A former Senior Special Assistant to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan spent the night at the new head office of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.
Okupe had tweeted before entering the EFCC on Monday afternoon, “Now on the way to the new magnificent EFCC head office along Airport Road. I am sure facilities for inmates will be great!
“Wow! An architectural elegance! Beautiful and spacious!”
It was learnt that Okupe was made to spend the night as he had many questions to answer.
The EFCC had invited Okupe for allegedly receiving N100m from embattled former National Security Adviser, Col. Sambo Dasuki (retd.).
Apart from allegedly receiving money from Dasuki, the former presidential aide is also accused of receiving dubious contracts to the tune of N76m from a local council in Niger State.
However, Okupe had said he was invited by the EFCC for cyber crime, stalking and alleged hate speech.
Okupe had admitted publicly that he received N100m from Dasuki, based on Jonathan’s instructions.
Okupe, who served as Jonathan’s spokesman from 2012 to 2015, added that he received N10m monthly from Dasuki to pay salaries and run a weekly programme on NTA.
He was also quizzed for allegedly receiving some contracts from a local council in Niger State to the tune of N76.5m. – Punch
