Founder of Daar Communications Plc, owners of Raypower FM and Africa International Television (AIT), Chief Raymond Dokpesi, has tested positive for COVID-19.

Those that also tested positive are his daughter-in-law and three grandchildren as well as four other relations.

One of his sons, Dokpesi Jnr, had been confirmed positive for the virus and admitted to an Isolation Centre.

It is believed that the test on his father was part of the standard contact tracing efforts to know the status of those he had been in contact with.

A statement on Friday evening by the organisation reads: “Following the test that was carried out on our Chairman- Chief Raymond Dokpesi Jnr on Thursday April 23, 2020 by the NCDC which eventually proved positive and his subsequent admission into the isolation centre on Friday April 24, 2020; we wish to state that in conformity with the Federal Government protocol on the COVID 19 administration and management, his entire household and those that had contacts with him were subsequently subjected to the test and with so much emotional pains, we hereby announce that the under listed have equally been confirmed positive:

“1) High chief Aleogho Dokpesi ( His Father/ Founder DAAR Communications PLC)

2) Our chairman’s wife

3) His 3 Children

4) Some Relatives: A total of 8.

They are all presently on their way to the Federal Government isolation centre at Gwagwalada in Abuja.
