The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has accused Mr. Metuh of receiving N400 million from the former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki. The money received is believed to be part of a $2.1 billion allocated for arms procurement but which was allegedly diverted by Mr. Dasuki.

Metuh, who was brought to court under tight security, claimed innocence in the N400 million fraud charge brought against him by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

He pleaded not guilty to the seven-count charge, bordering on breach of trust, diversion of public funds and money laundering filed against him by the anti-graft agency.

The embattled Spokesman of the PDP, orally applied to the trial Judge, Justice Okon Abang, through his counsel, Onyechi Ikpeazu (SAN) to admit him to bail on the ground that the offence he allegedly committed was a bailable one.

Ikpeazu, while praying the court to grant his client bail cited section 162 of the Administration of Criminal Justice Act (ACJ) 2015 to buttress his argument for the bail of the PDP spokesman.

But the prosecution counsel, Sylvanus Tahir, while objecting to the oral application for Metuh’s bail, told the court that the defence ought to have applied formally in writing for the bail of the defendant.
