Information reaching GRASSROOT REPORTERS has it that Doyin Okupe, the former Director General of Peter Obi/Datti Presidential Campaign Council has been arrested by the Department of Security Services (DSS).
It was gathered that Okupe was arrested at the Muritala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos on Thursday morning.
Tolu Babaleye, one of Okupe’s lawyers made this known on Thursday in a statement.
Babaleye stated: “The information reaching me now is that Dr. Doyin Okupe has been arrested at Lagos Airport by the DSS on his way to London.”
“The reason according to the source is that he wax asked to produce evidence that the Federal High Court Abuja has freed him from the case in which he wax convicted and paid fine to the knowledge of the whole world and was allowed to go home.
“When will this harassment stop? Who is after Dr. Doyin Okupe? As at today, the man has no case to answer anywhere, I hereby demand that the DSS should release my Client immediately as ti’s is a violation of his freedom of movement, right to liberty and dignity of human person.
“This is unfair as the man health is fast failing!”
Recall that Okupe was recently sentenced to two years imprisonment for breaching the money laundering act.
