The wife of Emeritus Chairman of DAAR Communications, High Chief Raymond Aleogho Dokpesi, narrowly escaped an assassination attack.

Daily Post reports that the assassins killed the security aide attached to Dokpesi when they attacked his car on Saturday, June 4, 2016.

An official statement obtained from Daily Post reads: “The Managing Director of Africa Independent Television, Dr Mrs Oluwatosin Dokpesi who had arrived from Lagos complained of serious stomach cramps and was rushed to the Child Care and Awareness hospital in Wuse 2.

“She was accompanied by her cousin, Ms Abolore Sode and an aide, Ms Aisha Adamu.

“They were escorted by the deceased sergeant. They were trailed by the Honda Accord and as soon as Mrs Dokpesi alighted from the car and entered the hospital, the assailants attacked them.

“They were asking the driver and sergeant about Mrs Dokpesi’s whereabouts. They collected the handset of the driver and shot the sergeant thrice and made away with the AK47 of the sergeant.

“They did not go with the Prado vehicle No APP 577DK nor did they collect any items.

“The driver said that the assailants said in Hausa that ‘He is not there. Bastard! We will still get him.’ They shot thrice at the sergeant and sped off. He died on the spot.”

Chief Raymond Dokpesi was released from Kuje Prison, after meeting his bail conditions in December 2015.
