    Dasuki misspend $2.1 billion, and held on 19 counts charge, but his bail bond was 250million naira.
    Alegho Dokpesi was detained for receiving just 2 billion naira from Dasuki and held on 2 frivolous counts charge, but his bail bond was 400 million naira, and someone tell me this is not a witch-hunt, abi….
    EFCC already know Dokpesi case is a lost cause, but they’re following orders to frustrate him and waste his time.
