The embattled politician has been under trial for money laundering and criminal diversion of funds to the tune of N400 million.

Justice Okon Abang handed down the sentence in his judgement on seven counts brought against Metuh and his company, Destra investment, by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

The judgment came after the court found Metuh, guilty of some of the charges levelled against him.

Justice Okon Abang found Metuh guilty of count 1, 2, 3 and 4 of the corrupt charges levelled against him by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.

The judge held that Metuh, who had been standing trial for alleged N400m fraud should have known that the money he received was the proceeds of crime.

EFCC had arraigned Metuh on charges for allegedly laundering the sum of N400m as PDP former spokesperson during the tenure of former President Goodluck Jonathan.

The anti-graft agency had accused Metuh of receiving the money from the Office of the National Security Adviser, NSA.
