On May 1st, Dokpesi, his daughter-in-law and six members of his family, tested positive for the virus, days after his first son, Raymond Jnr, tested positive for the virus.
They were immediately evacuated to an isolation center in Abuja where they received treatment for the disease.
Thankfully, Raymond Snr and two of his grandchildren who were also infected, have recovered and were discharged on Thursday morning May 14, after testing negative twice for the virus.
In a letter of appreciation signed by him, the media mogul expressed gratitude to God for seeing his family through the trying period.

According to him, the past two weeks at the treatment center provided him with first-hand experience of the enormous challenge before Nigeria as a country.
