But speaking during a meeting with the new council of the Edo state chapter of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ), in Benin on Tuesday, the governor said there was nothing wrong with restraining Metuh. “If those accused of lesser crimes are handcuffed and paraded by the police and get no sympathy from the public, Mr. Metuh and others, accused of diverting huge public funds, should not have sympathy,” Peter Okhiria, his spokesman quoted him as saying.
