The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, had arraigned Mr Okupe, who is the Director-General of the Peter Obi Presidential Campaign in 2019 on a 59-count charge bordering on alleged money laundering and diversion of N702 million.

Delivering the ruling on Monday, the presiding judge, Ijeoma Ojukwu, found Mr Okupe guilty of contravening sections 16(1)&(2) of the Money Laundering Act.

The judge found Mr Okupe guilty of accepting cash in excess of the threshold allowed under the Act without going through a financial institution.
