Metuh afraid of arrest, refuses to show Daura’s APC Card

The National Publicity Secretary of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Chief Olisah Metuh has raised alarm over a plot by the All Progressives Congress, APC, intended to end up in his arrest.

This was in response to calls made by the APC for him to provide the APC membership card of the newly appointed Director of Department of State Security Service, DSS, Daura Lawal.

Metuh made this shocking revelation, Friday, during an interactive session on African Independent Television, AIT, maintained that Daura was sympathetic to the ruling APC, and had within 48 hours of his appointment, invaded houses, clamped down on the opposition and recklessly intimidating electoral officers to implicate the PDP.

The shocking pictorial evidence produced by the PDP on Thursday to giving credence to the allegation that Daura was a member of the APC made the party throw up an open challenge requesting Metuh to produce his (Daura’s) APC membership card as evidence.

The National Publicity Secretary of the APC, Lai Mohammed earlier denied that Daura did not have any link with the party, Friday, shifted ground asking Metuh to produce the membership card of the DSS boss.

Metuh in response stated that he cannot confront the DSS boss who has a penchant for arresting oppositions.

    “How can Lai Mohammed tell me to produce the APC membership card of Lawal Daura, Do you want me to be arrested and detained?

    “This is a man given the marching order to clampdown on opposition.

    “Do you know that within 48 hours of his appointment, he invaded houses and detained people indiscriminately without due process?

    “You want me to get the card of a man who is locking people up; does the APC want Daura to detain me?” Metuh who almost lost his emotion said.

He added; “we are heading back to banana republic, the APC is taking us back to Zimbabwe and Libya, this cannot be accepted.

    “This democracy has been preserved by the PDP in the last sixteen years.”

He explained that Lai Mohammed was a disgrace to the entire political community.

Metuh warned Lai Mohammed to stop attacking his personality but rather focus on issues that are on ground.
