Gabriel Agorye, prosecution witness in the trial of Raymond Dokpesi, has revealed how he withdrew N40 million from his account and handed it over to the former chairman of DAAR Communications Plc.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commissions (EFCC) in 2015 charged Dokpesi to the federal high court, Abuja, over an alleged N2.1bn fraud — funds he reportedly got from the office of the national security adviser.

Agorye, who is the 11th prosecution witness, told the court that he was Dokpesi’s personal assistant and ran errands for him.

He was led in evidence by Rotimi Jacobs, the prosecuting counsel.

The witness also said some monies were paid into his personal account which he withdrew and gave to Dokpesi.

Under cross-examination by Kanu Agabi, the witness told the court that he did not know the source of the monies that he withdrew for Dokpesi’s from his account.

He added that he did not know if the money was a proceed of an illegitimate transaction.

“I cannot say that the source of the money was illegitimate, and I do not know the uses to which the monies were put to,” the witness said.

John Tsoho, the trial judge, discharged the witness and adjourned the matter till February 6 and February 7 for continuation of the matter.
