Metuh had argued that the money was sent to him by the former president for the 2015 election campaign but the Federal High Court in its ruling said that Metuh should have known that the N400m were proceeds of unlawful activity.

Reacting to the ruling, Deji Adeyanju, expressed that the implication of this judgement is that anyone who receives money for any transaction is liable is they do not investigate the source of the money.
