The national leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party has said that it will not provide sureties or Bail out its National Publicity Secretary, Chief Olisa Metuh.
The party said since Metuh was being prosecuted for offenses that have nothing to do with it, its embattled spokesperson should look for those who would stand as sureties for him.
Metuh is currently being held in Kuje prisons pending when he can fulfill his two separate bail conditions of 600m for allegedly tearing up his EFCC statement and N400m for his initial corruption and money laundering charge.. This brings it up to N1billion and four sureties..

“Metuh didn’t represent the party in the alleged crimes he’s being prosecuted. The party didn’t benefit from the alleged crime.“So, he is going to look for sureties himself. We won’t be involved. He would carry his own cross alone, without the party being involved.”
However, the National Legal Adviser of the party, Mr. Victor Kwon, said friends and associates Metuh were “doing everything possible to get the sureties” as demanded by the courts.
