Abuja - Former Senior Special Assistant to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan on Public Affairs, Doyin Okupe, has been questioned by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), reports Punch.
He was questioned for allegedly receiving N85m from embattled former National Security Adviser, Col. Sambo Dasuki (retd.)
Apart from allegedly receiving money from Dasuki, the former presidential aide is also accused of receiving dubious contracts to the tune of N76m from a local council in Niger State, reports New Telegraph.
Okupe who was not detained, was given the privilege to be reporting at the commission’s office at regular interval.
It will be recalled that Okupe had openly confessed on his official Twitter handle on May 7 that he received money from Dasuki on several occasions for the running of his office.

Okupe, who served under Jonathan from 2012 to 2015, however, said he had nothing to do with the arms scam which reportedly cost the country over $15bn in stolen funds.
“I was not paid arms deal money. NSA paid for running of my office monthly from August 2012. Dasuki-gate was in 2014,” he tweeted in the early hours of Sunday
