Metuh Transferred Over N21m to Anenih- EFCC

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has said it is set to arraign Peoples Democratic party spokesperson, Chief Olisa Metuh once the court gives the go ahead.

EFCC’s lawyer, Rotimi Jacobs (SAN), said the commission will arraign Metuh once the court indicates its readiness to commence trial.

Aside the N400m, he allegedly got ftom the office of National Security Adviser, he also alleged to have transferred over N21m to a former Chairman, Board of Trustee (BOT) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Anthony Anenih.

EFCC is accusing Metuh of receiving N400million from “an unlawful activity” of the immediate past National Security Adviser (NSA), Mohammed Sambo Dasuki.

The commission said its investigation also revealed that Metuh allegedly transferred $2million through one of his agents, Nneka Nicole Ararume, to Sie Iyenome and Kabiru Ibrahim of Capital Field Investment, an organisation it found not to be a financial institution.

These are contained in a seven-count charge marked: FHC/ABJ/CR/05/2016, filed on Thursday by EFCC, against Metuh and his company – Destra Investment s Limited – before the Federal High Court, Abuja.

The EFCC was silent on why Metuh gave Anenih N21, 776,000 and for what purpose.

The commission, which was also silent on what investment Metuh made with the $1million, said it will lead evidence to that effect at trial.
