Metuh tenders transactions in alleged N400m fraud suit



Former National Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Olisa Metuh has unveiled transactions on his account leading to the spending of the N400 million for which he is standing trial before Justice Okon Abang of the Federal High Court, Abuja.

The court admitted the record of account as exhibit D20.

Metuh had testified that the N400 million was paid to him by erstwhile President Goodluck Jonathan for a special national assignment, which he disbursed under the directives of his then principal. To further back his claim, he tendered receipts of payments.

Led yesterday in evidence-in-chief by his counsel, Abel Ozioko at the resumed hearing, the ex-spokesman insisted that no part of the sum was used for campaign activities of the PDP.

The record of account contained details of the disbursements and signatures of those who received funds for the execution of the special project.
