Doyin Okupe, a former director general of the Labour Party Presidential Campaign Council (PCC), was freed by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) a few hours after being detained at the Lagos airport.

It was previously stated that Okupe was detained by the Department of State Services (DSS) on January 12, 2023, in the morning at Lagos’ Muritala Mohammed International Airport.

After the former presidential adviser was found guilty of money laundering by the Federal High Court (FHC), Abuja, the DSS requested documentation of the court proceedings in which he chose to pay a fine.

Subsequently, he was handed over to the EFCC.

“He has long been handed over to the Commisson which requested for the action. “Okupe was billed to fly to London via Virgin Atlantic” He said.

Court sentences the head of EFCC to kuje prison

The chairman of the efcc, Adbulrasheed Bawa, was found guilty of contempt of court by an Abuja high court that was sitting in Maitama.

The anti-graft agency’s disregard for a previous court ruling led to the conviction of the efcc chairman on Tuesday.

The defendant was Air Vice Marshal Rufus Adeniyi Ojuawo, a former director of operations for the Nigerian Army Force (NAF), and the court had ordered the efcc to return his range rover and N40 million to him.

Ojuawo was charged by the efcc with two counts in 2016 in Nyanya before Justice Muawiyah Baba Idris of the High court of the FCT. He was charged with accepting N40 million from a man named Hima Aboubakar, along with a range rover sport (supercharged).
