Former PDP National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh, is also mentioned for allegedly collecting N1.4 billion also from the office of the NSA and the Chairman of DAAR Communications, Dr Raymond Dokpesi, is also mentioned for allegedly taking N2.1 billion from the office of the NSA too.

Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed, had on Friday released a list containing the names of alleged looters.

"They are in court and the records are available".

"On whether it was right for the Federal Government to have named persons whose corruption cases were already in court, it is an issue that was neither "here nor there".

According to the opposition party, the list is an extension of federal government media trial.

"It's like a robber admitting to stealing your auto and apologizing, but then saying he will keep the vehicle anyway".

Mr Uche Secondus, has challenged the Minister of Culture and Information Alhaji Lai Mohammed to be ready to prove his allegation that the he collected N200m from the purse of the National Security Adviser (NSA).

He further stated that the APC-led government will not stop talking about the alleged looting of the PDP.

Mohammed clarified that the "treasury looters" were individuals who were officials in the past government.

"It is unfortunate that the APC and its government under whose watch horrendous sleazes are happening on daily basis and a government that has failed to fulfill the littlest of its campaign promises, can spend a wholesome three years searching for flimsy allegations to discredit our party and its members".

"We hope that PDP will follow the bold example of the former Senator and confess to their other sins against Nigeria", the APC spokesman stressed.

"What is important for the Federal Government to make Nigerians think it is serious about anti-corruption war is if it looks inwards and names those accused of corruption, who defected from the PDP to the APC", the group statement read.
