Olisa Metuh, a former spokesman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), says his bank accounts have been frozen by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

He is facing a seven-count of‎ criminal breach of trust and money laundering to the tune of N400 million.

At the Abuja federal high court on Tuesday, Metuh said he could no longer feed his family because of the restriction placed on his account by the anti-graft agency.

He said he does not know how he would cater for his family and also lacked means to buy Panadol.

“They seized all my accounts in every bank in this country. As I am don’t have money to buy Panadol or water to drink,” he said.

“They have alleged in this case that N400m was stolen. Why would they not limit it to that amount? I don’t know how I am going to feed my family? I don’t have access to any money at all.

“I am ready to end this case and submit myself to the judgment of this court. I am in total shock as I am here talking to you.”

Okon Abang, the judge, asked Onyechi Ikpeazu, Metuh’s counsel, to discuss the issue with Sylvanus Tahir, prosecution lawyer.
