Former National Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Olisa Metuh has raised the alarm over an assassination attempt on him.
The PDP Chieftain disclosed that some armed men last night broke into his residence in Prince and Princess Estate in Abuja, tied up his security guards and demanded he be called out.
In a statement issued in Abuja on Wednesday by his media aide, Richard Ihediwa, the embattled PDP former spokesperson disclosed that the armed men destroyed a section of his fence.
The PDP Chieftain who is currently facing trial for allegedly collecting the sum of N400m from former National Security Adviser, NSA, Col Sambo Dasuki(rtd) said, “They tied up security guards and a driver at the premises and attempted to gain access to the main building, but could not due to the security doors at the front and back entrances of the main house.
“When they could not gain access into the main building, they beat up the security guards and ordered them at gunpoint to call out Chief Metuh using their phones, but the guards insisted he was not at home but had travelled to the east.
“Out of frustration, the invaders broke into other buildings in the premises including Chief Metuh’s out office where they carted away some documents and electronic equipment.
“Their escape route trailed with blood as one of the armed men got injured in the course of their breaking through the spiked security fence.
“Already, a shocked Chief Metuh had made an official report to the police to unravel those behind the attack and intention manifested in the incidence. Chief Metuh’s guards and driver are already assisting the police in their investigation.”
