Asari Dokubo Warns Buhari, Says They Are Ready For War
Former Niger Delta warlord, Alhaji Dokubo Asari has once again come out of his hibernation to declare that the people of the Niger Delta were ready to do battle with General Muhammadu Buhari if the President Elect takes one wrong step against them.
Asari, speaking during the 2015 annual Major Issac Adaka Boro day organised by the Niger Delta People Salvation Front, NDPSF, at Ughelli, Delta State over the weekend, also described President Goodluck Jonathan’s tenure in office as a period of restraint on the people of the Niger Delta region.
He however said that: “Should Buhari undermine certain interest of the Niger Delta region through a systemic arrest, maiming of our comrades and seeing her as a conquered region, then it may be honourable for some of us to die in prison or in the field of war as nobody is afraid of him”.
Asari who is the founder of NDPSF, explained that though a new government is emerging on May 29, the restraining order posed by President Goodluck Jonathan, has been revoked.
He said: “A new government begins in Nigeria and a next phase of our struggle shall begin. We will watch, wait and determine our best way forward because the future is pregnant and Nigeria would never be the same again.”
