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.” Dailypost reported.
