A former spokesman for People’s Democratic Party (PDP) Olisa Metuh has been sentenced to seven years imprisonment.

The judge, Justice Okon Abang, had earlier found him guilty of all the seven-count charge filed against him by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

The EFCC charged Metuh alongside his company, Destra investment, with seven counts of money laundering and diversion of funds he received from the office of the former National Security Adviser (NSA), Sambo Dasuki (rtd).

Dasuki allegedly misappropriation about N19.4 billion arms funds during the former President Goodluck Jonathan’s administration and gave N400 million to Metuh.
