Mike Ozekhome, the lawyer to Raymond Dokpesi, founder of Daar Communications, has explained why the EFCC quizzed the PDP chaiefain on Tuesday.
He also refuted reports that his client was arrested.
He said Dokpesi went on his own to the anti-graft agency after receiving a call from its chairman.
There are reports that Dokpesi received N2.1 billion from the office of the former National Security Adviser, NSA, Sambo Dasuki.
Mr. Ozekhome said: “I am not aware the chief collected any money.
“The chief called me earlier in the afternoon to say he received a call from the chairman of the EFCC wanting to see him and I sent one of my lawyers to accompany him. He was not arrested by any group of operatives”.
He added: “What I know is that the EFCC wrote to Daar Holdings asking for a list of directors and whether it has done any business or contract with the office of the NSA in the past and how much was involved.
“We wrote them a reply to say Daar did not do any contract with the office of the NSA and we are ready to give them all the information they need”.
Dokpesi was reportedly interrogated by investigators on Tuesday because he received N2.1 billion from the NSA’s office on the eve of the 2015 general election.
The EFCC said it suspected the money was payment for documentaries and advertisements by Daar communications during the electioneering campaign.
