The Nigeria Prisons Service has explained why they handcuffed the National Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party, Chief Olisa Metuh while appearing for his trial at the Federal High Court in Abuja on Tuesday

The NPS spokesman, Francis Enobore, said the officer in charge of the escort that took Metuh to court was at liberty to determine if the inmate should be handcuffed based on security situation, the environment and intelligence report made available to him.

“If you suspect that the atmosphere, security-wise, may not be conducive to the inmates in your custody, you can use handcuffs; to avoid a situation where you have to start telling stories, you use your discretion to study the environment and take appropriate measures to ensure the safety of the inmates in your custody.

Enebore, speaking with PUNCH said: “we not only try to secure the inmate from escaping, we equally provide protection for the inmate. The officer in-charge must ensure that the life of the inmate is not jeopardised. It is the officer in-charge of the escort that studies the security environment and takes the decision to use handcuffs”.

He came to that conclusion form various physiological, psychological and analytical tests carried out on Metuh while he was in custody :D

Just tell us it was an order from the ogas at the top so as to shame the opposition.

This officer in charge is beating around the bush!
Metuh is an arrogant thug who deserves to be treated as such, period!
The guys was a lawyer by profession and he failed to think chewing up his statement may fetch him another 7 count charge, which law school did this man attend? They should ask Metuh to bring back the cert given to him, not to forget our 4oo million also.

The queue for the return of certificates is long and endless. Let us not forget the queue for the production of authentic certificates as well :)

I expect your response, sir, @curator. Infact, I am smiling. Long time. Was it a fable that he tore and attempted to (chew?) destroy the statement he wrote?
So it is a punishment for his behaviour in custody. Then they should just say so and no one will be concerned.

I don't know why some people are just talking nonsense about he olisah metuh being taken to court handcuf,is he not a human being like I and You...
 
What is wrong with us? Are there different rules for different individuals and personalities because of their status? Why was the handcuff designed? To keep suspects in custody until proven guilty of course! so why should the police explain why they handcuffed the suspect?

They don't have to explain. They chose to explain.
