My Detention, Multiple Persecutions Politically Motivated-Metuh



Olisa Metuh

Olisa Metuh, a former Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has stated that his detention was meant to suppress the opposition party.

Metuh also stated that he had no regrets about being the spokesman of the main opposition party, adding that despite his ordeal and travails, he would not fail in his patriotic duty to the nation.

He reportedly stated this while during a question and answer session with journalists who visited him at his residence in Abuja on Wednesday, February 17.

He said it has since become clear that his arrest, detention, court case, media trial, and multiple persecutions were all politically motivated to suppress the opposition.

Metuh stressed that his press statements and other activities as the National Publicity Secretary of the PDP were geared towards cautioning on wrong policies as well as proffering alternative ideas for the progress of the nation.

Metuh said: “It is clear that my travails and ordeals were politically motivated to suppress the voice of the opposition, which I represented then, but I don’t regret anything I did as opposition spokesperson.

“All I did was in line with my patriotic duty in defending democracy and its tenets which were being assaulted; alerting the nation and cautioning on wrong policies while providing alternative ideas that would help move our nation forward.”
