BREAKING: Appeal Court Voids Olisa Metuh’s 7-Year Imprisonment, Orders Fresh Trial

Olisa Metuh

The court of appeal sitting in Abuja has nullified the seven-year jail sentence handed down to Olisa Metuh, former spokesman of the Peoples Democratic Party.

Recall that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, had arraigned Mr Metuh on seven counts of money laundering for allegedly receiving N400 million from the office of the national security adviser.
On February 25, 2020, the trial court pronounced him guilty on all counts of money laundering and sentenced him to seven years in prison.

In its ruling on Thursday, according to a report by TheCable, the court held that Okon Abang, judge of a federal high court in Abuja, exhibited bias in the case of the former PDP spokesman.
