Raymond Dokpesi, former chairman of Daar Communication, and Attahiru Bafarawa, former governor of Sokoto state, are currently being grilled by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

They are accused of alleged complicity in a financial fraud involving the office of the national security adviser (NSA).

According to a senior official at the anti-graft agency who spoke to TheCable on condition of anonymity, both Dokpesi and Bafarawa received “huge sums of money for no clear reason” from Sambo Dasuki, former national security adviser (NSA).

Bafarawa, who is a close associate of Dasuki, had accompanied him to the federal high court, Abuja, where he is being tried for illegal possession of arms and money laundering, on different occasions.

On Tuesday, the former NSA was arrested by the Department of State Services (DSS) after a three-week on his Abuja residence.

He is accused of N300 billion fraud, and his indictment by the presidential panel on arms procurement has led to the “implication” of some persons, who allegedly benefited from the corruption in the security hierarchy.

Dasuki has maintained that he is innocent of the allegations, describing his trial as a “witch hunt.”
