Olisah Metuh: ‘I am very sick and can’t feed my family’ – Ex-PDP spokesman begs EFCC to unfreeze accounts

A former spokesman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Olisa Metuh has implored the anti-graft agency to unfreeze his accounts explaining he is in dire financial straits.

Metuh is facing a seven-count of‎ criminal breach of trust and money laundering to the tune of N400 million.

He said this during a hearing at the federal high court in Abuja where he informed the court that he could no longer provide for his family due to the restriction placed on his accounts.

He said he does not know how he would cater for his family and also lacked means to buy Panadol.

“They seized all my accounts in every bank in this country. As I am don’t have money to buy Panadol or water to drink,” he said.

“They have alleged in this case that N400m was stolen. Why would they not limit it to that amount? I don’t know how I am going to feed my family? I don’t have access to any money at all.

“I am ready to end this case and submit myself to the judgment of this court. I am in total shock as I am here talking to you.”

The judge, Okon Abang, instructed the counsel to Metuh, Onyechi Ikpeazu, to discuss a suitable arrangement with Sylvanus Tahir, the prosecution lawyer.
