The total bail sum is N600m‎, while the grand total of both case peaks at 1 billion naira, as the court granted him an earlier bail of N400 million,

The decision is in connection with charges of destruction of evidence brought against Metuh by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Thursday.

The judgment was given by today, January 22, 2016.

Metuh is already on remand in Kuje Prison by an order of the court with respect to charges of money laundering involving N400m, part of money meant for procurement of arms, which he collected from the Office of the National Security Adviser in November 2014.

The decision is in connection with charges of destruction of evidence brought against Metuh by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

Metuh is being tried for allegedly receiving the sum of N400 million from Sambo Dasuki and destruction of evidence.
