Doyin Okupe - BREAKING: EFCC storms PDP chieftain, Doyin Okupe's home

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission reportedly stormed the Lagos residence of PDP chieftain, Doyin Okupe earlier today to effect his arrest.

Two anti-graft officers from Commission were at the home of former presidential aide in Illupeju demanding that he follows them to their office for questioning.

Okupe revealed this via a tweet at about 4:30 p.m. that the EFCC agents stormed his house without bearing any invitation document or arrest warrant.

He revealed that the agents said he had done something that violated the Cybercrime Act, a repressive law enacted shortly before President Goodluck Jonathan left office in 2015.

“They knocked and I told them to come in, but when they identified themselves as being from the EFCC, I asked for letter of invitation or arrest warrant, but they could not provide either,” He said.

“I immediately said I cannot follow them that they should give me time and also go back and obtain a warrant or invitation letter. They said they are looking for me for cyberstalking, But they have now left my house and I did not follow them”.

It will be recalled that Mr. Okupe is a strong critic of the Federal government and fierce opposition figure.
