Metuh to EFCC: I can’t feed my family again, unfreeze my accounts

PDP’s former spokesman, Olisa Metuh, told a Federal High Court in Abuja, yesterday, that he could no longer feed his family because his bank accounts have been frozen by EFCC.
.
.
Metuh said he learnt early yesterday that no debit order was placed on his accounts on Monday night, when he tried unsuccessfully to make a transaction in one of the accounts.
.
.
The ex-PDP spokesman spoke while testifying at the resumed hearing in his trail. Metuh is being tried, with his company, Destra Investment, on charges of money laundering.

.
Metuh, who is testifying as his own witness, said the freezing of his accounts has made it difficult for him to either feed his family or buy items as common as water and pain-reliving medicine like Panadol.
.
.
Metuh associated the freezing of his accounts with his ongoing trial, in which he is accused of unlawfully receiving N400 million from the Office of the National Security Adviser (ONSA) in 2014.
.
.
He queried why the EFCC would freeze his accounts, having allegedly seized his assets earlier. Metuh said what the EFCC earlier seized included assets with the Asset and Resource Management Company Limited and his funds in other banks.
.
.
He said the action of the EFCC has denied him access to his funds worth more than the amount at stake in the trial. Metuh noted: “They have alleged in this case that N400 million was stolen. Why would they not limit it to that amount?
.
.
I don’t know how I am going to feed my family? I don’t have access to any money at all. I am ready to end this case and submit myself to the judgment of this court.” –
