Meanwhile, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, yesterday said that the continued detention of the spokesperson of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, is due to his unwillingness to admit and return the ‘over N400 million’ he allegedly received from embattled former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki.
Ibrahim Magu, the Acting Chairman of the EFCC, denied claims it was on a witch-hunt of leaders of the opposition PDP after its continued detention of Metuh and release of Jafaru Isa, an All Progressives Congress chieftain.
Magu claimed that Mr. Isa had begun the process of refunding the money in his possession while Mr. Metuh had refused to do so.
“From the records, Metuh got over N400 million, he has not said anything because we need the public money to be returned so that it will be used for public good,” Mr. Magu said during a meeting with online media publishers in Lagos.
“Also Jafaru Isa, what Dasuki gave him was N170 million. He also agreed…of course he has collected that money, he was with us for 4-5 days and then he made a deposit of N100 million and entered an undertaking to bring the rest. That does not mean we will not prosecute him.
“But this other Metuh, instead of going for a refund, he has admitted he collected money…Instead of returning the money, he preferred to go on strike.”‎
Mr. Isa, a former military governor of Kaduna State, was arrested last Wednesday by EFCC operatives for allegedly receiving N170 million from Dasuki.
Mr. Metuh, the Spokesperson of the PDP, has been in EFCC custody since January 5‎.
The EFCC boss insisted the Commission is not selective in its anti-corruption war‎, noting that only people involved in “some certain action or inaction of corruption” are being invited for questioning.
“Nobody who is not corrupt, who is not involved, is with us,” he said.

    OF COURSE NOT, WELL SAID EFCC, WELL SAID BUHARI.

    THE BIG MOUTH LOOTER, METUH, MUST BE KEPT IN THE KUJE CELL UNTIL HE RETURNED ALL THE LOOT OF 1.4 BILLION NAIRA HE STOLE AND TRACED TO HIS ACCOUNT WITHOUT ANY CONCESSIONS AND WITH MATCHING JAIL SENTENCE. DO NOT FORGET, THESE ARE HIGH PROFILE, BIG-MOUTH, FINANCIAL CRIMINALS.

    EFCC AND MR BUHARI, MORE GREASE TO YOUR ANTI- CORRUPTION SQUAD
