Dasukigate: Petition Against Jonathan Genuine, Ex-Enugu Lawmaker Replies Metuh

Sambo Dasuki-Goodluck JonathanA former member of the Enugu State House of Assembly, Engr. Ikenna Ejezie, has debunked the claims by erstwhile national publicity secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Olisa Metuh that a petition he (Ejezie) wrote to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, seeking ex-President Goodluck Jonathan’s probe was a hoax.
Ejezie had through his counsel, Ugochukwu Osuagwu, petitioned the EFCC, asking it to within seven days, invite and question the former president for allegedly authorizing the disbursements of $2.1bn arms funds as claimed by Metuh and the former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki in their ongoing trial.
The former PDP spokesman had while reacting to the said petition through his lawyer Ben Nwosu, said no such former member of the Enugu Assembly exists and that it was a ploy to sway the public and the judiciary against him (Metuh).
However, in a counter-response yesterday, Osuagwu said the letter was sent by a living former lawmaker who had distinguished himself as a civil society activist.
The lawyer drew attention to a suit won by Ejezie against the EFCC before Justice Gabriel Kolawole of an Abuja Federal High Court in 2013 under the Freedom of Information (FOI) Act demanding the disclosure of the total number of cases, legal fees and financial allocations to the anti-graft agency between 2003 and 2012.
