Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) spokesman Olisa Metuh has faulted his trial by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), arguing that the agency failed to establish his guilt. Metuh is charged with criminal breach of trust, corruption and money laundering for allegedly receiving N400 million from the Office of the National Security Adviser (ONSA) and making cash transaction of $2 million. He pleaded not guilty.
He is being tried with his company, Destra Investments Limited at the Federal High Court, Abuja. Metuh argued that for the prosecution to establish a prima facie case, it must be shown that he took possession or control of funds, knowing that such funds formed part of the proceeds of an unlawful act or reasonably ought to have known that such funds formed part of the proceeds of an unlawful act.
