An FCT High Court has refused the evidence of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) against the National Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Mr Olisa Metuh over alleged destruction of statements.

Justice Ishaq Bello ruled yesterday that the evidence, which is a pocket notebook entry of an EFCC investigator, could only be tendered and admitted through a certified through copy.

Earlier, EFCC counsel, Sylvanus Tahir, had sought to tender the pocket book entry of Sa’ad Junaid, the operative who investigated the case, but defence counsel Onyechi Ikpeazu (SAN), requested the prosecution to produce the certified true copy of the notebook as provided in the Evidence Act, which he could not produce.

The trial judge then declined to admit the pocket notebook as evidence.

The EFCC had on January 21, 2016 arraigned Metuh on two-count charges of attempting to destroy evidence to be used for his trial in the allegation of receiving 400 million Naira from the former National Security Adviser (NSA), Colonel  Sambo Dasuki (Rtd.), for which he has already been arraigned in another court.

The anti-graft commission’s charge stated that Metuh “tore into pieces statement made under caution” contrary to Section 326 of the penal code and punishable under section 327 of the same code.

The case has been adjourned to March 16 for continuation of hearing. (Channels TV)
