The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has revealed that the mention of former President Goodluck Jonthan’s name in the statement by the spokesperson of the PDP, Olisa Metuh was the reason why he tore it.
A staff at the anti-graft agency, Junaid Said told the court that Metuh admitted in the statement that he received N400m arms money and used the sum for political activities and his personal needs, and made references to Jonathan.
The EFCC on Friday amended its charge against Metuh, the Peoples Democratic Party National Publicity Secretary.
The charge was amended at the resumption of the proceeding by the commission’s counsel, Sylvanus Tahir, at an FCT High Court presided over by Justice Ishaq Bello.
Metuh was released from prison after 13 days of remand in custody with respect to the charges of fraudulent receipt of N400m from the Office of the National Security Adviser in 2014 and money laundering involving separate $2m cash transaction.
