According to report from Vanguard stated that, the National Publicity Secretary of Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP), Chief Olisa Metuh, was before the High Court in Abuja, with a defense witness, Mr. Colet Odenigbo, thinking that the defendant sought to know the source of the N400million he received from the Office of the National Security Adviser.

The witness Odenigbo, who was the second witness, DW-2, told the court that Metuh’s inquiry into the foundation of the fund, which was given to him for the political campaign of the PDP, was not replied by ONSA.

While Mr. Emeka Etiaba, who was Metuh’s lawyer, said, “My lord, in the course of the meeting, Chief Olisa Metuh asked the ONSA team the source of the payment for the funding of the PDP’s campaign activities. He was not told, rather, they said they will get back to him, which they never did until he was arrested by the EFCC.”

The lawyer told the court that Metuh initially threatened to refund the money if he found out that the source of the money was not from the campaign fund of the party, while being examined by EFCC.

The witness “Odenigbo” said, he was not aware if Metuh eventually refunded the money or not. He said: “My lord, all I can say is that the defendant throughout exhibited character of an honest man who was not out to defraud anyone”.
