EFCC detectives probing the arms contracts have traced N1.4billion to the account of a company allegedly linked with Metuh.
The EFCC operatives stormed Metuh’s Abuja residence early Tuesday morning demanding that he accompany them to their office.
According to a statement from Metuh’s Special Assistant, Richard Ihediwa, the operatives, four in number, came in a White unmarked Toyota Hiace bus.
Ihediwa said although the EFCC operatives denied Metuh was being arrested, they, however, insisted that he should honour their friendly invitation.
He said his boss was still at the commission’s headquarters while his lawyers were making frantic efforts to reach him.
