The older Dokpesi has been charged with money laundering by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) after collecting N2.1bn out the $2.1 billion arms fund which was allegedly looted under the supervision of National Security Adviser (NSA), Sambo Dasuki.

According to a statement released by the management of DAAR Communications, Dokpesi received the money from Dasuki for “publicity and media political campaigns during the 2015 General Elections.”

The AIT boss was detained at the Kuje Prison after being charged to court by the EFCC.

He was eventually released on bail after which he urged the Federal Government to reform the country’s prisons.
