Speaking as a witness junaid told the prosecution lawyer sylvanus Tahir:
“My Lord, when he concluded writing his statement which was on four sheets of the EFCC statement form, I collected the statement and read over it.
“I then handed the statement over to my superiors – Musa and Wetkas.
When I was handing over the statement, the defendant said he was surprised that he had written that much and that he felt he had given too much information.
“Because of the comment, I was worried I gave him the statement sheets one after the other for endorsement. He endorsed the first and second sheet, but he tore the third sheet.
“The third sheet was where the defendant (Metuh) disclosed that he received the money for PDP political activities, settled his personal needs and made reference to former President Goodluck Jonathan,” Junaid said, to the hearing of the court.
