Dokpesi was arraigned last year before the court on December 9, 2015 for receiving about N2.1billion from the office of the National Security Adviser, NSA, for Peoples Democratic Party’s ‎presidential media campaign.

The judge had subsequently on December 14, 2015, granted bail to Dokpesi in the sum of N200m with two sureties in like sum and fixed Wednesday for commencement of trial.

However, the trial could not begin as earlier scheduled due to the need for the matter to start afresh as a result of the transfer of the case to another judge.
