Raymond Dokpesi Jnr, Chairman of DAAR Communications Plc, has tested positive for coronavirus.

In a short message to members of staff in Abuja on Monday, he said he had been self-isolating in the past week, before he developed malaria symptoms and started coughing.

Dokpesi Jnr, who suspected he had contracted coronavirus, contacted the Nigerian Centre for Disease Control, NCDC, for a COVID-19 test, which came back positive.

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

His message to staff read: “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 was learned that tracing is ongoing to determine those who may have come in contact with him.
