UK Police Release Media Mogul, Dokpesi After Heathrow Airport ‘Arrest’

  • As AIT breaks silence on the development

BY EDMOND ODOK – Less than 24 hours after reports emerged of his ‘arrest’ by the London Police in the United Kingdom, the founder and Chairman Emeritus of DAAR Communications Plc, High Chief Raymond Dokpesi, has been released from custody.

Reports had emerged late on Sunday that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) stalwart was arrested at Heathrow Airport with an online platform, The Whistler, hinting that the media mogul had boarded a Lufthansa Flight LH916 from Frankfurt to London and was subsequently whisked away at Terminal 2 of the Airport.

However, in a statement on Monday morning, the AIT management cleared the air on the issue saying; “Dokpesi was delayed at the airport for some hours before his passport was stamped and he was cleared by British Immigration officials for entry into the country.

According to the statement, which failed to provide details about the incident; “Dokpesi arrived via Frankfurt from Abuja on a Lufthansa airlines flight and was invited off the plane before other passengers were disembarked.

“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.

“The media founder is the Deputy Director-General, Technical & 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.”
