The Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra, MASSOB, has described former militant leader, Asari Dokubo as a criminal and an economic saboteur.
MASSOB was reacting to Dokubo’s call that President Bola Tinubu should not release Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.
After a meeting with Tinubu, Dokubo said releasing Kanu would be a reward for criminality in the Southeast.
“Releasing Nnamdi Kanu is rewarding criminality and rewarding gruesome murder of innocent people. He should face the law for the actions and instigations he has carried out,” Dokubo said.
Condemning the comment, MASSOB leader, Uchenna Madu, said the call was the “ranting of a frustrated criminal.”
According to Madu: “Asari Dokubo should be ashamed of himself, for biting the finger that fed him, by selling his conscience as an object of cheap sabotage against the collective interest of the Eastern region in order to get relevance from the federal government, he fought against and killed her hundreds of military and other security agents
“Asari Dokubo is the criminal, not Nnamdi Kanu. How can a man with illegal possession of general-purpose machine guns and hundreds of AK-47 call a man without a catapult a criminal?
“MASSOB wishes to remind Asari Dokubo how himself and his militant criminal boys destroyed and vandalised petroleum pipelines in the name of self-determination agitation for Ijaw people.
“Asari Dokubo asking Tinubu not to release Nnamdi Kanu is a direct exposure of the real criminal who should be ignored.
“Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is not a criminal or an inconsequential saboteur like the Moslem perpetual slave called Alhaji Dokubo Asari.”
