Feb 11, 2016 – Dasuki Gave Olisa Metuh N500 Million To Buy Mansion In Banana Island Lagos

A witness in the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission’s (EFCC) money laundering case against the spokesperson of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Olisa Metuh has revealed how he allegedly used funds received from former National Security Adviser (NSA), Sambo Dasuki to purchase a property in the exclusive Banana Island area of Lagos State.

The revelation was made today, February 9, 2016, by Junaid Sa’id,
The PDP spokesperson is said to have used bout N500m out of funds received from Dasuki, who’s also being tried for corruption, to buy the property.

“Investigation revealed that after payment of N400m by ONSA, a total sum of N366m was paid into the same account by one Kabiru Ibrahim, who also paid in N150m; Capital Field Investment Limited paid in N91m, and one Eyitonye, paid in N82m,” Sa’id said according to The Cable.
“These funds formed the naira equivalent of $2m, which the first defendant [Metuh] gave to one Nneka Ararume in cash. Investigations revealed that all this money was used for PDP campaign activities and for personal use by the first defendant.

“The money used for PDP campaign activities were from the sum of N400m. Among the disbursement made, the sum of N77.5m was paid to CMC connect for campaign activities; the sum of N25m was paid to Abba Dabo for campaign activities; and the sum of N21.7m was paid to Chief Tony Anenih.

Another sum of N5m was discovered to have been paid to Chief Kema Chikwe, and the sum of N50m was found to have been transferred to a joint account of the first defendant and his wife.

“The sum of N500m was also discovered to have been transferred to Daniel Ford International Limited in two tranches of N200m and N300m for the purpose of buying landed property at Banana Island, Lagos, by Metuh,” he added.

Metuh was previously imprisoned at the Kuje Prison on the charges but is currently free on bail.

    Its wonders me that in a country like Nigeria where over 90% of our population are living less than a dollar per day and in abject poverty, even as Jonathan corruption scandal is being revealed on the newspapers, social media, and national tv, some ignorant and crazy people still believe that he is a good person bease he handed overy powe to the winner after he was defeated in the polls. The only group of people that should be supporting that great looters are those that benefited greatly from his looting, embezzlement, mismanagement,and money laundering operations. How can anyone struggling to get a job, living in darkness because of power outage, graduated from college and unversities but no job opportunities should be supportin an heartless , dumb, and unpatriotic individuals like Badluck Jonathan? The combined sixteen years of PDP as brought nothing to ordinary Nigerians but poverty, insecurity, collapsing economy, decaying infrastructures, and gross corruption. These crooks were just sharing billions among themselves, buying properties everywhere in the world, sending their children abroad to great schools while Nigerian children have no hope and meaningful future because of criminal behavior of Badluck Jonathan and our past criminal leaders. This is a shame of a nation.

    De fact remains dat, in each sector, dey ve a means of bringing out money. A bank manager going home wit 90k weekly claiming its 4 entertainment of guests. So be it in other sectors. Let him focus on developmental projects. Instead of dealing wit pdp

    This whole corruption trial, as much as it is welcome, is very very lopesided. I doubt if all these would have come to light if the PDP had won at the center. It makes me grieve when I hear the huge amount of money that these people had misappropriated when the country is in dire need to be resuscitated. Even as I give kudos for the man who is chasing all these rats out of their dark holes, I refuse to be decieved by his hypocrisy. Every campaigne he has embarked upon so far is against the PDP. It is only a gullible individual that would look upon this slanted chase and think it is straight.

    The PDP in Rivers State has pressed for the prosecution of Buhari’s main man, namely Hon. Amechi. But the authorities dodged that one by saying that they are still studying his file. What a flimsy reply! Why did it take no time to study the files of those PDP members whom they are giving sleepless nights now?

    And you know how things are in Nigeria; you never can tell how long it would take them to study Amechi’s file. They could drag it as long as they deem okay. The president said he belonged to everybody and to nobody. This has become almost like an idiom, or like a sacred word from a monks mouth in today’s Nigeria. I hope Buhari does not finally deny himself.

    Not only that…history has proofing black colored individuals regardless of their origination, African or Asian or Mideast, are easier to be may slave than white colored individual within the same geographic location. Who in their right mind would endure suffering like Nigerians and keeping supporting every crooks that promised to help make things better for years without jailing or killing them all.

    Even all this arrest and story telling of EFCC is common and not new, at the end…no-one goes to jail or worst less than 2yrs. And another set of mugu and cronies emerge, promising better tomorrow like they promised my grand-parents, parents, us and now our children.

    Probing will never cease but what does the govt do with this money remitted by these individuals? Start with the little u have collected and then we would support further probing and arrest.

    @ metu, i want you to know that in our current Nigeria there’s something we call immunity to anybody in government. Your past can only be reviewed when you leave. and as for Ameachi and Wike, both know each other secrets. Ameachi told him to go ahead and investigate his past, but what’s Wike still waiting for?

      Tpappy, of course I know about the immunity clause, and I know(or I hope)that you know that it does not apply to ministers. It only holds for people in exercutive offices like the president and the governors. So nothing is stopping the EFCC from swooping down on Amechi if not that Buhari himself has become Amechi’s Immunity clause. The Rivers Mono Rail that never reached completion was one avenue that was used by Amechi to loot and loot and looooooooooooot. A project that he knew that it was not the priority of the state, he started it and went on with it. Towards the end of his tenure, he tried to influence the state house to pass a bill that would compel a sitting governor to carry on with any unfinished project of the previous government. But he failed.

      And so, Tpappy, if you want to quote the immunity clause, you should know where and where not to apply it.
