Court admits evidence on Olisa Metuh’s N400m alleged fraud case

Olisa Metuh

The Federal High court sitting in Abuja, has admitted into evidence, records of expenditure of the N400m the former National Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party, Olisa Metuh, is alleged to have fraudulently received.

The trial judge, Justice Okon Abang, admitted the document into evidence and marked it as exhibit.

Mr Metuh had testified that the money was paid to him by former President Goodluck Jonathan for a special National assignment, saying he disbursed the money under the directives of the former president, after which he also tendered account with receipts of payments to him.

Metuh, who was led in evidence by his counsel, Abel Ozioko, at the resumed hearing, confirmed that no part of the N400m  was used for the campaign activities of the PDP but exclusively used for the presidential special National assignment.
