Asari Dokubo, a former militant leader in the Niger Delta, claims he is not a friend of Biafra political activist, Nnamdi Kanu and hence could not have “betrayed” him.
Kanu, the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) leader, has been jailed at the Department of State Services (DSS) headquarters in Abuja since June last year, following his re-arrest in Kenya.
Kanu and Dokubo, both Biafra agitators, have a tense relationship.
Supporters of Kanu thronged Dokubo’s page recently during a Facebook Live broadcast to confront him for openly criticizing their leader. Some commenters claim to be Dokubo.
“betrayed” Kanu. But the activist responded thus: “Nnamdi Kanu is my enemy. How can I betray an enemy? I don’t know how this people (IPOB members) are using their English. What connects me and Nnamdi Kanu? We have been enemies for about five years now. Over five years. Since the last Anambra election (2017), we became enemies. We have reached an extent.
“Nnamdi Kanu was the first to threaten. He can threaten others, he can go and kill others, but me I will kill you; I will smoke you out. So where does the betrayal come from?
“It is when I finally kill him (Kanu) that you will know that I have fulfilled my desire to kill this demon, cut off the head of the demon. That is what is going to happen.”
Furthermore, Dokubo asked Igbo residents to kill IPOB members, saying “until they are all exterminated, Igbo land won’t have peace.”
