OLISA METUH 
ABUJA, NIGERIA - Justice Okon Abang of a Federal High Court sitting in Abuja, Nigeria, today declared that the former National Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Olisa Metuh is guilty of laundering a sum to the time of N400 million.

The judge arrived at the decision while delivering judgement in the suit instituted against him by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

It would be recalled that the EFCC had charged Metuh, who is standing trial alongside his company, Destra investment, with seven counts which had to do with criminal diversion of the money received from the office of the former National Security Adviser (NSA), Colonel Sambo Dasuki (rtd).

In handing down his judgment, Justice Okon Abang who specifically convicted Olisa Metuh of count one of the charges said: “It is my view that Metuh took possession of the N400 million from the office of the NSA without contractual agreement; he is guilty of money laundering and is hereby convicted on count one.”
