A Federal High Court in Abuja has convicted a former Special Adviser to the President on Public Affairs, Dr Doyin Okupe, over the diversion of arms funds from the office of the National Security Adviser.
Justice Ijeoma Ojukwu on Monday held that the prosecution made out a case of money laundering against Okupe.
Okupe, in 2019 was charged by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on a 59-count charge bordering on money laundering and diversion of funds to the tune of N240 million from the then NSA, Col. Sambo Dasuki.
Those arraigned with him are two companies: Value Trust Investment Ltd and Abrahams Telecoms Ltd.
