Quiz Dokubo-Asari, Kuku Over 2015 Comments, Reps Tell IGP

Kuku-and-Dokubo-Asari-360x225The House of Representatives on Tuesday unanimously adopted a motion asking the Inspector-General of Police, Mr. Mohammed Abubakar, to quiz ex-militant, Mujaheed Dokubo-Asari, over his latest comment that Nigeria would be engulfed in crisis if President Goodluck Jonathan does not return to office in 2015.

In a resolution in Abuja, the lawmakers said Dokubo-Asari’s comment was “capable of causing disaffection in Nigeria.”

Dokubo-Asari is the Leader of the Niger Delta People’s Volunteer Force and a kinsman of the President from the South-South zone of the country.

The Reps also asked the police authorities to quiz Presidential adviser on Niger-Delta Amnesty Programme, Mr Kinsley Kuku, who was widely quoted as saying the relative peace and stability in the Niger Delta region would be jeopardized should President Jonathan not rule beyond 2015.

The House resolution also mandated its Joint Committee on Police Affairs/Internal Security to investigate the matter and produce a report.

Calling the attention of the House to Dokubo-Asari’s comments under matters of urgent public importance, a member from Kano State, Rep Ali Madaki, called on the Federal Government to “check the utterances of some Nigerians capable of causing disaffection in Nigeria,” citing Dokubo-Asari and Kuku’s statements as examples.

He warned that the threat and the reference to the 2015 presidential poll could heat up the polity, “thereby causing unnecessary tension and anxiety in this country.”

The motion was not debated at the Tuesday’s session presided over by the Speaker, Mr. Aminu Tambuwal, but lawmakers endorsed the motion in a unanimous voice vote.
