BREAKING: Doyin Okupe arrested by the DSS in Lagos

Nigerian politician and ex director-general of Peter Obi’s Labour (LP), Doyin Okupe has been apprehended by the operatives of the Department of State Service (DSS).

One of the Okupe’s lawyers identified as Tolu Babaleye, disclosed that he was arrested at the Muritala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos on Thursday.

According to Babalaye, Doyin Okupe was arrested by the DSS while trying to embark on a trip to London for medical attention.

According to a statement issued by Babaleye, the politician was asked to show proof that the Federal High Court Abuja freed him from all charges regarding the money laundering case for which he was recently convicted and given the option of a fine.

He wrote: “The information reaching me now is that Dr. Doyin Okupe has been arrested at Lagos Airport by the DSS on his way to London.

“The reason according to the source is that he was asked to produce evidence that the Federal High Court Abuja has freed him from the case in which he was convicted and paid a fine to the knowledge of the whole world and was allowed to go home.

“When will this harassment stop? Who is after Dr. Doyin Okupe? As of today, the man has no case to answer anywhere, I hereby demand that the DSS should release my Client immediately as it is a violation of his freedom of movement, right to liberty, and dignity as a human person.

“This is unfair as the man’s health is fast failing!”
