•Tries to stuff them in his mouth but was stopped by the officials

In what looked like a display of disillusionment, the embattled spokesperson of the Peoples Democratic Party on Tuesday tore a statement he voluntarily made to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission regarding his alleged involvement in the $2.1billion arms fraud being investigated by the anti-graft agency.

When Olisa was presented with the document to sign as part of his prosecution processes, he started tearing the statement on realizing the weight of his confessions in the document. The PDP spokesperson later tried to stuff the papers into his mouth in a bid to swallow them when he was stopped by operatives who managed to recover the torn pieces of papers from him.

A source in the EFCC said the attempt by Mr. Metuh to destroy a major evidence in the case against him was an offence which could attract a separate charge in court because the tearing of statement is tantamount to willful destruction of government property and it is a serious offence.

“Also the fact that he obstructed operatives from performing their job is also a criminal offence. We will explore the possibility of filling a separate charge against him at the Federal Capital Territory High Court.” The source said.
The EFCC is accusing Mr. Metuh of receiving N400 million from a former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki, who is being prosecuted for allegedly mismanaging $2.1billion meant for arms procurement.
