 $2.1B Arms Deals: Metuh Gives Up Legal Fight, Offers To Refund N400m

OlisaMetuhThe immediate past National Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party( PDP), Chief Olisa Metuh said he was prepared to pay back his share of N400million out of the $2.1billion cash meant for arms.

The cash was allegedly diverted to political purposes by the Office of the National Security Adviser( ONSA) during the tenure of ex-National Security Adviser( NSA).

But Metuh, who has been on trial in the past few months, said he has had enough of legal travails.

He said he had been in talks with the Ministry of Justice, the EFCC and other necessary bodies on how to refund the money and resolve the issue.

The ex-PDP National Publicity Secretary came up with the offer in a statement through his counsel, Onyechi Ikpeazu (SAN).

He said although the cash was released to him by former President Goodluck Jonathan, he did not know the source as at the time.

He said since the EFCC presented a document on the source of the money in court, he had made up his mind to willingly refund the N400million.
