Arms Deal: How Dokpesi Collected N2.1bn For Doing Just Nothing – Witness

Mr. Abubakar Madaki, a witness for the prosecution in the on-going trial of former Chairman, DAAR Communications Plc, Mr Raymond Dokpesi, Friday, told the Federal High Court, Abuja ‎that the accused received money for rendering NO SERVICES.

Madaki, during cross-examination by Dokpesi’s counsel, Mr Kanu Agabi (SAN), said that: “Dokpesi was paid for doing nothing, for rendering no service”.

The witness further said that the N2.1 billion, under investigation was money from the office of the National Security Adviser.

Going by him, all the funds in the account of the National Security Adviser are for national security.

The witness who is an operative of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, (EFCC) said that he was on the team that was appointed by the commission to investigate funds meant for national security that were allegedly diverted to personal needs.

When Agabi sought to know what evidence he had of the diversion, the witness said: “the funds were found in their accounts when they had no reason to take it.

“This is because they could not account for any contract they executed for such payments.”

Justice John Tsoho adjourned the matter until April 13 for the continuation of cross-examination of the witness.
