The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has said a former Chairman, Board of Trustee (BOT) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Anthony Anenih, benefited from the N400 million allegedly received by the party’s spokesman, Olisa Metuh.
EFCC accused Metuh of receiving the N400 million from “an unlawful activity” of the immediate past National Security Adviser (NSA), Mohammed Sambo Dasuki.
The commission said its investigation also revealed that Metuh allegedly transferred $2million through one of his agents, Nneka Nicole Ararume, to Sie Iyenome and Kabiru Ibrahim of Capital Field Investment, an organisation it found not to be a financial institution.
These are contained in a seven-count charge marked: FHC/ABJ/CR/05/2016, filed on Thursday by EFCC, against Metuh and his company – Destra Investments Limited – before the Federal High Court, Abuja.
The EFCC was silent on why Metuh gave Anenih N21, 776,000 and for what purpose.
The commission, which was also silent on what investment Metuh made with the $1million, said it will lead evidence to that effect at trial.
EFCC’s lawyer, Rotimi Jacobs (SAN), said the commission will arraign Metuh once the court indicates its readiness to commence trial.
