Detained National Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party, Olisa Metuh has said that he will only disclose the details of the N400 million he received from former President Goodluck Jonathan in an open court where his statement will not be distorted.
The PDP Chieftain in a statement by his Special Assistant Mr. Richard Ihediwa insisted he has freely co operated with Economic and Financial Crimes Commission so far although when asked to sign his statement, he tore the document into pieces.
The statement read “This office wishes to state categorically that Chief Metuh has fully cooperated with investigators within his constitutionally guaranteed rights.
“In exercise of his rights, he has since given his statement to the EFCC wherein he submitted that he received the sum of N400m from the former President for an assignment, which he executed to the satisfaction of the former President.
“In further exercise of his rights, Metuh has also indicated his readiness to make public the nature of this assignment, but only in an open court in line with the laws of the land, and where his statement would not be distorted by anybody.
“Metuh, therefore, believes that his continued incarceration and failure to charge him to court are deliberately intended to prevent him from telling his own story in the open court for all Nigerians to know.”
