The National Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party, Chief Olisa Metuh, has torn a confessional statement he made to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, a top operative of the commission has said.
The top officer of the commission, who confided in one of our correspondents on Tuesday, alleged that Metuh tore the statement when it was brought to him for his signature.
The source alleged that the PDP spokesman tore the statement he had earlier made to shreds and attempted to put the pieces in his mouth when operatives stopped him.
Metuh was arrested by the EFCC last week for allegedly receiving N1.4bn meant for the purchase of arms from a former National Security Adviser, Col. Sambo Dasuki (retd.).
The source said the interrogators believed that the PDP spokesman destroyed the statement after realising the gravity of the evidence against him.
The top operative added that the commission was considering filing additional charges against Metuh for allegedly destroying a major evidence in the case against him.
He added that the action of the PDP spokesman amounted to a wilful damage of government property.
