Metuh goes to court to challenge his detention

11 January 2016, 20:44

Lagos - The National Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Olisa Metuh has approached a  Federal High Court in Lagos to challenge his continued detention by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), reports NewsDay.

He has asked the court to order his release from the EFCC custody.

In an application filed on his behalf by his lawyer, Ebun-Olu Adegboruwa, Metuh said his continued detention without charge is illegal.

Adegboruwa, in the suit numbered FHC/L/CS/21/2016, alleged that Metuh’s family, lawyers and doctors were denied access to him.

He urged the court to order the EFCC and the Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami (SAN), sued as the 2nd defendant to immediately release Metuh.

The suit is yet to be assigned to any judge and a hearing date is yet to be fixed.

Metuh was arrested by EFCC operatives on January 5 in his Abuja home in connection with the $2.1 billion arms deal.
