Founder of DAAR Communications Plc, High Chief Raymond Dokpesi, has been released by the Metropolitan Police in London.
The media entrepreneur arrived via Frankfurt from Abuja on a Lufthansa airlines flight and was invited off the plane before other passengers disembarked at London Heathrow airport on Sunday, January 8, 2022.
He was delayed at the airport for some hours before his passport was stamped, and British Immigration officials cleared him for entry into the country.
His visit to the United Kingdom is not unconnected to the invitation of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, by the British government to share perspectives on issues around the 2023 presidential elections.
Dokpesi is the Deputy Director-General, Technical and Systems of the PDP Presidential Campaign Council.
“Chief Dokpesi wishes to thank all for their outpour of love, prayers and support following the news of the incident and to reassure that he is hale and hearty”, a statement from his organisation read.
