Asari Dokubo Dares Reps, Security Agencies…Says Arresting Me Will Mark the End of Nigeria
While criticism is still trailing the recent comment by leader of the Niger Delta People’s Volunteer Force (NDPVF), Alhaji Mujahid Dokubo-Asari that peace will seize to reign in the country if his kinsman, President Goodluck Jonathan is not re-elected come 2015, the ex-militant leader has thrown a challenge to the House of Representatives and security agencies to arrest him over his comments.
Ir would be recalled that the House of Representatives and other prominent Nigerians called for the prosecution of Asari Dokubu over his war comments, but Dokubu smarting from reactions that trailed his comments, said that any attempt to arrest him will mark the end of Nigeria and called the authorities cowards if eventually the threat of his arrest was not carried out.
Speaking in a Press Conference in Abuja Thursday, Asari said he is not bothered over his previous comment on 2015, reiterating his earlier stance that Niger Delta militants will take up arms against the state if their kinsman – Jonathan, is not re-elected for a second term in office come 2015.
His words: “I stand by my statement which I made in my early press conference, there will be no peace, not only in the Niger Delta, but everywhere, if Goodluck Jonathan is not president by 2015, and I want to add that the Fulanis, who migrated and invaded our lands and continue to show disregard and disrespect to the owners of the country they came into, and people have tolerated them for a very long time will no longer continue.”
