Metuh further averred that he was terrified on the action of the EFCC, adding that: “I do not know where to get my next meal from’’.

“The EFCC went ahead to freeze all my accounts yesterday and I cannot get any money to feed myself and my family. I do not even know how I am going to exist from now on.

“As it stands now, I cannot access both my Naira and Dollar accounts so I do not even have money to buy pain relief if I have a headache or even water to sustain my family’’, he said.

Justice Okon Abang therefore instructed Metuh’s counsel to discuss with the counsel representing the Federal Government, Mr Sylvanus Tahir to resolve the issue.
