The lawyer to the former national publicity secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Olisa Metuh has said that his client is willing to return N400 million to the federal government . The lawyer said Metuh has established sufficient evidence that he was not aware of the source of the money made available to him (Metuh) by the former president, Goodluck Jonathan.

Opinion: Ignorance is not an excuse in law. His lawyer should know this. However, he should return the money and it’s up to the judge to show leniency or not. But in order not to appear to be encouraging corruption, it’s best to punish him if he is found guilty. So as to deter others.
