Dokpesi Under New Investigations For N8.7 Billion Received From Jonathan


The Federal Government told an Abuja Federal High Court on Thursday that media mogul, Chief Raymond Dokpesi, former Chairman of Daar Communications, owner of African Independent Television received over N8.7 billion from the federal government on 27, January 2012 for the broadcast right of Nigeria hosting of the under-17.


Rotimi Jacobs (SAN) the prosecuting counsel in the six count charges of money laundering and violation of Public Procurement Act filed against Dokpesi by the Federal Government said this while opposing the motion on bail application for the media mogul by his lawyer, Chief Mike Ozekhome (SAN).

The prosecuting counsel told the court that government is investigating the receipt of the N8.7 billion from government coffers by Dokpesi because there is no evidence to show that it was a party to the broadcast agreement over which the DAAR Communications chief collected the fund.
