Looters’ List: Dokpesi Demands Apology, Plans N5bn Suit

The founder of Daar Communications PLC, Raymond Dokpesi has protested the inclusion of his name among the Federal Government’s recently released “list of looters”.
In a letter dated April 4, 2018 addressed to the Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed by his lawyer, Mike Ozekhome (SAN), Dokpesi said the publication by the minister is defamatory.
Dokpesi is currently facing allegations of receiving the sum of N2.1 billion in several tranches from the former National Security Adviser (NSA) in 2015 before a Federal High Court in Abuja. But the case has suffered many adjournment without conviction.
Ozekhome said the publication has damaged his client’s “hard-earned reputation” leading to his suffering riducule, psychological trauma and business losses.
“Take note that unless you carry out the above minimal demands immediately to redress the incalculable damage done to our client’s hard-earned image and reputation consequent upon your defamatory and mendacious publication, we shall, without any further communication from us, commence legal action against you to redress your unrestrained and unwarranted assault against our client’s hard-earned image and reputation,” Ozekhome said in the letter.
