A former spokesperson of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Chief Olisa Metuh, has been sentenced to 39 years in prison for money laundering.
This follows the judgment delivered on Tuesday by Justice Okon Abang, of a federal high court in Abuja.
The judge found Chief Metuh guilty of the seven-count charge filed against him by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) which accused him of illegally receiving N400 million from the office of the embattled national security adviser, Colonel Sambo Dasuki.
Bittertruth Media reports that on counts one and two, Metuh bagged seven years each, on count three, five years; count four, seven years; counts five and six, three years each and he got seven years for count 7.
The judge held that all the years are to run concurrently, meaning Metuh would spend seven years in prison.
