    High chief Raymond Dokpesi and Daar communications charged with just 2 counts each, abi. I’m sure it’s a frivolous lawsuit that will be thrown out of court.
    EFCC just determined to throw shades at Alegho Dokpesi and his company , so they cook up some pointless and bogus suit against him, just to waste his precious time. I’m sure if he’s APC member he won’t be charged at all, cos at the end of the day the judge gonna see it as baseless.
