SSS Arrests Doyin Okupe At Lagos Airport | Citizen NewsNG

 

Operatives of the State Security Service, SSS, have arrested the former director general of the Labour Party presidential campaign council, Doyin Okupe.

Mr Okupe was arrested at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos, on his way to London.

Confirming the arrest, SSS spokesman, Peter Afunanya, said the former presidential aide was intercepted at the instance of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.

Mr Afunanya added that Mr Okupe has been handed over to the anti-graft agency.

“Doyin Okupe was intercepted by the DSS at Terminal 1 of Murtala Mohammed International Airport, Lagos, this [Thursday] morning at the instance of the EFCC.

“He has long been handed over to the Commission, which requested for the action. “Okupe was billed to fly to London via Virgin Atlantic,” the SSS spokesman said.

The LP chieftain had in December resigned as the campaign DG of the party after Justice Ijeoma Ojukwu of a Federal High Court found him guilty of receiving over N200 million cash from a former National Security Adviser, NSA, Sambo Dasuki.

The judge ruled that his action violated the Money Laundering Act.
