Raymond Dokpesi, founder of Daar Communications, has been released after his detention at Heathrow airport in London.
Dokpesi was arrested on Sunday by immigration after a trip from Frankfurt on a Lufthansa airlines flight to the UK.
“Dokpesi arrived via Frankfurt from Abuja on a Lufthansa airlines flight and was invited off the plane before other passengers were disembarked,” a statement issued by the management of AIT said 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 Party (PDP) chieftain 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.
Dokpesi is the deputy director-general, technical and systems of the PDP presidential campaign council.
