Alleged N400m fraud: Metuh’s case still in Supreme Court – EFCC
Written by Ossy on September 27, 2022
Metuh’s case: Following report that a Federal High Court sitting in Abuja has struck out a suit of money laundering filed against former National Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Olisa Metuh, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Monday debunked the report, describing it as a gross misrepresentation of the status of the case.
Disclosing this in a statement signed by the Head Media and Publicity, EFCC, Wilson Uwujaren, said Metu’s case is still pending in the Supreme Court, noting that the news stating that Metu’s case had been struck out, was a lie.
His words: “The attention of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has been drawn to some reports in the media, alleging that the Federal High Court, FHC, sitting in Abuja, on Monday, September 26, 2022, struck out a suit filed by the Commission against former National Publicity Secretary of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, Olisa Metuh, for retrial. We wish to state unequivocally that there is no modicum of truth in those reports.
“Metuh’s case is presently pending before the Supreme Court, arising from the appeal by the Commission, as well as his own cross appeal, upon the judgment of the Court of Appeal which nullified the judgment of the trial court on alleged grounds of bias.
