not given to frivolous claims as evidenced in many instances including our alert last year of a meeting between the Presidency, the then newly appointed INEC Chairman and top security officers just before the Kogi and Bayelsa governorship elections.

“Finally, we state with every sense of responsibility that now that it is clear, with the release of Jafaru Isa eight hours after his arrest, that the continued detention of our spokesman is politically motivated, this party can no longer guarantee that it can rein in its members and supporters who have been exercising restrain since this particular arrest by the EFCC. Nigeria belongs to all of us and the laws are made for all of us and must be applied on its values and spirit without political considerations.

  • Factsay

    Nawa for this Buhari govt

  • Timothy Aseer

    Who is fooling who? Only zombies would believe Buhari would probe APC members.
    Buhari rewarded Mr Corruption (Amaechi) with ministerial position instead of probing him. Ambode told us how Fashola bled Lagos dry yet he got a portfolio, this story is meant for APC monkeys

    • fishhook

      Without Amaechi’s boldness and courage in resisting Goodluck Jonathan and Mama Peace there would have been no Buhar Administration.
      Amaechi is a hero, a very unselfish one at that. What did he get for his effort? Abuses from Nigerians.

      • The Truth

        oya explain to me, about the ambode and fashola issue? so are you admitting to the fact that Amechi stole the money to fight for PMB to enter power???? Does that mean you indirectly supporting him???…… But please you answer i want you to know that i like fashola very well sha, i even wished he was the one that contested for presidency himself

        • fishhook

          I do not support anyone who steals, whether public or private property. A thief is a thief is a thief. But please table the exhibit or the evidence. No wild allegations.

    • ebidou

      Thank you for speaking the truth. He stole Rivers money to fund the APC and they are hailing him. Nonsense!

  • Akinwande Kolawole

    Mr. Buhari is the latest clueless leader to take impunity to impossible levels. He and his party of arrogance and ignorance personified (the APC) .
    Mr. Buhari is arresting people up and down the political landscape because he sees personal enemies everywhere, his anti-Corruption war is a witch-hunt, otherwise many of his ministers would be in jail or elsewhere

    • fishhook

      Boy, are you awake? Set your alarm so that you can keep up with the changes that are coming. If you have documents please create a website and publish away. We need data nowadays not just empty barrels banging away.

  • Ademola Arowosaye

    Anybody that is claiming buhari means well for Nigeria and his fight against corruption is genuine and balanced, and that none of his ministers is corrupt should urge him to tell Nigerians in all sincerity the source of his campaign funds.Maybe PMB should publish the sources of his campaign funds, in true transparency of his anti- corruption stance before the public

    • muazu wali

      That will eventually come. . Have a nice weekend. We are after those in government when money was missing. Our objective is a noble one and so we know we are on the right path.

    • fishhook

      It is up to PDP and other concerned citizens to table facts that indict the APC, not Buhari to indict himself. Get cracking and pass laws to ban the use of public funds in political campaigns. It is part of the growth we need in our democracy.

  • Preye Aganaba

    The truth is that the ‘war against corruption’ has been one sided, it has been only against those in government while this current one was in opposition.

    As brutish as OBJ was, at least he made it appear that his fight against corruption was not only against the opposition but Buhari’s fight has been one sided, as long as you are in APC you can do nothing wrong. This is my honest assessment.

    • fishhook

      EFCC is probing the misuse of a Federal disbursement by the NSA. It was not the APC members that drew down or disbursed the money. Many of the beneficiaries have stated that the money was used for PDP Presidential Election Campaign. In what respect do people allege that the investigation of this matter is one sided? PDP has exonerated itself that no money was paid to party coffers. How has this diversion of public funds become a PDP versus APC matter? Let us be reasonable please, for our own good.

      • item7

        Gbam. Thank you

      • The Truth

        Dude, i will ask you this, why will you arrest the perceived top PDP members that seem like threats to him??? Then why not look into the cases of other APC members with obvious corrupt issues? anyway am not saying that some of those PDP men are not guilty but also some of the APC pple are as well guilty, dont make it one sided and say you are fighting corruption otherwise that means you are corrupt

        • fishhook

          The guilt is not by wish list.
          Nigerians want to see documents. Why are people not using the Freedom of Information Act to source data instead of speculative allegations. Corruption has been turned into Container Business. This must stop.

