Prosecution Counsel, Silvanus Tahir and his defence counterpart, A.C Oziokwu, who represents the first defendant, Metuh, adopted their final written addresses.

The defence counsel, while adopting his final written address, asked the court to discharge his client as the allegations against him were not proved. Arguing likewise, Tochukwu Onwugbufor, SAN, counsel to the second defendant, Destra Investment, said the prosecution failed to prove the allegation against the company.
