Founder of Daar communications, Raymond Dokpesi, has reportedly been arrested at Nnamdi Azikiwe Airport, Abuja, earlier today.
He was said to be returning from a medical trip from Dubai before being arrested.
The Edo born high chief is standing trial for his alleged involvement in the diversion of N2.1 billion security funds by Dasuki Sambo, former National Security Adviser.
Chief Raymond Dokpesi told the Federal High Court in Abuja on Friday, October 19, that he is not the launderer of the N2.1bn as alleged in an ongoing trial but the former National Security Adviser (NSA) Sambo Dasuki, who paid the funds to him in 2015.
Dokpesi spoke through his lawyer, Chief Kanu Agabi (SAN), while arguing their no-case submission which they filed after the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) closed case against him with the 14th prosecution witness in May 2018, Punch reports.
