ABUJA---BARELY 24 hours after President Goodluck Jonathan announced that the nation’s security were closing-in on those who sponsored Friday bombings in parts of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), there are indications that the Director of the IBB Campaign Organization, Chief Raymond Dokpesi may have been arrested in connection with the Bomb blast that almost marred the Nigeria’s Golden Jubilee celebrations.
Investigation revealed may have been picked up in the early hours of yesterday, following a revealing Short Message Service (SMS) text message sent to the Smartphone of one of the suspects in police, asking “if Dokpesi has paid the balance”, and another SMS “inviting another suspect to a meeting at IBB Campaign office”.
The alleged arrest of Dokpesi yesterday, it was learnt, bring to Seven the number suspects so far arrested out of the Nine in the wanted list of the police.
According to top security sources, Dokpesi was being detained for interrogation by the security agencies, following “a text message found in the phone of one of the arrested suspects. The text message reads: have you collected the balance from Dokpesi?”
The source said, “this was said to have send alarm signals across the nation’s security apparatus, since the suspect concerned is considered to be neckdeep inn the bombing plot”
Vanguard further learnt that another text massage, said to be more dramatic, allegedly sent to the phone of another suspect in custody which reads: “lets meet at IBB campaign office”; thereby leading to what security operatives referred to as “a high tech sting operation which in a matter of hours, has netted a wider ring of suspects.
It was also gathered that a suspect who never knew he was already under surveillance confided in a friend that “na we do am…..meet me make I brief u”, is currently confessing more details to the security agencies.
More worrisome, it was told, is the confession of another suspect who alleged that “in the last two weeks he bought a brand new Muraino SUV from funds received from Dopkesi”.
Part of the confession, according to our source, includes a directive from Mr Henry Okah that should distablise the government since Jonathan “was not ready to put serious money on the table”
