HATE SPEECH: EFCC Invites Doyin Okupe, Atiku’s Spokesman
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Nigeria’s anti-graft arm, has invited one of the spokesmen of the Atiku Abubakar Campaign Organisation, Dr. Doyin Okupe, for alleged hate speech and cyberstalking.
Mr Okupe, who is also a former Spokesman for ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, was invited by officials of the Commission who paid a visit to his Ilupeju home in Lagos on Saturday.
Okupe said the EFCC who came without an arrest warrant attempted to whisk him away to their office but he resisted the attempt. (He also made a post on tweeter to the effect)
The former Presidential spokesman has been one of President Muhammadu Buhari’s fiercest critics. On Friday, he has said in a tweet that Buhari has failed in the fight against the insurgency as Commander-in-chief.
When contacted on the telephone, the acting spokesman for the EFCC, Mr Tony Orilade, said he would find out what happened.
