Daily Trust - - FRONT PAGE - By Ron­ald Mu­tum

The Se­nior Spe­cial As­sis­tant on Pub­lic Af­fairs to for­mer Pres­i­dent Good­luck Jonathan, Doyin Okupe, was yesterday quizzed by op­er­a­tives of the Eco­nomic and Fi­nan­cial Crimes Com­mis­sion (EFCC), Daily Trust gath­ered late yesterday.

It was learnt that Okupe was in­ter­ro­gated over funds he re­ceived from the Of­fice of Na­tional Se­cu­rity Ad­viser (ONSA) and Niger State in 2014.

A source close to the anti­graft agency told Daily Trust that fresh reve­la­tions also in­di­cated that Okupe ben­e­fited from the N400m a for­mer Peo­ple’s Demo­cratic Party (PDP) spokesman, Olisa Me­tuh, is al­leged to have il­le­gally re­ceived from the ONSA.

The source said Okupe can­not ac­count for about N70 mil­lion he re­ceived from Niger State at the eve of the pri­mary elec­tion of Good­luck Jonathan.

It was also al­leged that he re­ceived about N80m from the ONSA about the time of the gen­eral elec­tions through his com­pa­nies, Romic Soiltic and Abra­ham Tele­coms.
