January 09, (THEWILL) – Chairman of DAAR Communications Limited and Technical Director of the Peoples Democratic Party Presidential Campaign Council (PDP-PCC), High Chief Raymond Aleogho Dokpesi, has been cleared after an “incident”, which led to his delay at the London Heathrow airport on Sunday.
THEWILL earlier reported that Dokpesi was detained by Immigration officials at the Terminal 2 of Heathrow Airport in London, shortly after he arrived in the country from Frankfurt, Germany via a Lufthansa Flight LH916.
A statement issued on Monday, by the DAAR Communications management, said Dokpesi was released after his passport was stamped and cleared by British Immigration officials for entry into the country.
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.”
