National Publicity Secretary of the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP), Olisa Metuh, will be re-arraigned on Friday before the High Court of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) on an amended charge by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
Metuh was in January this year arraigned on a two-count charge for destroying a portion of the statement he wrote before the EFCC while he was being questioned for his alleged involvement in the diversion of arms procurement funds during the last administration.
The EFCC on Thursday served the PDP spokesman with an amended version of the charge before the FCT High Court.
The charge contains an additional count of “obstruction of officers of EFCC in the performance of their statutory duties.”
According to the EFCC, Metuh, by this act, has contravened the provision of Second 38(2) of EFCC Establishment Act.
