Three high profile personalities involved in corruption trials have allegedly registered their interest to return their share of looted funds.

Metuh is currently being prosecuted for allegedly receiving N400 million from the former National Security Adviser (NSA) Col. Sambo Dasuki (Rtd.) while Amosun is accused of conspiring with his colleague to defraud the Nigerian Air Force 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 Amosun. 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.”
