Share This
Interestingly, the security agents were not agents of the immigration as expected. Rather it was agents of the Nigeria Intelligence Agency [NIA]. Dokpesi was queried by the agents on why he was carrying two passports and why he was traveling a lot – and the purpose of his traveling. The interrogating agent, a young Hausa man, seemed not knowledgeable about immigration policies of Nigeria.
The recent announcement by the national broadcasting commission [NBC] on June 6, 2019 of the suspension of broadcasting license from DAAR Communication, the parent company of AIT has been traced to the President of the federation, President Muhammadu Buhari. This is as reliable information points to the recent concluded presidential elections as the reason for the order to shutdown AIT with immediate effect.

Factszone learnt from inside source knowledgeable of the details leading to the eventual shutdown of the broadcasting giant indicates that close associates of the President believes the top boss of the DAAR Communication group, Chief Raymond Dokpesi may have spearheaded the team that obtained information regarded the election results data stored in the server belonging to the Independent National Electoral Commission [INEC].
A source pointed to the recent harassment on the person of Raymond Dokpesi and the AIT broadcasting outfit as stemming from intelligence from security outfit which revealed that Raymond Dokpesi may have critical information of how the Atiku presidential campaign managed to retrieve information from the INEC server. The source noted that the Buhari presidential campaign were shocked and more surprised on how the Atiku campaign obtained the safely guarded information. The source confirmed the data to be authentic and highly representative of the real election results for the presidential elections.
It was gathered that following the revelation by the former vice president, Alhaji Abubakar Atiku of his having data results stored in the INEC servers, the Nigeria security outfits launched increased surveillance of persons believed to have actively participated in the Atiku presidential campaign particularly, the DAAR Communication boss
Prior to the Atiku revelation, the DAAR Communication boss was able to travel out of the country for medical checkups – with the open knowledge of the applicable security outfits. It all changed as soon as the revelation was made. Dokpesi was accosted at the Abuja International airport by security officials upon his re-entry into Nigeria from a trip to London.
Interestingly, the security agents were not agents of the immigration as expected. Rather it was agents of the Nigeria Intelligence Agency [NIA]. Dokpesi was queried by the agents on why he was carrying two passports and why he was traveling a lot – and the purpose of his traveling. The interrogating agent, a young Hausa man, seemed not knowledgeable about immigration policies of Nigeria.

Following the episode at the airport, the persecution continued. The Minister of the Federal Capital Territory [FCT] Malam Bello moved to begin demolition of properties belonging to AIT in Abuja. Many of the properties destroyed/demolished were carried out on questionable reasons.
During the 2015 president election, the AIT Broadcasting outfit had aired a paid advertorial for the then Jonathan presidential campaign. The advertorial which aired on the television network showcased the past activities of the then presidential challenger, Muhammadu Buhari in not so flattering manner. The Buhari administration remains unhappy over the advertorials. Raymond Dokpesi was immediately taken into the custody of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission [EFCC] upon Buhari victory at the polls.
