Former National Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Chief Olisa Metuh, has appealed to those accusing him of being one of the sponsors of the dare-devil militant group, Niger Delta Avengers, NDA, to leave him alone, urging the President Muhammadu Buhari-led Federal Government and security agencies to immediately investigate and arrest Cynthia Whyte, who purportedly circulated the report.
Metuh in a statement on Sunday, said: “My attention has been drawn to a false and misleading report circulating in a section of the media, heinously listing my name as one of the sympathizers of the Niger-Delta Avengers.
“Indeed, I believe this is a wicked, cruel and devilish plot to link me with such activities and at this very time, especially as the claim is outrightly false.
“For the avoidance of doubt, I hereby state categorically that I do not have any relationship or association whatsoever either as a sympathizer or sponsor of any militant group, including the Avengers.
“While I restate my decision not to be drawn into any controversy at this time, it is pertinent that I reiterate that my only preoccupation now remains matters concerning my health and extant court trial as I continue to conduct my affairs with dignity and single-mindedness.
“Finally, I call on the Federal Government and security agencies to immediately investigate and arrest Cynthia Whyte, who purportedly circulated the report and ensure that they get to the root of this matter. This is a security issue and nobody should be allowed to play politics with it.”
