EFCC says Metuh has a case to answer in arms scam

25 February 2016, 16:18

Abuja - The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has asked the Federal High Court sitting in Abuja to force the National Publicity Secretary of PDP Olisa Metuh, to explain the alleged role he played in the illegal diversion of funds meant for the procurement of arms.

The anti-graft agency said it had established that of about $2.1billion meant for the procurement of arms, Metuh, through his company, Destra Investment Limited, pocketed N400 million.

It said the fund was electronically wired from an account of the Office of the National Security Adviser, ONSA, operated with the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, to Metuh, through account no. 0040437573, which his firm operated with Diamond Bank Plc.

Aside the N400 million he got from ONSA, EFCC also alleged that the PDP spokesman received $2 million of $47 million it said former President Goodluck Jonathan shared to chieftains of the party, prior to the 2015 presidential election.

The commission said its investigations had revealed that the $47 million was a product of N10 billion the former NSA, Col. Sambo Dasuki (retd), withdrew from the CBN and handed over to ex-President Jonathan on November 27, 2014.
