Media mogul, High Chief Raymond Dokpesi has been released after an “incident” which led to him being delayed at the London Heathrow airport on Sunday, January 8, 2022.
It was reported earlier that Dokpesi was arrested after arriving at the London airport.
DAAR Communications management however said in a statement on Monday morning, January 9, that Dokpesi was released after being invited off the plane, before other passengers were disembarked.
“Dokpesi arrived via Frankfurt from Abuja on a Lufthansa airlines flight 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 for entry into the country.
“His visit to the United Kingdom is not unconnected to the invitation of the Peoples Democratic Party 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.”
