The management of AIT, a Nigerian television station, says Raymond Dokpesi, founder of  Daar Communications, has been released after his delay at Heathrow airport in London.

 

According to media reports, Dokpesi was delayed on Sunday by Immigration after a trip from Frankfurt on a Lufthansa airlines flight that arrived in the UK.

 

“Dokpesi arrived via Frankfurt from Abuja on a Lufthansa airlines flight and was invited off the plane before other passengers were disembarked,” the management of the television station said in a statement on Monday.

 

“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.”

The statement added that the Peoples’ Democratic Chieftain (PDP) made the London trip following the invitation of Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the party by the British government to share perspectives on issues around the next month’s presidential election in 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.
