Raymond Dokpesi released after grilling in London



DAAR Communications Chairman, Raymond Dokpesi has been released in London, United Kingdom.

The business mogul was arrested by the police on Sunday.

Dokpesi had boarded a Lufthansa Flight LH916 from Frankfurt to London where he was picked up at Terminal 2 of Heathrow Airport.

The management of his company released a statement Monday morning.

It said Dokpesi arrived via Frankfurt from Abuja and was invited off the plane, before other passengers were disembarked.

“Dokpesi was delayed at the airport for some hours before his passport was stamped and he was cleared by British Immigration officials.”

DAAR said his visit to the UK is not unconnected to the British government invitation of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar ahead of the 2023 election.

Dokpesi is the Deputy Director-General, Technical and Systems of the PDP Presidential Campaign Council.
