Leader of the Niger Delta People’s Volunteer Force, Alhaji Mujahid Dokubo-Asari, has dared the authorities and leaders of northern Nigeria to arrest him if they can.
Dokubo-Asari, who last weekend warned of dire consequences for Nigeria if President Goodluck Jonathan is not reelected in 2015, told journalists on Wednesday evening in Abuja, that his stance remains unchanged despite calls for his arrest.
The former Ijaw Youth Council President warned that any attempt to arrest him would make Nigeria ‘history’ saying:
“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.
“I want to refresh your memories with comments made by these northerners, who had in the time past threatened war and break-up of Nigeria.
“In 2010, one Lawal Kaita said and I quote: ‘Anything short of a Northern President is tantamount to stealing our Presidency. Jonathan has to go and he will go. Even if he uses the incumbency power to get his nomination on the platform of the PDP, he would be frustrated out…The North is determined, if that happens, to make the country ungovernable for President Goodluck Jonathan or any other Southerner who finds his way to the seat of power on the platform of the PDP against the principle of the party’s zoning policy’.
“Today insurgent groups, in furtherance to Kaita’s call a’re wreaking havoc, attacking military barracks and seizing weapon, but we will not sit and watch. Kaita made this statement, nobody arrested or call for the arrest of this fellow, today he is walking free.
“Buhari made this statement in 2011, he was never arrested and nobody ever called for his arrest. In other countries, former leaders are being tried, but here, a man who overthrew a legitimate government, continues to threaten us with blood and nothing has happened.”
He added, “I am not afraid of arrest. I am saying it bold and clear without mincing words, that the consequences of my arrest, Nigeria will be history.
“The last time Obasanjo arrested me, my arrest reduced Nigeria oil production to 700,000 barrels per day. This time, it will reduce it to zero barrel, and we will match violence with violence, intrigues with intrigues. We are ready for them. Goodluck Jonathan will complete his tenure of two terms, whether they like it or not.
“I am daring them to arrest me if they can. If they don’t, they are cowards and shame on them.”
This man has a mental condition, he needs mental rehabilitation not arrest.
Is you that has mental condition. First the question you ask yourself before insulting or throwing words at him is, what he said is it true, did kaita and buhari made same commenc? Is yes, why where they not arrested? The commence they made is at work through Boko Haram today because GEJ succeeded. So, who now need medical check up?
Nigeria’s peace is threatened from many quarters, its unity is being pulled apart: Oh Allah You are the giver of peace and non can give save You and non can withhold except You. Oh Allah we suffered decades of bad leadership and now our peace and unity is threatened. Allah remove peace from heart of Dokubo and his like, their blood you should cause to dry, let the terror be confined within their bodies, shake them below their feet, turn them upside down while on their mounts. Oh Allah bestow peace and tranquility on Nigeria, solidify its fragile unity oh The powerful. Bless this country with good leadership oh Allah. Ameen
Just listen to yourself, why not pray this same prayer to the Boko Harams killing innocent souls with their booming everyday. This the problem, too many selfish and self centered people. Now you can pick Asari to pray for God to kill and restore peace. And this can only be because you hate the truth.
all i whant in this country
Dokubo, I am solidly behind u becos wen peace is threatened d nxt is conflict; since injustice done 2 one zone is done 2 all. These nothing pple(northeners) think they r d sole fighter n terrorist in this wrongly articulated faction called Nigeria. Infact, lest wait till den we shall see who is who btw buhari n his evil cohort. Hail rocket, missles, pump action, ogbunigwe n so on. Kudos to u dokubo ur boiz r with u.
D only part in which i dnt suport dix “dwarf” is wen he said Gej “must” rule. Its nt by force. Wot has Gej done in d past yearz to deserve a 2nd term? No fud,job,light,security,etc…. Alhaji, Abeg PARK WELL.
This country cannot handle democracy. Everybody in this country is so selfish that we won’t allow somebody else from another geographical region to lead us and at the same time we won’t like to quit office for others to come in. Why? I think we’ll all be better off if we are in the hands of army!
He has a point,because others have made similar statements and nobody cares,why should own be different? Nigerians should learn to hold the bull by the horns
Abeg tell dem waity dem nor knw …..”NO TIME FOR CHILD AND COWARDY ANYMORE” an “eye for an eye”….and a ‘tooth for a tooth’
Comments like this has been made in the past and nobody said anything so, why should Asari’s be be different?
THE INSPECTOR GENERAL OF POLICE SHOULD BE DISMISS WITH IMMEDIATE EFFECT IF THE ARREST OF THAT BASTARD WHO HAS NO ORIGIN AND PLACE IN THE HISTORY OF NIGERIA,IF THE ARREST IS NOT MADE…
are you sure you are in your right senses?
Zainab, I think you are the bastard here. You goats in the North should just wait and see what will happen in 2015. Do you Nigeria will be allowed to rule by goats and cows who has nothing to contribute? Anyway, silence is the best answer to a fool. Just wait and see 2015.
Does this mean Lawal Kaita who made this Same statement in 2010 and Buhari who also made the same statement in 2011 respectively are Bastered too. Because you are a big cow.
