Ibrahim Magu

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) says the continued detention of the spokesperson of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is due to his unwillingness to admit guilt and return the ‘over N400 million’ he allegedly received from embattled former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki just like the chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Jafaru Isa who was released.

According to the Acting Chairman of the EFCC, Ibrahim Magu, there is no truth in claims that the anti-corruption crusade was a witchhunt of leaders of the opposition PDP.

Magu claimed that Mr. Isa had begun the process of refunding the money in his possession while Mr. Metuh had refused to do same.

“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,” Mr. Magu said during a meeting with online media publishers in Lagos,” Magu said.

“Also Jafaru Isa, what Dasuki gave him was N170 million. He also agreed…of course he has collected that money, he was with us for 4-5 days and then he made a deposit of N100 million and entered an undertaking to bring the rest. That does not mean we will not prosecute him.”

“But this other Metuh, instead of going for a refund, he has admitted he collected money…. Instead of returning the money, he preferred to go on strike,”‎ Magu said.

Isa, a former military governor of Kaduna State, was arrested last Wednesday by EFCC operatives for allegedly receiving N170 million from the Dasuki.

Mr. Metuh, the Spokesperson of the PDP, has been in EFCC custody since January 5‎.
