Following his grilling by operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Chief Raymond Dokpesi has admitted receiving N2.1bn from the former National security Adviser, Col Dasuki Sambo.
According to him, the money he collected was payment for the publicity and media political campaigns during the 2015 General Elections.
High Chief Aleogho Dokpesi “made his statement on the various media exposures and campaign transactions which were dutifully carried out based essentially on contractual obligations/relationship.”
The statement however did not explain how the office of the National Security Adviser became the cashier office for the payment of campaign expenses and the source of the money.
A special panel and the EFCC are probing how trillions of naira budgeted for defence were spent in the last eight years. An interim report by the panel already reported phoney contracts in excess of $2 billion.
Meanwhile, the former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki, has been transferred into the custody of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC)