Mehn, Dokubo is not laughin in this matter. He has made himself clear. After all, Buhari made such statement ¬hin happened 2 him. Of course, what are we witnessing in Nigeria today? Massive killin and bombin of innocent citizens with impunity… Let’s see what happens in 2015.
if any body or group, even forces of human and darkness touches Asari’s life, that will be the end of the ended Nigeria. please let him alone.
All i know is that “ONE DAY ONE DAY MONKEY WILL GO MARKET AND HIM NO GO COME BACK”. All this people talk as if their life is in their hand, also as if we are all their slave. What is the essence of threatning the whole country if uncle jona is capable of winning the people’s heart(vote) free and fair. Time will tell.
What if jona secure pdp ticket and he looses in the general election?
They frustrated GEJ all through his tenure so y can’t he rule again,he must rule a peace tenure or else there shld be war….I greet u asari…..dis is pure cheating by the so call northers…kudo asari
we d pipo of south-south r ready to take on d north blood 4 blood. No man is abov death so northerns shud bcarfu eas dey we r go down d drin.
Dokubo should be left alone , but rather be advised to chanell his course towards the corrupt leaders. Any act of his arrest is a pure injustice.
Oh! Only d poor are suffering 4 9ja.
May almighty God help us.
Let us allow peace to rain in this land. We are all angried one way or the other, but PDP is not the only party in this land, what my brorher is asking is not so easy like that. In case other parties have any of their candidates win the election, what hap
Asari you’re a man,keep the flag flying,saboteurs like governor ameachi & his 22 chairmen except Obio/Akpo will be flushed soon.
Northerners made their comment nobody cal 4 their arrest Dokubo made his u people r calin 4 u his head Asari we r behind u else GEJ is dead or he dnt want 2 continue Na Aboki go dey rule this contry? Oby chop Abacha money nobdy arrest am bomd 1 town 4 bayelsa no arrest, ibb kil delegiwa nting hapen
Power executed is decisive… The northernats has mounted pressure making sure that anyone not just southernats but anyone beyond the north metro should not have a peaceful administration. If they are not guilty of the crisis in this country since the appointment of a non-northern presidency, let them stay away and see if the elected president of 2o15 will not make a single archivement… As for Dokunbo Asari, we all have the right of speech as embedded in the Nigeria constitution. No one should question your speech… Relax… God has a final word on this
All wil need in this useless country called nigeria is comfidletion Let every body go am controle his state. Oh God help us
I would have voted a Northerner but i can no longer imagine it when they behave as if this entity built on falsehood, called Nigeria is solely theirs.
if GEJ wins d election free and fair and d northerners try 2 stop him from assuming his office I believe that’s when dokubo and his men should act. His arrest is an over statement….is uncalled 4
I will continue to stand by what i say and on what i know is morally right,Asari may not be saying the right thing but that doesn’t change the fact that religious bigots like buhari,el rufai and kaita made more grievous statements than the statement asari made.Come to think of it is buhari above the law?why wasnt he invited by the inspector general of police when he made those statements?the northerners don’t have monopoly of violence,in as much as i will not call for violence justice must be maintained on this issue,buhari made his statement first, so he should be arrested first before asari.I remember vividly that the president of CAN,Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor called for his arrest and nobody said anything about it,i suppose then the speaker tambuwal was blind and deaf,he could not see and hear so that was why he couldn’t call on the IG to arrest buhari. Mr speaker we can not be fooled any more we are wiser than you think. You can only be the president of hausa people not the entire Nigeria.As a NIGERIAN i want to salute the very few Nigerians that called for the arrest of buhari and his cohorts,i hail you Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor,i salute your courage on National matters,you may not be politically right in the eyes of some of our politicians but you are always on the side of the common man. God we always pprotect you at a time like this.Keep the flag flying.
It seems the oil & Power in the niger delta is beginin to enta their heads,if not who are this minors that thy oPen their mouth to blab nonesense,listen & knw this the entire niger delta is not a threat to Nigeria as a whole,talkless of fools,illitrates exprisona lik asari & this old retired,tired j.p clark
You are just an idiot, an illiterate. Are you sure you read his comments and understood what you read?, no I don’t think so.
Na so Ijaw pple r full of madness cos of d OGOGOLO dey sell, did GLJ deserve another tenure? Let him go n sit as BOT in Bayelsa joo
Asaari, u may knw the begining of whatsoever u want to do, but the end justified the means. What actually is ur problem? GEJ, turn u to a bastard billion now want to spoil other people’s chance. U claimed to be fighting for Niger-Delta’s but today that region is suffering the people are languishing do to poverty while u’re making ur money. Let me tell u OBJ, was after his own ambition. Do u think Nigeria cannot live without this oil of a thing? Before now Nigeria was without oil so go to Heeeelll asara or asari.
Asari dokubo! If pple are talking about these nation, not you, a crimrnal has no plac e here. Pls talk reasonable, you are bn.forgotten, stop making noise. If these are the type of pple that Goodluck mixed with, then he is not qualify to lead the nation.
Anybody cn say wot dey wnt,bt d trut is dat dis country is ours nd Asari hs a right 2 his opinion it dsnt matter who likes it or nt.
Anybody cn say wot dey wnt bt 4 nw d north must wait, Gej must go again! Asari am wit u.
