Metuh tore unsigned statement during interrogation, witness tells court



A witness in the trial of Olisa Metuh, of former spokesperson of the Peoples Democratic Party, has told an Abuja High Court that Mr. Metuh’s ‘torn’ statement was not signed.

Mr. Metuh is facing a two-count charge for allegedly tearing his statement.
The EFCC alleged that Mr. Metuh tore the statement when it was brought for his endorsement.

The commission had also alleged that the PDP spokesperson attempted to chew the statement.
The trial continued on Monday, after months of adjournment following the vacation of the judiciary.

The first prosecution witness, an investigative officer with the commission, said Mr. Metuh tore the third page of his statement which was not signed, but added that the defendant had earlier signed the first two pages, which were mot tampered with.
He added that Mr. Metuh did not chew the said statement.
Another witness, Ibrahim Musa, also told the court that Mr. Metuh demanded for sheets of paper to continue with the statement after tearing the third page.

The prosecution closed its case at the end of the session.
Mr. Metuh is also facing separate trial at an Abuja Federal High Court for allegedly diverting N400 million, part of funds meant for the purchase of arms from the office of the former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki.
