Ditan Okupe, the estranged son of former aide to President Goodluck Jonathan, has crucified his father in the ongoing money laundering trial with his recent statement.
The younger Okupe on his Twitter handle, on Thursday, announced that his father, Dr. Doyin Okupe, should be jailed for 10 years.
“My father is the most diabolical human being anybody would ever have the misfortune of Knowing.
“Everything happening to him is ramification of the reckless way he has gone about his life.
“ I recommend he be given a minimum of 10 years,” he said.
The versatile former aide to ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo is currently being investigated by Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
He allegedly received N700 million from the $2.1 billion diverted from the funds earmarked for the purchase of arms and ammunition for the fight against Boko Haram.
Recall that Okupe and son have been at loggerheads over a family issue for almost five years.
Their feud became a major discourse in the polity late last year when Ditan hit back at his dad for joining the campaign team of President Muhammadu Buhari whilst he remained a staunch member of the opposition party, PDP.
Despite his son’s disloyalty, Doyin Okupe, in a series of tweets, commended his son for being a brilliant boy during his school days in the United Kingdom.
“ We both have had serious issues in the last five years. This may be his way of getting back at me, joining the opposition. I wish him good luck,” Okupe tweeted.
The Public Relations expert was quoted to have said that he would never explain intricate and confounding family issues to the public even if it costs him his political career.
