Asari Dokubo, a former Niger Delta militant leader, and widely believed to be on federal government payroll has vowed to kill the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu.
NKanu had warned his supporters at a Town hall meeting in Germany on Saturday, April 27, 2019 to avoid trading Barbs with Biafran Struggle detractors but to instead focus on the struggle to actualize the Sovereign state of Biafra. Though he never mentioned Asari by name, many believe Asari is one of those he meant.
Some people suggest that the accolades, fame and rise in relevance enjoyed by Asari Dokubo in the year that Nnamdi Kanu was not heard from had dwindled after the return of Kanu and Asari is uncomfortable with it and now battling hard to remain relevant.
Dokubo said that the struggle for the actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra has been compromised by the IPOB leader..
He also blasted Kanu for the alleged killing of Prophet Anthony Nwoko, insisting he has not killed anyone before, even as a Muslim.
He said, “Our fellow Biafrans, in this period of darkness, a few people have decided to thrash our struggle in the blood of our own people. So that they will become Supreme leaders, saviours and messiahs.
Asari, still talking about the assassination of Biafra Prophet, Nwoko, said it was wrong for the Biafran struggle to be turned into bloodshed.
He warned that he would not hesitate to kill Nnamdi Kanu if he dares him, saying, “I’ll smoke you out. I’m not boasting.
“I’ll smoke you out from every hole, every corner. They know me.
“If one idiot threatens to attack me and makes good his words to attack me, I’ll kill him.”
The IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu, for the record, has never addressed Asari directly nor issued any threat against him or his colleagues. A lot of Social media Biafran supporters have been, however, responding to the insults and threats leveled by Asari against Nnamdi Kanu.
It is reported in the underground circle that some elements of the Nigerian Government State Security had killed Prophet Nwoko in order to frame Nnamdi Kanu and IPOB. The Nigerian POLICE says NNAMDI Kanu and IPOB are not suspects in the case that’s still under investigation. There are some new reported tips to the police that Prophet Nwoko might have been murdered by some creditors that he owed considerable amounts of money. Whatever the case is surrounding the death of prophet Nwoko, It is widely believed that Asari Dokubo is wrong in accusing Nnamdi Kanu and IPOB as being complicit in Nwoko’s murder.
John Santi Boro, an investigative journalist from Bayelsa State has leveled claims that he has evidence that Asari Dokubo is being paid by Federal Government to distabilize IPOB. Few top members of the APC have also said they have concrete evidence of Asari being a continuous recipient of what they call “security pack”. They say the “Security pack” is used to help maintain peace and tranquility in the Niger Delta region but refuses to rule out the destabilizing of IPOB as part of Asari’s responsibilities with the “Pack” money.
Dr. Dezia Clark, a Nigerian Delta Anthropologist believes that Asari Dokubo’s current fight with Nnamdi Kanu and IPOB would have a long-term devastating effect to the relevance of his name and image and might even erase years of what she described as “Asari’s true sacrifices to the actualization of Biafra”. She thinks the Biafran factions should be uniting and fighting for Biafra and not against one another. She said of late, she’s had several opportunities to speak with the locals and know their true feelings and appreciation of the work done by Nnamdi Kanu’s and IPOB and promised to have a sit down with We4WeREPORTS come next week after her trip to Bonny and other Creek areas where she’s collecting and documenting evidence of the devastation caused by petroleum extraction in the area. Her assistant who gave her name simply as “joy” says Asari is well appreciated in the area as well for his work in restoring Biafra but are very worried of his recent posture and posturing against the struggle. They say though it seems very likely, especially with his recent moves, they love Asari too much to believe he has been paid by the federal government.
Asari had revealed to a pro Biafran comrade who seeks to broker peace between Asari and IPOB that his major anger stems from Kalu’s followers calling him a “traitor” and a “fat Creek road”.
