Raymond Dokpesi Jnr, chairman of DAAR Communications Plc, owners of  Africa Independent Television, has tested positive to coronavirus.

“I got a call this morning confirming the result is COVID-19 positive. I am leaving now to the Gwagwalada Isolation Centre for treatment and hope to be back in two weeks. Many of you may have interacted with me during our various meetings and I would advise you to get tested as soon as possible,” Dokpesi said in a short message to members of staff in Abuja, AIT reported on Monday evening.

Dokpesi was said to have been self-isolating in the past week, before he developed malaria symptoms and started coughing.

Dokpesi is said not to have a recent travel history, advised those who have interacted with him lately to get tested.
