Dokpesi arrested at Abuja airport

Raymond Dokpesi, founder of DAAR Communications, owners of African Independent Television (AIT), has been arrested at Nnamdi Azikiwe Airport, Abuja.

According to The Cable, the media mogul was arrested around 4pm yesterday when he returned to the country after seeking medical treatment in Dubai.

AIT confirmed the arrest, saying no reason was given for it.

The station later quoted an official of the Nigerian Immigration Service as saying that there was an order from above for Dokpesi to be arrested since he is on the security watch-list of the federal government.

Dokpesi is standing trial for allegedly receiving N2.1 billion from the office of the national security adviser (NSA) for the media campaign of the PDP in the buildup to the 2015 elections.

He has dismissed the allegations of abuse of security funds under the last government, accusing the current administration of witch-hunting members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
