Doyin Okupe, director-general of the Peter Obi presidential campaign council, has been sentenced to two years imprisonment for breaching the money laundering act.

He was convicted and sentenced by the federal high court in Abuja on Monday after he was found guilty of 26 out of a 59-count charge preferred against him by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

Ijeoma Ojukwu, the presiding judge, sentenced Okupe to two years in prison on each of the counts.
