The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)’s National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh, has reportedly vowed that he would rather go on hunger strike than return the huge sum of 400 million naira he collected from former the protracted Sambo Dasuki’s arms procurement fraud.
The money was expected to be part of the $2.1 billion arms deal fund which was looted under the former NSA boss’s supervision.
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), arrested Metuh on January 5, 2016, and is still in the custody of the agency.
The PDP spokesman is said to have refused to cooperate and instead went on hunger strike.
This was revealed by EFCC Chairman, Ibrahim Magu during a meeting with online media publishers in Lagos on Monday, January 11.
“From the records, Metuh got over N400 million, he has not said anything because we need the public money to be returned so that it’s going to be used for public good,” Magu said.
“…Instead of going for a refund, he has admitted he collected money…. so instead of… he still has the money because the money is too much. Instead of returning the money, he preferred to go on strike,” he added.
