The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC yesterday closed its case against the embattled National Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party, Chief Olisa Metuh.
The case was closed after the 8th prosecution witness, Mr Junaid Said, an investigative officer with the EFCC, described how Metuh destroyed his statement during investigation by the anti-graft agency.
The witness said Metuh tore the statement after he had written that the money he received from the Office of the National Security Adviser, NSA, was for campaign activities as approved by former president, Dr Goodluck Jonathan, and for the payment of his personal debt.
Said told the court that, out of the N400million that was fraudulently transferred to Metuh and his company by the former NSA, the accused kept N50 million for himself.
He added that about N77.5 million was allegedly paid to one agency, CMC Connect for campaign publicity for the PDP while N25 million was given to one Abba Dabo for the same purpose.
The witness also told the court that the National Women Leader of the PDP, Kema Chikwe got N5million from the said money while the chairman, Board of Trustees of the PDP, Chief Tony Anenih, received the sum of N21.7 billion.
He also told Justice Obong Abang that the sum of N500million was paid in two tranches to a company, Daniel Ford International by Metuh for the purchase of a landed property at Banana Island in Lagos.
Under cross examination, however the witness told the court that investigation revealed that the former National Security Adviser, Colonel Sambo Dasuki (rtd) had on the 27th of November, 2014 made a N10billion withdrawal from the Central Bank of Nigeria and converted same to $47million which was shared to PDP members at its national convention.
The matter has been adjourned to 18 February, for Metuh to open up his defence.
