The prosecuting counsel, Mr Sylvanus Tahir, told newsmen that after adoption of the final addresses on Nov. 26, a date will be given for judgment.

News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Metuh was arraigned in 2015 by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, (EFCC) for alleged money laundering.

He was accused of allegedly receiving the sum of N400 million from the Ex-National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki, monies earmarked for the purchase of arms at the heat of the Boko Haram insurgency.

He was also accused of transacting with cash of $2 million without going through a final institution in violation of the Money Laundering Prohibition Act.
