DETAINED spokesman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Olisa Metuh, has denied tearing his confessional papers and attempting to swallow them after interrogation by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
According to a report, on Monday, Metuh made the denial when he was reached at the weekend by some members of the PDP in Kuje Prison, Abuja, where he is currently being remanded on the orders of the court.
It said the PDP National Publicity described the report as propaganda, saying that the last time he saw his interrogators was the second day after they picked him up from his residence.
It also said Metuh did not want to speak more on the matter because it was already in court but urged his visitors to inform Nigerians that he did not do what he had been reported to have done.
He was quoted as saying: “They said I ate paper. I did not eat any paper. I don’t know where they got that from. As a matter of fact, the last contact I had with those people was the next day after I was arrested when I told them to charge me to court.”
