Olisa Metuh Must Be Released Within 48 Hours Or Else...

Members of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the House of Representative has demanded the immediate release of their party's National Publicity Secretary, Mr. Olisa Metuh.

With a court order, Metuh has been under detention for more than a week by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) for allegedly collecting N400million from the $2.1 billion meant for the purchase of arms to fight Boko Haram, which the commission is investigating.

But while addressing a press conference in Abuja, the PDP Reps led by their leader, Leo Ogor, said
Metuh's continued detention is a breach of the rule of law and demanded that the EFCC should either release him on administrative bail within the next 48 hours or take him to a "competent court of law."

Hon. Ogor said failure to do so would leave them with no option than to follow all democratic processes on the matter, including going international, if need be.
Funny enough, EFCC was not just keeping Metuh, the agency obtained a Magistrate court order to do so.
