    I’m tired of hearing about all these political arrests. Arrests that would lead to no where than back to more luxury and unbeatable affluence and unwavering freedom at the end of the day…regardless of whatever offence. These have been so commonplace since the days of Obj… till date. Would an ordinary/ a lay/ a common man commit 1% of these allegations or crimes, as it were, and LIVE to tell his experience?

      Hamyz, what I’m saying is, Dokpesi is first a business man, before being a politician with PDP. The money paid into his account is a business transaction. He was paid for services rendered during the election, for his expertise as a media mogul.
      Can you honestly tell me who in the PDP camp understand and vast in knowledge about multimedia, advertising, marketing and public relations like Raymond Dokpesi?
      When he was been paid, was he told the money was meant for arms purchase deal?
      Do you think if he had something to hide, had the knowledge of what the money was meant for, or if he’s fraudulent he’ll allow them to pay it into his account?
      One thing you need to understand is that the money wasn’t meant for Daar communications alone, it was meant for all the media houses that advertised GEJ reelection campaign.
      After the election , bloggers and media houses rate the 2015 election the most expensive election ever. Do you think the money fell from the sky or you think Dokpesi gives freebies?
      So please when you come online and campaign #FightCorruption, get your facts right. EFCC is aware of what the money was meant for, and all they doing is cross checking the evidence, and he was summoned not arrested. It annoys me how some media outlets and bloggers intentionally misuse English language to misguide the public.
      High chief Raymond Dokpesi voluntarily submitted himself for questioning, he could have used his legion of lawyers to fight the summon, but like a honest and honourable citizen and businessman, he’s not avoiding anyone, he’s ready to prove his innocence. All this ruckus created by media outlets are just PR stunt by this administration, to show Nigerians Buhari is truly fighting corruption. It’s not been proven Dokpesi is fraudulent, and I’m sure at the end of this circus/charade, he’s gonna come out victorious.
      Raymond Dokpesi is the chairman of the biggest private owned multi billion naira multimedia house, he’s not just gonna mess it up on just 2.1billon naira, not even dollars for that matter, His honor is at stake, any Tom, Dick and Harry can become a chief but you must be highly respected, and honourable to become a high chief, and not everybody can be bought anyhow. Sometimes y’all need to use your sixth sense and read between the lines.
      Why I mentioned #PayBackTime #Revenge was because Buhari has shown his disdain for Daar communications and Dokpesi after the election, he talked about how he was being bullied by the station, so now the opportunity presents itself, he’s ready to make a big deal out of it. All I’m seeing here is witch-hunting, base on the facts on the reputation of high chief Raymond Dokpesi that I stated before.
      The only person at fault here is Dasuki and whoever gave him the order. I’m not against fighting corruption, what I’m sick and tired of is this administration wasting our time witch-hunting and fighting a lost battle, cos without hard evidence you can’t prove Dokpesi is guilty of any charges. I pray at the end of their tenure they have something to show.

    If he is found wanting, due process should be applied to make him refund the money stolen and then tried accordingly
