High Chief Raymond Dokpesi, the founder of DAAR Communications Plc, has been freed following a “event” that caused him to be delayed at the London Heathrow airport on January 8, 2022.
This information was included in a statement that the DAAR Communications management released to new media on Monday morning.
Giving details of the incident, the statement read, “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.”
The statement, however, did not give much details on the incident which led to his delay.
This comes shortly after Dokpesi was said to have been arrested at the London airport.
Dokpesi was held at Heathrow Airport, according to the website The Whistler.
The Metropolitan Police was contacted by the media for a response after the report.
The Met police had not gotten back to news media questions as of the time the report was filed.
