Court finds Olisa Metuh guilty of N400m fraud


The Federal High Court in Abuja has found a former spokesman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Olisah Metuh, and his firm, Destra Investments Limited, guilty of seven counts of fraud and money laundering charges.

Justice Okon Abang ruled on Tuesday that former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki, unlawfully transferred the sum of N400 million to the defendants in November 2014.

Justice Abang said the defendants should have known that it was an illegal transaction as they had no contract with the NSA’s office.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) instituted the charges against them.
