Raymond Dokpesi Jnr., son of the founder of DAAR Communications Plc, has tested positive for Coronavirus.
The younger Dokpesi, who is now chairman of the organisation, disclosed this in a short message to members of staff in Abuja on Monday.
He said, “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”.
It is unclear how Mr Dokpesi got the virus, but AIT said he has not had a recent travel history.
Mr Dokpesi joins the big names that have contracted the deadly virus that has affected over 1200 Nigerians, of which 239 persons have recovered and 40 have died.
