The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) yesterday confirmed a fresh grilling of Dr. Doyin Okupe, who was a former Senior Special Assistant to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan. Okupe was questioned over alleged N162million illicit payments to him and his companies by a former National Security Adviser, Col. Sambo Dasuki (rtd), and Chanchaga Local Government in Niger State.
But the former Presidential spokesman pleaded with the EFCC not to detain him because he has a heart problem. Although the anti-graft agency admitted Okupe to bail on compassionate ground, he was mandated to be reporting at intervals.
According to a top source, Okupe had been reporting to the anti-graft agency after he was initially interrogated on June 22, 2016.
