Ogor said failure to do so would leave them with no option than to follow all democratic processes on the matter, including going international if need be.

Members of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the House of Representatives on Tuesday demanded the release of the party’s National Publicity Secretary Olisa Metuh.

Metuh has been under detention for more than a week by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) for allegedly collecting N400 million from the $2.1 billion meant for the purchase of arms to fight Boko Haram, which the commission is investigating.

Addressing a press conference in Abuja on Tuesday, the PDP Reps led by their leader Leo Ogor said Metuh’s continued detention was a breach of the rule of law and demanded that the EFCC should either release him on administrative bail within the next 48 hours or take him to a “competent court of law.”

Ogor said failure to do so would leave them with no option than to follow all democratic processes on the matter, including going international if need be.
