Former Senior Special Assistant (SSA) on Media to former President Goodluck Jonathan and the Director General for the Labour Party’ s presidential candidate, Doyin Okupe, was found guilty by the Federal High Court in Abuja of violating the Money Laundering Act, according to the court’ s ruling.

In a ruling issued on Monday, Justice Ijeoma Ojukwu found Okupe guilty of violating Sections 16(1) and (2) of the Money Laundering Act for accepting cash payments in excess of the maximum permitted by the Act without first going via a financial institution.

During Col. Sambo Dasuki’ s administration, Okupe is alleged to have received hundreds of millions of dollars in cash from the NSA’ s headquarters.

In accordance with Section 310 of the Administration of Criminal Justice Act (ACJA), Okupe has the right to call witnesses to testify about his character.
