Lawyer to DAAR Communications chairman, Raymond Dokpesi, Mike Ozekhome (SAN) says that his client was never arrested by EFCC over the ongoing investigation into the $2.1 billion arms deal.
In an interview with Leadership newspaper, said Dokpesi was invited by the EFCC and he honored the invitation yesterday afternoon.
“Chief Dokpesi was not arrested but invited by the EFCC. He went there on his own volition, voluntarily upon a mere phone call, asking him to see the acting chairman of the EFCC, Ibrahim Magu. The EFCC was trying to find out if there was any contract awarded to one of the firms under Daar Holdings from the office of the NSA. The firm later replied that there was no such contract in its record. The commission later demanded for the list of directors and same was made available to the agency. One of our lawyers accompanied Dokpesi to the EFCC and I believe that he will be released once he is through with the questioning.”he said