  • Ifeanyi Chukwujekwu

    This man is just fighting his political opponent with DSS and EFCC, he is not fighting corruption and can never fight corruption bcos he is a very corrupt hausa fulani man, he is very weak to fight corruption, even during his military regime 1983 to 1985 he never fought corruption, he was using tunde idiagbo to witch hunt opponents, that’s y Babangida dethroned him easily without applying much force, a weak president dat decides which court order to obey or not

    • Oh!

      Just as well that his political opponents are corrupt PDP members. So Go ahead mr. President……fight them!

      • ebidou

        Who gave you the right to call anyone corrupt? You are yourself an epitome of corruption. You are hiding under this ridiculous false name. Come out into the open! Oh! my foot!

  • Arabakpura

    Please tell your PDP members to start trouble immediately! Let’s learn some lessons!

  • Gbenga Adebola

    I would have jump into this ship of APC from day because it is party emanate from that part of the region I come from but I refuse to because its presidential candidate, gmb. The reason isn’t far-fetched by now we shouldn’t be talking of to make a “learner” in democratic norm as a president (the experiment and experience of semi-democrat, obj, of 1999 whom we asked to fight corruption but busy fighting his perceived enemies is enough for Nigeria to have move on into what democracy really mean and how it should be played). Oh! Somebody will say but gmb is now a democrat because he had contested 4 times, because he cried the third time, because he is a member of political parties and therefore had learnt a lot. I say nay, he hasn’t learn any democratic norm at all. If not 800 nigerians wouldn’t have died in 2011 by a statement credited to him. If not, he won’t have make a statement that baboons and dogs will be soaked in their blood. If not, he won’t say even if a court competent jurisdiction grant somebody bail, he will still keep him/her under arrest. If not, he will know that there is federal character enshrined in our constitution. If not, there won’t be in fighting within and outside his political party while nigeria economy gasp for breath (education, agriculture, trade and investment, health, power, infrastructure, roads, employment etc in shabby). If not, his anti-corruption czar will have faces of not only the opposition party but his party members too. In all I thank God I am not part of them at least not with this tyrant (some will say he means well for Nigeria. I say yes but ghadaffi also meant well for Libya, abacha meant well for Nigeria, adolf hitler meant well for Germany, even idi-amin meant well for Uganda but their only problem is that they can’t bear criticisms, they can’t bear second opinion, they can’t bear opposition and that is what makes them tyrants)

    • fishhook

      What kind of rambling is this my good friend?

    • Oh!

      are you ok?

      • ebidou

        I ask you the same question. Oh! are you ok?

  • muazu wali

    Ignorance is a disease. When EFCC Invites you you are shown documents related to an investigation concerning your role in whatever they want to establish. From your answers or statement it will be clear the extent of your involvement or none involvement. The longer it takes you to cooperate the briefer your stay with EFCC. We were told that Mentuh began a hunger strike as soon as he entered EFCC offices on the pretext that he will be poisoned.. This means he refused to cooperate and give his side of the story and which was the purpose of the invitation..

    • Oh!

      We doubt he began a hunger strike as soon as he entered EFCC offices. That would mean EFCC presented him with food as soon as he entered their office (A ridiculous notion by any definition!). If it is however true that they gave him food as soon as he entered there office, then we do not blame him. Only mad man will eat such food.

      Anyways, the fact that Metuh went on hunger strike (whenever and for whatever reason) means Metuh has decided that his stay with EFCC will not be a short one! Nobody goes on hunger strike if they expect to be in a place for only 2 days. Even if they did, only a moron would announce it……..but then again, we are talking about Metuh.

      • whales1212

        Hahaha, lol

      • ebidou

        How long did those who poisoned Abiola stay with him? A cup of tea was enough. Obasanjo nko? He was in prison for just a few hours when he was informed not to accept any food when Abacha jailed him. You think you are logical and wise, but you are conceited with the heaviest dose of APC propaganda. Examine your conscience if you have one. You do not make sweeping allegations and hope to get away with it.

    Amaechi ,Fashola ,Fayemi and many APC thieves distributed more monies than Dasuki allegedly did yet they wine and dine with Saint Buhari.While EFCC turns blind eye to several petitions urging them to probe the tenure of these president’s men. Buhari’s and his party hypocrisy is legendary.

