Dokpesi released after ‘incident’ in London airport

The founder of DAAR Communications, owners of Raypower Radio and AIT, Raymond Dokpesi has been released after an incident that saw him delayed on arrival at London Heathrow airport on Sunday, January 8, 2023.

A statement by the management of DAAR Communications says Dokpesi arrived via Frankfurt from Abuja on a Lufthansa airlines flight and was invited off the plane before other passengers disembarked.

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.

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.
