ABUJA, Nigeria (AP) - Raymond Dokpesi, the owner of the Africa Independent Television network, told reporters Saturday that his family received threats
Friday night that his son would be kidnapped.
Dokpesi said the threats were "definitely masterminded and supported actively by President Goodluck Jonathan groups."
Dokpesi is a campaign chairman for former military dictator Ibrahim Babangida's presidential bid. Jonathan has yet to say whether he will run in the Jan. 22 presidential election.
In a statement Saturday night, Jonathan's office called
Dokpesi's claims "lies."
