BALTIMORE, MD (AFRICAN EXAMINER) – The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has prosecuted the detained National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh over alleged financial crimes.
Metuh who has been in custody of the EFCC since January 5, was charged with seven counts charge, including alleged money laundering. He was accused of collecting the sum of N400m, out of $2.1 Billion arms money from the former National Security Adviser (NSA), to former President Goodluck Jonathan, Col. Dasuki Sambo (rtd).
Metuh had earlier admitted he collected money from Dasuki on the instruction of ex-President Jonathan. However, he had refused to mention the amount he collected and the project he was commissioned to execute with the money.
EFCC alleged that the sum was collected from the office of former NSA, through a firm, identified as Destra Investments Limited.
In a related development, a human right activist and Lagos based Lawyer, Mr. Ebun Olu-Adegbogoruwa, who Tuesday filed a suit in a Lagos High Court, challenging Metuh’s continuous detention, as well seeking the EFCC to arraign him, has withdrawn the suit from the court.
