Asari-dokubo Supports Kanu, Says ‘i’m A Biafran” by Khodorkovsky(m): 9:35pm On Jul 02, 2017
Alhaji Mujahid Dokubo-Asari, the leader of the Niger Delta Peoples Salvation Force, NDPSF, and one of the arrowheads in the struggle to redress perceived injustice in the Niger Delta has thrown his support on Nnamdi Kanu, saying he is not a Nigerian but a Biafran.

He said an Nkwere man naturally knows that he is an Igbo man and that the name Biafra was given by an Ijaw man, likewise the Biafran anthem. He also said that Lagos will not be what it is now if the Ijaw oil cut off.

Alhaji Dokubo-Asari also gave reasons while he said he is not a Nigerian, saying, when he goes up north, they don’t see him as Nigerian but rather, the northerners call him Nyamiri while when he goes to Yoruba land, they call him Kobokobo.

He also said that he does not have any investment in Nigeria because it is an enemy territory and that his investments will not be safe.

Corroborating what the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu had said some days back, Alhaji Dokubo-Asari also said that the current agitation for the sovereign state of Biafra is not a call for war but that of self independence.

Alhaji Dokubo-Asari gave the comments in a video clip posted by him.

According to him, “ I’m not concerned about what Nigerians think about me, I’m only concerned about what Ijaw people think about me.”

“Sometimes I think that, what would those who call themselves Nigerians think about me, they are stealing from us.”

“ What sort of worry is more than they go to Abuja every end of the month, 36 states plus Abuja, plus agencies plus 747 local governments to share the resources of souk? What is more criminal than that, while souk remain at the backyard of the world,…”

“What is more that somebody come to your house, take your pot of soup, and look at you, and share the pot of soup to different people and then give you just one spoon of the soup that you cooked? So I don’t give a damn about what Nigerians think about me. They will never think anything good about me.”

“I’d be surprised if any Yoruba man, if any northerner, any Nupe man having think anything good about me. I will be surprised.”

“Even though I’m married to a Yoruba woman, yes, I will be surprised because my action is injurious to them.” “

They enjoyed the money that they never suffered for. Today Lagos is achieving but let Ijaw oil go let us see whether Lagos would be what it is. Let Ijaw oil be cut off and let us see whether Lagos will be anything.”

On whether he is a Nigerian

Alhaji Asari-Dokubo said, “I’m not a Nigerian. Nations are not imposed on people. People don’t sit down in Berlin or anywhere and make people Nigerians. Nations are created by the will of the people. My people have never accepted Nigeria and so, how can I be a Nigerian? Nobody can impose Nigeria on me.”

“The free will of the people create nations. If everybody gathered together, the Ijaw people, you know which includes the kalabari people, nobody forced the Kalabari people to become Ijaw people, because naturally, they know they are Ijaw people.”

“So, nobody will force an Owerri man, an Nkwere man to be an Igbo person, he naturally knows he is an Igbo person.”

“So, if we want to be Nigerians, then we have to sit down, and decide for ourselves that today, we are going to be, or as separate identities, and accept Nigeria as our country, as our nation and we become Nigerians. We’ve not done that.”

“When I go up north, do they see me as a Nigerian? They don’t! They call me ‘Nyamiri.’ They call me Nyamiri! When I go to Yoruba land, do they see me as a Nigerian? They call me ‘Omo Kobokobo.’ That’s what they call me! Omo Kobokobo.”

“ When a Yoruba man goes up north, they call him ‘Oyede Banza.’ When a Fulani man comes up to Yoruba land, what do they call him? They call him Gambari!”

“I used to hear a story that there were about three people in a bus and the driver asked the conductor, how many people were in the bus and the conductor said two persons and one Gambari. He