  • Okafor Emeka

    In ignoring Nigerians’ rising outrage over Rotimi Amaechi’s $500,000 dinner, General Buhari has lost all credibility in the war against corruption. He now has no moral right to accuse anyone of corruption. Until Mr. Buhari compels Mr. Amaechi to submit himself to appropriate legal scrutiny, he is not waging a war on corruption, but fighting a war of attrition against his sworn enemies. Mr. Buhari, why is Rotimi Amaechi still a member of your cabinet? Do you have any standards of probity? Why are you subjecting Nigeria to ridicule? Do the right thing and ask Mr. Amaechi to step down until this serious issue is resolved. Who spends $500,000 on a 3-hour dinner? What did they eat? What should the masses eat, cake

    • fishhook

      How can a dinner cost $500,000? How many people attended the dinner? If it was 1000 people that should be $500 (N75,000 – N100,000) per person. Ridiculous. What Nigerians want see is the evidence. In the case of the allegation made against Gov Fashola on his website cost, it was catalogued and then explained. Let Gov Wike publish the fact sheet. Period. Nigerians want to see documented evidence.

    Anybody who love Metuh should tell him to cooperate or remain in EFCC custody. When u r ask to give explanation on transactions Dat happen in ur acct, u r expected to talk not going on hunger strike. If Metuh want to gain is freedom, tell him to talk or remain in EFCC custody until he’s ready to cooperate.

  • Oh!

    All those saying Buhari is going after his political opponents instead of corruption should take pause, and think.
    Let us agree that Buhari is infact going after his politcal opponents……it just so happens that his political opponents are the criminals in PDP. SO what is your problem? Buhari’s opponents are the corrupt PDP members that ruined the nation and emptied the treasury.
    Why do you people have the notion that Buhari’s political opponents and corrupt actors in government have to be mutually exclusive? We put it to you that they can in fact be one and the same……and very often as we have seen, they are!

    Please grow up.

    How is it that people believe that if one does not provide a statement to the police then the police have a right to detain the person indefinitely.
    Please it is not a citizens duty to prove his innocence it is the police (EFCC) duty to prove his guilt. There is a difference. And until that can be done a citizen has a right to his liberty as an innocent person.
    People should stop acting like mumu cattle!

  • sammyctu ode

    These useless pdp criminals are still talking criminal evil stuffs, they are not even ashamed of the various diabolical press releases they dish out. What kind of people are they, i keep asking myself that are these lower animals who call themselves pdp members are they really human beings, do they think at all? They stole Nigeria blind for sixteen years especially the last six and a half years of the evil jonathan administration, they directly killed thousands of Nigerians in the NE, through their evil actions they invented criminal activities like high increase of rape, kidnappings, some useless security forces under their watch became armed robbers and they brought shame to all of us still they keep on talking that PMB is witch hunting criminals who stole our collective trillions meant for developmental progress of the country. They are really insane and evil, without conscience and a bunch of heartless animals. If they think majority of Nigerians are listening to their rantings they must be mistaken because they do not matter in Nigeria anymore. NEVER WILL THESE pdp CRIMINALS RULE NIGERIA AND A LOT OF US PRAY THAT MOST OF THEM WILL ROT IN JAIL FOR THE REST OF THEIR MISERABLE LIFE.

  • blow fissh

    Regarding the interrogation of Gen. Isa, the source added: “He admitted collecting money from ONSA and he has refunded 60 per cent of the sum credited to him. I think it should be about N100 million.

    “Isa is the only person who has so far refunded money among the political figures who collected funds from ONSA. We have granted him bail to allow him time to source for the balance.”

    On the detention of the National Publicity Secretary of PDP, the source said: “So far, Metuh has admitted the transfer of N400 million by ONSA into a company in which he has substantial interest.

    “It is left to him to justify why he deserved such benefit from arms cash. We are still questioning him on other remittances into the company’s account. We are also demanding how he will refund the cash.

There’s no reason whatsoever for the EFCC to hold Metuh hostage for days & then release a member of their party because, according to them, he returned a certain amount of money. Absolute Trash IMO.

