Amosu is alleged to have conspired with two other of his colleagues to steal N50 billion while in office. The EFCC source said
“We have formally received letters of plea bargain from three accused persons, Metuh, Umar and Amos. 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.”.
