Olisa Metuh, a former spokesman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has been sentenced to 39 in prison for money laundering.

Okon Abang, judge of a federal high court Abuja, handed down the  sentence on Tuesday.

The judge had earlier found him guilty of the seven-count charge filed against him by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) which accused him of illegally receiving N400 million from the office of the national security adviser.

On counts one and two, Metuh bagged seven years each, on count three, five years; count four, seven years; counts five and six, three years each and he got seven years for count 7.

The judge held that all the years are to run concurrently, meaning Metuh would spend seven years in prison.