    The accusation by the PDP about the ant-graft agency been teleguilded seems true with the immediate release of JAFARU ISA an associate of the president and a chieftain of the ruling party.,The question that crops up is WHY RELEASE JAFARU ISA AND STILL HOLD OLISA METUH HOSTAGE?today marks the 6th day the PDP spokeperson has spent in detention by the anti-graft agency, with no real reason to charge him to court,while the associate of the president was release 8hours after he initially refused honouring the invitation by the anti-corruption agencY

    its still double standard why accuse him of collectiong 1.4billion from the arms deal and later say its 400million…that is just technicality working,if as claimed, IF METUH IS GUILTY CHARGE HIM TO COURT,NOT HOLDING HIM IN DETENTION FOR 6DAYS,WHEN AN ASSOCAITE OF THE PRESIDENT AND APC CHIEFTAIN HAS BN RELEASE 8HOURS AFTER HE WAS FORCEFULLY ARRESTED.Nobody is against just fight against corruption,but from the look of things,it is obviously one-sided

      Dasuki gave Jafaru the money to front as a buyer of that house in Abuja.

    The EFCC are not fighting corruption but fighting PDP

      full stop.

        full steam ahead

      Saraki is PDP?
      Jafaru is PDP?
      Nyako is PDP?
      Kwankwaso is PDP?

      And Buhari is PDP too.

    It makes mockery of common sense to detain people while you are still investigating them, weeks after EFCC made stunts in the media before the arrest. It is an evidence that whatever claims EFCC has against him cannot be proved in the court. So they allowed themselves to become tools for political witch hunt which will backfire soon. Today it was Faleke and Audu son arrested by DSS. Let’s see how the impunity goes.

    This “Operation-Use-Dasuki-Story-To-Divert-Attention-From-How-Very-Terrible-Things-Are-Under-Buhari” won’t work again very soon.
    Rubbish!

    • Oh!

      Exactly how very terrible are things are under Buhari?

      As opposed to what?……..How excellent things were under Jonathan?
      Please go and sit down!

    This whole charade is getting really boring. The economy is dying and a myriad of other problems should be addressed not just this same redundant DasukiGate news… President Buhari’s government has no idea about solving Nigeria’s plethora of ills.
    Nonsense!

    ”APC chieftain, Jafaru Isa, by the EFCC barely eight hours after arrest while its spokesperson, Olisa Metuh, remains detained and without being charged to court since last Tuesday, vindicates its position that the Federal Government is not fighting corruption but on a clamp-down mission on PDP leaders.”

    THIS STATEMENT IS SO TRUE THAT IS WHY WE WILL FIGHT FOR EQUITY AND JUSTICES IN THIS COUNTRY AS WELL AS FAIRNESS IN ALL DEALINGS
    -IS ITS BECAUSE METUH IS IN PDP AND JAFARU IN IN APC THAT HE JAFARU WAS RELEASED

    APC SHOULD ANSWER THIS QUESTION WITH ALL HONESTY …….

    • Oh!

      Where were you and your “fairness fight” when Metuh et al indirectly killed thousands of Nigerians by diverting and sharing funds meant for weapons to protect Nigerians?
      Get your retarded dumb ass outta here!

    When d Price of crude oil was @7 dollars per barrel–OPEC was clueless–It took the courage of Late Col Gaddafi of Libya, murdered by the NATO ati the CIA to raise the price to 21 dollars a barrel—-Buhari swore to increase the price of crude oil—–and FORCE the dollar to be at par with the Naira—But we told Nigerians then that this man BUHARI who could not prepare a simple budget 4 9ja, was lying– A hardcore HYPOCRITE–that he should not be believed–But the traitors led by Obj and Soyinka whom the Ijaws via Amaechi spent 82m to entertain in Rivers state, urged Nigerians like Father Mbaka who is –currently being flown about about in presidential jets–that Buhari was a born again Democrat—Urged 9jas to ignore Ijaw man Jonathan——For d CIA which aided them Apes in APC to impose Buhari on us–Jonathan wld have been der——-Now 9jas are gnashing their rotten teeths–in serious econmic pains-Cause Buhari is busy locking up patriots–like Akpos of NIMASA, Kalu of IPoB and Metuh of PDP—ati Dasuki son of Sultan Dasuki whose father was dethroned by Buhari while with Abacha-Instead of fixing the economy–buhari is busy dancing dan maria goje daily with Remita—Unaware we are sick and tired of the mess in the country———————so why would Buhari not use Dasuki to help beef up his ever dwindling thieving Fulani image–?———————As d search for the chibok girls-slows down –Nothing on d missing 20b dollars they used in demonizing Jonathan—–through Sanusi————————Let my people go———freedom is out goal———-not the rule of the Fulanis ati the Yorubas–who when in power often have the people moaning and mourning in the wilderness for the saviour-in Jonathan————-Animals——-

      “Let my people go”
      And why are you still in the creek; get out, now.

