How I helped Metuh to launder $2m - Witness

26 January 2016, 12:16

Abuja - A witness of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) Nneka Ararume, has revealed before the Federal High Court sitting in Abuja how she helped the National Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Olisa Metuh, to transfer $2 million into his company’s account, Nation reports.

The witness told the court that she is a Wealth Manager at Assets & Resources Management, ARM, a company that hitherto managed the asset portfolio of Metuh’s firm, Destra Investments Limited.

Nneka, whose company specialised in management of equities, fixed income instruments and real estate, told the court that she received the $2m from Metuh at his residence in Abuja.

The trial commenced before a Federal High Court in Abuja after the trial judge, Justice Okon Abang, overruled objection by Metuh’s lead counsel, Onyechi Ikpeazu (SAN) to adjourn the trial.
