The national publicity secretary of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Olisa Metuh, has been released from Kuje Prison. And he is still wearing his beard.

Metuh regained freedom on Thursday after meeting bail conditions set by Justice Okon Abang of Federal High Court, Abuja.

He is standing trial for allegedly collecting N400 million meant for arms procurement from former national security adviser, Sambo Dasuki.

He was originally granted bail on January 19 but remained in prison custody due to his inability to meet the terms of his bail.

Justice Abang, however, on Wednesday reduced the bail conditions, which enabled the PDP spokesman to be able to post bail.
