The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission EFCC has reacted on the recent arrest of the former Director-General of Labour Party Presidential Campaign, Doyin Okupe.

The commission in a statement made available via his official Twitter account disclosed that it is ready to release Doyin Okupe because it is already in the process of formalizing the lifting of the watchlist.

The commission was quoted as this:

“”The Department of State Services, DSS, today, January 12, informed the Commission of the interception of Dr. Doyin Okupe, former presidential adviser, at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport in Lagos.
