Former PDP Nationwide Publicity secretary, Olisa Metuh, at this time advised the Federal Excessive Courtroom in Abuja that the Financial and Monetary Crimes Fee has frozen his accounts and for the time being, has no money to feed his household.
Recall that the EFCC is prosecuting Metuh and his Destra Investments Restricted, on seven counts of money laundering and for fraudulently receiving N400m from the Workplace of the NSA on November 22, 2014, for the PDP’s marketing campaign actions.
On the resumed listening to of his trial at this time, Metuh stated he learnt of the no-debit order positioned on his account after his failed transaction on one of the accounts at this time Tuesday November 27th.
He stated he may now not feed his household or purchase issues as frequent as water and pain-relieving medication like Panadol.
“The EFCC seized my accounts yesterday night time and I can’t get money to feed my household. I’m in whole shock as I’m right here speaking to you. I don’t even know what to say. They seized all my accounts in each financial institution on this nation. As I’m don’t have money to purchase Panadol or water to drink.
They have alleged on this case that N400m was stolen. Why would they not restrict it to that quantity? I don’t understand how I’m going to feed my household? I don’t have entry to any money in any respect. I’m prepared to finish this case and submit myself to the judgment of this courtroom.”
The presiding choose, Justice Abang, after listening to his complains, stated the difficulty was not half of the case earlier than him. He suggested Metuh’s lawyer to take up the matter with the EFCC counsel, Sylvanus Tahir, who was current in courtroom.
