The London metropolitan police have opened up on the incident involving the founder of Daar Communications, Raymond Dokpesi.
A report by Punch stated that an email from the London Police confirmed a “71-year-old man” was nabbed on an allegation of rape at Heathrow Airport on Sunday.
According to the police, the rape allegation took place in August 2019, and the date for further probe into the case has been fixed for early April.
However, the correspondence failed to confirm Dokpesi’s identity.
The email reads, “On Sunday, 8 January, a 71-year-old man was arrested at Heathrow Airport on suspicion of rape. The arrest relates to an allegation of rape in August 2019. The man has been bailed, pending further enquiries, to a date in early April. Enquiries into the circumstances continue.
“Please, note that we don’t confirm the identity of any person who has been arrested but not charged.”
Recall that Dokpesi who clocked 71 last year was on Sunday delayed by Immigration after a trip from Frankfurt on a Lufthansa airlines flight that arrived in the UK.
Dopkesi who is the deputy director-general (technical and systems) of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, presidential campaign council arrived in London following the invitation of the presidential candidate of the party, Atiku Abubakar, by the British government to share ideas on issues around February’s presidential poll in Nigeria.
The management of AIT, Dokpesi’s media establishment, said he was released after a couple of hours and his passport was stamped and he was cleared by British Immigration officials for entry into the country.
