Metuh, Amosu beg EFCC to allow them return their loots

20 July 2016, 13:30

Abuja - Former National Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Olisa Metuh, ex-Chiefs of Air Staff Air Marshals Adesola Amosu and Mohammed Dikko Umar, are eager to return their loots for their freedom, reports The Nation.

According to a source in the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), the agency received request from the three men that they want to refund cash and surrender property to avoid going to jail.

Metuh according to News 24 is standing trial for allegedly receiving N400 million from the former National Security Adviser (NSA), Sambo Dasuki.

Umar is facing a seven-count charge bordering on money laundering, criminal breach of trust and corruption of about N9.7billion, while Amosu is accused tealing about N50 billion while he was the Chief of Air Staff.
