More witnesses were today presented by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) before Justice Okon Abang of the Federal High Court sitting in Abuja to testify in the on-going case of alleged money laundering involving the National Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Olisa Metuh, and his company, Destra Investment Limited.

Metuh is being tried for allegedly receiving N400 million from former National Security Adviser (NSA), Col. Sambo Dasuki (rtd.), who is also being tried for allegedly laundering $2.1 billion

At the last sitting, yesterday, Eno Mfon Efiong, a staffer of Diamond Bank Plc and an account officer of the defendant, testified as the 4th prosecution witness. He confirmed to the court, a credit transaction from the Office of the National Security Adviser into Destra Investment Limited account.

At the resumed hearing today, counsel to EFCC, Sylvanus Tahir, presented Yomi Badejo-Okusanya, a Public Relations Consultant, and Kabiru Ibrahim, a Bureau De Change Operator, who testified as 5th and 6th prosecution witness respectively.

Badejo-Okusanya, while being led in evidence, told the court that he was paid a total sum of N77m by the 2nd defendant, Destra Investment Limited, to carry out media campaigns for PDP.

Documents in support of his claim, including documents containing evidence of payments for different placements of advertorials of PDP in various media, were tendered and admitted as exhibits.

Testifying, Ibrahim (PW6) told the court that he was given the sum of $1m to change and pay into the account of Destra Investment Limited, a sum whose naira equivalent amounted to N103m.

Thereafter, Justice Abang adjourned to February 4, 2016 for continuation of trial.
