Olisa Metuh Locked Up With 419 Guys In Prison

There are indications that the Peoples Democratic Party spokesman, Olisa Metuh, is being kept in a prison cell where financial scammers and some bad boys who had committed frauds were being held.

Nigerian Prison authorities usually isolate high profile inmates from other criminals who had committed violent offences like armed robbery, murder and other heinous crimes.
The prison officers are said to be keeping a tight watch over Metuh to prevent any foul play...

It was learnt that Metuh, who was remanded at Kuje Prisons, Abuja on the order of a Federal High Court, was isolated from other awaiting trial inmates to protect him from being harmed.
It was gathered that the prison authorities were following the standard laid down protocol in Metuh’s case by shielding him from violent inmates who could attack him at night.

The source explained that Metuh had not been eating prison food, adding that he had made arrangement for his feeding, which he said was allowed.

A source said, “The prisons service has a standard procedure they follow when it comes to high profile inmates or VIP detainees as you call them. One, we don’t allow them to mix with other inmates for safety reason. Secondly, we don’t keep them in crowded cells, but they are kept with those who may have committed a similar offence or offences.

“In Metuh’s case, we are observing the same protocol; he is being held in a cell where people who had committed similar offences were being kept, that is, those who did not commit violent crimes and we are keeping a serious watch over him to prevent any foul play.”

When Punch asked if the prison service was giving Metuh special treatment, the Public Relations Officer, Francis Enobore, said all inmates were treated fairly and equally, stressing that “there is no VIP treatment for anyone in prison custody.”
