The National Publicity Secretary of the People's Democratic Party (PDP), Olisa Metuh, today, February 4, appeared in court exactly one week after he was released from Kuje Prison.

He had been detained for his alleged involvement in the $2.1million arms funds meant for the procurement of arsenals for the military for the fight against Boko Haram, but was allegedly looted by the former National Security Adviser (NSA), Sambo Dasuki and others.

In January while still in detention, he appeared at a federal high court in Abuja three times in handcuffs, and fully bearded. He regained freedom on January 28.

However, Abba Dabo, the former special adviser on political matters to former Vice President Namadi Sambo, has claimed that Metuh gave him N25m to fight criticisms in the traditional and in the social media against former President Goodluck Jonathan. But he voluntarily took it to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC)  after discovering that the money was linked to the controversial arms deal.
