Social media went into a frenzy as the founder of DAAR Communications Limited, High Chief Raymond Dokpesi, was reportedly arrested briefly by the Police in the United Kingdom.

The management of Africa Independent Television (AIT) confirmed Dokpesi was later released after his delay at Heathrow airport in London.

Ripples Nigeria understands that the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) Chieftain made the London trip following the invitation of Atiku Abubakar, the party’s presidential candidate, on some assignments in the UK.
