All politicians who shared in the allegedly diverted
$2.1billion arms cash must return what they got or face trial, the Economic and
Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has said.

Party (PDP) National Publicity Secretary Chief Olisa Metuh had admitted the
transfer of N400million into a company in which he has substantial interest,

after retrieving some of the memoranda which the embattled former National

Jonathan to request for funds. A top EFCC source said none of the memos seen so
