The detained former National Security Adviser, NSA, Sambo Dasuki, told the Federal High Court in Abuja, on Friday, that he would not be able to remember if the sum of N400 million paid to a former National Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Olisa Metuh, in 2014, was for the provision of security services.
Recall, that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, had alleged in some of the seven counts preferred against Metuh and his company, Destra Investments Limited, that the ex-PDP Spokesperson fraudulently received the sum of N400 million from ONSA without any justification, and spent same on the party and personal affairs.
Dasuki, Metuh’s eighth defence witness, was fielding questions under cross-examination by the Counsel prosecuting Metuh on behalf of the EFFC, Mr. Sylvanus Tahir.
The ex-NSA, who was earlier led in evidence-in-chief by Metuh’s Lawyer, Dr. Onyechi Ikpeazu (SAN), said without recourse to his records, which he had no access to while in the custody of the Department of State Services, he would not be able to confirm the payment of N400 million to Metuh, or the purpose it was meant for.
He also said he could not remember if the ONSA under his watch had relations with Destra Investments Limited, the company through which Metuh allegedly received the N400 million from ONSA, in 2014.

When shown and asked to confirm the content of the e-payment mandate earlier tendered as exhibit in the case, and on which his name and signature appeared, authorising the payment of N400 million, Dasuki said: “My name has been typed out there.”
Asked to read out the purpose of the payment as contained in the “e-payment mandate”, the ex-NSA said: “The purpose of payment: payment for security services.”
Then the prosecuting Counsel asked: “What services did the company, Destra Investments Limited, the second defendant, render to entitle the company the payment of N400 million?”
In response, Dasuki said: “If you want an answer, I still have to refer to my records.
“It would be useful for the Counsel to make himself familiar with the NSA Act.”
Dasuki was also shown Exhibit D1, which was a letter from Diamond Bank, in response to a request by EFCC.
When asked to read the narrative in a document attached to the letter, Dasuki said: “I have seen in the document that was produced, exhibit D1, that there is an entry that purports that payment from ONSA in the sum of N400 million, into the account of Destra Investment Limited.”
Dasuki has concluded his testimony, and has been discharged by the court.
The case was adjourned to December 4, to entertain the defence’s next witness, billed to be former President, Goodluck Jonathan.
