PDP governors condemn handcuffing of Metuh

22 January 2016, 15:07

Abuja - The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governors have condemned the handcuffing of the party’s spokesperson, Olisa Metuh during his appearances in court, reports The Nation.

Deploring the action, the governors said the All Progressives Congress (APC)-led administration was a step away from full-blown fascism.

The governors in a statement signed by the Coordinator of the PDP Governors Forum, Osaro Onaiwu, said the action was meant to deride Metuh and the PDP as well as to cast the party in a bad light before Nigerians as a party of corrupt individuals even when they were yet to be convicted by any competent court.

The governors regretted that the APC regime was yet to learn from history, judging by what they described as its “banal exhibitionism and Telemundo antics” of subjecting accused persons like Metuh to inhuman treatment.

Metuh, who is standing trial for collecting N400 million from the former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki, was brought to court on Tuesday and Thursday in handcuff.
