Abuja - The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has again quizzed the Senior Special Assistant on Public Affairs to former President Goodluck Jonathan, Doyin Okupe, Daily Trust reports.
Okupe was questioned over funds he received from the Office of National Security Adviser (ONSA) and Niger State in 2014.
Fresh revelations indicated that Okupe benefited from the N400m a former People’s Democratic Party (PDP) spokesman, Olisa Metuh, is alleged to have 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.
News24 previously reported that Okupe, on Sunday admitted collecting more than N100million from the Office of National Security Adviser (ONSA) when Col. Sambo Dasuki (retd.) was in charge.
The former Senior Special Assitant (Media and Publicity) to former President Goodluck Jonathan said part of the cash was a N10milion vote to furnish his rented apartment.
Okupe on his Facebook page, said former President Goodluck Jonathan approved the release of the funds from his security vote.
He admitted using the funds to run his office from 2012 to 2015.
