Okupe made the denial in reaction to media reports that he was being questioned in connection with the $2.1 billion arms deal fraud.

Former aide to ex-President, Goodluck Jonathan, Doyin Okupe has denied reports that he’s being investigated by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

Okupe made the denial in reaction to media reports that he was being questioned in connection with the $2.1 billion arms deal fraud.

He wrote on Facebook:

“My attention has been drawn to publications in Nigerian Newsdesk and Today ng. stating that EFCC is probing me with respect to the payment to Daar communications ltd. and the now famous $2.1billion Dasuki gate.”

“They claim in their write up that EFCC has written to the Presidency to investigate the involvement of my former office, office of the special assistant to the President on public affairs.”

“My office does not have a budget or any capital vote. My office lacked the capacity to award contracts. I was employed to do a job and I was loyal and committed totally to my employer and whatever I considered was important in the line of my duty.”

“I did not receive neither did I take any special gratifications for what I did. This is what is difficult for most of my detractors to believe. From the entire write up it is obvious the writer(s) of the story were speculating and imagining things that are not real.”

“The EFCC cannot embark on an investigation based purely on fiction and delusionary imaginations.”

“I am ashamed at the extent some unscrupulous and ill-bred journalists will go to disparage the innocent by publishing outright falsehood. Even if people are paid to bring imaginary political enemies down, do they not have the fear of God?”

“Those who are impatiently waiting for my arrest, by the Grace of the Almighty God who I serve, and whose precepts I have kept all my life, in and out of office, will wait till kingdom come.”

Okupe had earlier said that he didn’t benefit from the scam adding that he never got along with the alleged supervisor of the fraud, National Security Adviser (NSA), Sambo Dasuki.
