The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has grilled former adviser to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, Doyin Okupe for several hours

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has re-arrested and detained a former presidential adviser, Doyin Okupe.

Okupe, who was later released, is set to be arraigned on Monday as against January 18 which was previously set as his court date.

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chieftain confirmed the arrest himself.

Okupe faulted the change of date for his arraignment by the anti-corruption agency.

According to the former adviser to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, the EFCC made the change without consultating his lawyers.

He said his lawyers were only informed about the alteration in the date on Friday evening.

Recall that in December last year, the PDP chieftain claimed that some EFCC operatives stormed his residence in Lagos and confronted him with allegations of cybercrime.

He also alleged that the operatives asked him to follow them to their office without a warrant for his arrest and he declined.

Instead, Okupe said he offered to visit the office of the anti-graft agency.

Okupe was later taken into custody by the EFCC and questioned over allegations of financial fraud and other activities in his office during the previous administration.

He was held for several days until his case was charged to court.
