FG slams Dokpesi with 6-count money laundering charge


Former Chairman of DAAR Communications, Raymond Dokpesi, has been slammed with a 6-count charge of money laundering and other financial offences by the Federal Government.
Dokpesi, who was arrested by the Department of State Services on December 1, is being investigated over his role in the $2 billion arms contract scandal.
The main actor in the investigation of the alleged diversion of funds appropriated for the purchase of arms and military hardware, is Sambo Dasuki, a former National Security Adviser.
Dokpesi is believed to have received between N2 billion and N10 billion from the office of the NSA, for the perception management project of the administration of former president, Goodluck Jonathan.
Dokpesi’s company DAAR Holding and Investment Limited, was also charged alongside him in the money laundering suit.
According to the federal government, the funds received by Dokpesi represented a breach of the provisions of the Money Laundering Act, the EFCC ACT, and the Public Procurement Act.
