Justice Okon Abang of the Federal High Court in Abuja has found, Olisa Metuh, the former National Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and his firm, Dextra Investment Limited guilty of laundering over four hundred million naira.

Ruling on the first count the judge ruled that a former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki, unlawfully transferred the sum of N400 million to the defendants in November 2014.

Shortly after he was convicted, the trial judged suspended reading the judgment to allow the former PDP spokesman use the gents. Upon his return to the courtroom, Justice Abang proceeded with his judgment on the second count of the charges which bordered on the criminal conversion of N400 million.

According to him, the evidence before him shows that the money was used to fund activities of the PDP. The judge added that Metuh also used the money to acquire a property at Banana Island in Lagos. He explained that this was contrary to the e-payment mandate which stated that the money was meant for security services, whereas Dextra Investment was not a registered security outfit.
