The Founder of DAAR Communications, Raymond Dokpesi, has passed away at the age of 71, according to confirmation from a family member on Monday.
The media mogul breathed his last at a hospital in Abuja.
Following a stroke he suffered shortly after the conclusion of Ramadan, Dokpesi had been dealing with ongoing health issues.
Tragically, during one of his regular gym sessions, an electrical accident occurred while he was using gym equipment, leading to a stroke that ultimately claimed his life, as reported by The Whistler Newspaper.
The Dokpesi family is expected to release an official statement soon to address this heartbreaking loss.
Throughout his illustrious career, Dokpesi made significant contributions to Nigeria’s media landscape by establishing African Independent Television (AIT) and Raypower FM. His legacy in the industry remains indelible.
Furthermore, he served as the Deputy Director-General of Technical and Systems for Atiku Abubakar’s Presidential Campaign Council.
