Asari Dokubo Warns MEND Against Throwing Nigeria Into A Religious Crisis

Dokubo-Asari-360x225Former militant leader and self-acclaimed Niger Delta activist, Alhaji Mujahideen Asari-Dokubo has frowned at the reported threat by the Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta (MEND) to attack mosques and Hajj camps.

MEND is one of the largest militant groups in the Niger Delta region of the country.

Asari-Dokubo, who was fielding questions from State House correspondents in Abuja on Monday, stressed that there was no religious war in the country and warned that nobody should introduce such crisis as its consequences would be far-reaching.

“I want to say that there is no religious war in Nigeria and nobody should try to throw Nigeria into a religious crisis that will be far-reaching; the consequences will be far-reaching. For instance, in Yoruba land, how are they going to fight? In some families, the family is divided.

“The mother is a Christian, the father is a Muslim, the children are divided, there are pastors, there are missioners of Islamic organisations or in Edo State; even in our area, in my family, out of my father’s children; of my siblings, I’m the only Muslim and my 18 children are also Muslims.

“So, how are we going to fight and kill each other? So, I don’t think it’s possible and I don’t think anybody should be foolhardy in introducing that agenda into the crises we already have,” he added.



  1. Dokubo Asari,d worst is yet to happen in Nigeria let me tell u.Let us call a spade a spade.Nigeria is no longer in oneness,unity,affection,love,forgiven & so on.D people Boko Haram destroy shud just go like dat in d name of one love? No!,it can nt happen.”i can see more harm coming to Nigeria unless only God change it.

  2. Asari-Dokubo i can see that you have collected ur own share of money that is why you are nt after those families this so called boko haram have wasted their love ones, many lives have throwed away without any cause…………..May God Help us because i believe one day the great tree will fall and animals will be climbing on it anyhow

  3. dis is a most be situation. it dos not matter wat any person is saying naw. i foresee brakage , i foresee disintergration , i foresee civil . am afred if noting is urgently don we might not have any name lik Nigeria in less dan two yrs from naw. d blood of thausands unjustly ,unlawfuly and violently kill cry aut in d grave.

  4. Asiri if FG dont want crisis then they should divide the nation before family been divided.the fact is that boko haram want FG to make nigeria muslim country.that is instead we should divide the nation before war started.

  5. Nigerians are suppose to be opposing d amnesty program intended by d F.G & stop wasting their time on antagonising Dokubo cuz what he says is d truth & fact of d matter. Are those monsters calling themselves Boko Haram not killing muslims ? They kill muslims as well as they kill christians. Let’s face d reality & stop causing unnecessary crisis, Boko Haram has nothing, i mean absolutely nothing to do with Islam, rather their mission is to make Nigeria ungovernnable for our half-wit President & his bunch of selfish & moron advisers.

  6. Alhaji Asari I respect u so much but in this case I think u should know that it can not continue like this 4ever if it is religious war that will bring peace to those who will survive so be it, 4 sure many will die. I support MEND with all my heart let it be eye 4 an eye this time let see who bld more. it is understandable that not all the Muslims are supporting them but I think majority of ur leaders support them as long as they are killing the infidels the Christians and making it difficult 4 GEJ to concentrate. born to rule fools.
