EFCC to quiz Metuh over how his firm’s account balance increased from N6m to N1.4b without executing any project


EFCC detectives probing the $2.1bn arms contracts have traced N1.4bn to the account of Destra Investment Limited, a company allegedly linked with PDP spokesman, Olisa Metuh. The DSS has also
invited Metuh for interaction on some issues.

EFCC investigators discovered that Destra Investment Ltd was used to fund the PDP’s activities, including its 2015 campaign. They found that the company, which had N6, 676,576.06 as at November 24, 2014, recorded a balance of N1.4bn by last December.

Some of the strange deposits in the account are: N400m from the Office of National Security Adviser (ONSA) on November 24th, 2014. An EFCC source said: “We will invite Metuh any moment from now for clarifications on some of these transactions. From our records, part of the $2.1bn arms cash has been traced to Destra Investment Limited.

By December 2015, the owner of Destra had a turnover of over N1.4bn. There is no document to show that the company executed any job for ONSA. All companies engaged by ONSA appeared before the initial Special Investigative Panel raised by the Presidency. Other documents indicated that Metuh was allegedly on a monthly unexplained stipend of N4m cash from ONSA.

Out of the funds in Destra account, N25m was paid to Abba Dabo, a former Senior Special Assistant Political to former Vice President Namadi Sambo on the 16th of December 2014.

Also, about N21.7m was remitted on 4th December 2014 to an account allegedly belonging to a former Minister of Works, Chief Tony Anenih; N31.5m to his media aide and N50m to Metuh/Kanayo on the same transaction date.”…. in short Metuh shld change his BBM status to Kuje things loading…..