  • Oh!

    It is funny how these individuals start their talks with how much they support a fair anti-corruption crusade by Buhari then proceed (in the same breath) to unequivocally destroy their opening statement.
    They say they want a fair anti corruption war. Let us ask them now. Fair to whom?
    Of course we know what they mean. They want fairness for their allegedly corrupt colleagues!

    Were they fair when they were performing their dastardly acts? Of course not! They have absolutely no concern for the welfare of the millions of Nigerians they have robbed blind!
    When a group of people can take funds meant for the protection of their fellow citizens from an enemy as intractable Boko Haram and share the funds among themselves; then sit back and watch tens of thousands of their fellow citizens die horrible deaths at the hands of the above mentioned enemy, such people have lost the right to even utter the word fair!

    Look at how they are defending Metuh…….the same Metuh who while’ speaking at a one-day workshop on external communication for PDP state
    and zone publicity secretaries at the party’s National Secretariat in
    Abuja’ told the audience that :

    Why PDP is called ‘share the money’ – Metuh “The truth is that the reason why they call the PDP, share the money is
    for us in the party,
    our philosophy, our ideology has always been to
    transfer wealth from the public to the
    private sector………”

    For our less informed friends, Wealth from the public sector is money that is supposed to be used for the benefit of all Nigerians. The private sector is self explanatory (PDP and her friends)

    Why are these folks now shouting “witch hunt” when Metuh has now been implicated in the very thing he claimed they were experts at – namely taking money meant for weapons to protect Nigerians and sharing said money among themselves?

    If you are still in this peoples corner after reading our verifiable comment, you are an enemy to Nigeria and woe betide you!

  • Bayo Ola

    Let all PDpigs, including Olisah Metuh and other yam eaters return all our yams back to the treasury just as Jafar Isa did. Then they can walk out free from detention. The days of blackmail by shouting witchhunting or faking hunger strike are over. Return our yams and walk out of detention!

  • monicaterna4u

    @BAYO OLA so u will admit that jafaru of the APC is even a thieve too, i tort is only saint that APC has, anyway Metuh has told EFCC that he didnt steal any money that the only money he collected was from Jonathan which he help in carrying out the assignment to the letter ,is just the APC memebers in the EFCC that turned the statement to suit their allegation we will not keep quite untill we see that justices is served. am sure that it is not only Jafaru that is the thieve in APC time will really all of them one after the other and i will still not be surprise if they APC hid all their criminal just the way they killed senate presidents bukola’s case with tribuna now jafaru i wonder how long APC will continue to hid all it”s criminals

  • Adeolu

    EFCC will always treat cases on individual basis. We have seen some PDP
    members that were arrested and latter released by EFCC. The cry of witch
    hunting by PDP is not enough to prove their innocence. Witch Hunting
    cry is a ploy to distract EFCC and the public attention from the
    wickedness of people involved. No one is saying that their are no
    corrupt people in APC. They are, as in all other parties, but when they
    are caught they will be brought to book. Nigeria Had been ruled by
    wicked leaders for long a time that it would be hard to find much people
    with no corrupt mind. The best the masses are looking for from
    potential leaders is leaders with hearts of repentance with strong will
    and commitment to better Nigeria. Nigerians have been taken for a ride to long, any unrepentant looter should not be pardoned.

    Isa agreed to collecting money from Dasuki, and immediately refunded N100m with agreement to go source for the N70m. Beside resorting to long gramma, tell me who amongst the thieves has returned the money even after all have agreed to collecting money from Dasuki. For your info Chief Anenih hasn’t been picked up so far following his letter to EFCC on who and who had the money. Falae hasn’t been picked up either. So where is the biase
