A witness in the money laundering case against Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) spokesperson, Chief Olisa Metuh has said that she received $2 million cash from him to invest.

The disclosure was made today, January 25, 2016, by an employee of Asset and Resource Management Company Limited, Nneka Ararume, who said she collected the money from Metuh at his house in Prince and Princess Estate, Abuja, Punch reports.

“He gave me the sum of $2m in $100 bills. It was taken to bureau de change operators who would then transfer the money to ARM. From there (Metuh’s house) I proceeded to Mr. Sie Iyenome’s office at Wuse 2 where I gave him the sum of $1m,” Ararume said.

“I also invited Mr. Kabir Mohammed and I also gave him the sum of $1m to transfer the naira equivalent in favour of Destra Investment Limited. Later on the same day, December 2, 2014, Mr. Kabir and Mr. Sie Iyenome confirmed the receipt,” she added.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) filed charges against Metuh after accusing him of receiving N400 million from former National Security Adviser (NSA), Sambo Dasuki who is also being tried for corruption.
