A former Niger Delta militant leader, Asari Dokubo, has said he prefers to “be with” President Muhammadu Buhari than the ongoing Biafran struggle because of what he describes as ‘carnage and monumental genocide being perpetrated by Nnamdi Kanu’s hirelings across Igboland’.
Speaking during a Facebook Live on Thursday monitored by POLITICS NIGERIA, Dokubo stated that he “chased” armed militias of Kanu’s organisation, the banned Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), away from Rivers, his state.
“Let it be known that today, I will prefer to be with Buhari than the Biafra of this carnage, Biafra of this monumental genocide being committed by Nnamdi Kanu’s hirelings all over Igboland” Dokubo said.
“I stopped them in Rivers State, I chased them out. I have pursued them to their hideouts, and I’m chasing them out.”
This newspaper reports that Dokubo has repeatedly expressed his support for Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the presidential candidate of Buhari’s party, the All Progressives Congress (APC).
