Dokpesi was unshaven and looked worn and tired as he stood then sat in the dock while the case went on.
The AIT Chairman is alleged to have received N2.1 billion in laundered funds from former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki.
Dasuki is at the center of the massive money laundering investigation and is alleged to have supervised the looting of $2 billion in funds which were meant for the procurement of arms for Nigeria's military.
He was arrested by the Department of State Services (DSS) on December 1, 2015 and handed over to the EFCC the day after.
The former NSA is reported to have implicated several prominent persons in the deal including former governors, ex-ministers and members of the PDP.
Dasuki’s lawyer however denied the report that his client had become an informant while the former NSA said that ex-President, Goodluck Jonathan was aware of the transactions he had made.
