ARMS PURCHASE SCANDAL: EFCC Arrests AIT Chairman Raymond Dokpesi For Allegedly Collecting N2.1B From Office Of NSA

After a month siege and legal fireworks, the Department of State Security Service (DSS) on Tuesday arrested a former National Security Adviser, Mr. Sambo Dasuki for interrogation on the $2b arms deals.

Dasuki is expected to be handed over to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) after relevant security checks by the DSS.

The EFCC also intensified the ongoing probe of the arms deals by arresting ex-Governor Attahiru Bafarawa and the Emeritus Chairman of Africa Independent Television (AIT), High Chief Raymond Dokpesi.

While Dokpesi was picked up for allegedly collecting N2.1billion from the Office of the NSA, Bafarawa hauled N100million cash at a go.

The EFCC has however launched manhunt for a former National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Mohammed Haliru Bello, in connection with some diverted arms cash.

But at time of filing this report, one of the suspects in EFCC custody has refunded N200million. He also pleaded for bail to source about N1billion credited to him as diverted funds.
