We are ready to return our loot to avoid going to jail – Metuh, Amosun, others beg EFCC

Three high profile personalities involved in corruption trials
have allegedly registered their interest to return their share
of looted funds.

Metuh is currently being prosecuted for allegedly receiving
N400 million from the former National Security Adviser,
NSA, Col Sambo Dasuki, rtd, while Amosu is accused of
conspiring with his colleague to defraud the Nigerian
AirForce to the tune of N50m while he was in office.

Umar on his part is being investigated for money
laundering, criminal breach of trust and corruption to the
tune of N9.7billion.
The report quoted an EFCC source as saying, “We have
formally received letters of plea bargain from three
accused persons, Metuh, Umar and Amos. We are studying
their terms. We may enter into a plea bargain with the
accused persons if it will serve the public interest. The
interest is getting back the stolen funds. If they can fulfill
this condition (public interest), we may accept their offers.”
