Asari Dokubo, a former Niger Delta militant, may have played a crucial role in the re-arrest and extradition of Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Reno Omokri, who served in the President Goodluck Jonathan administration, has disclosed.
Omokri insinuated that Dokubo may be the link to Kanu’s rearrest by the Nigerian government.
Citing a statement attributed to Dokubo a few weeks ago, The former presidential aide recalled how the former militant leader threatened to destroy Kanu.
Omokri wondered if the re-arrest of Kanu is a coincidence, while he warned people against making unnecessary enemies.
In a tweet, Omokri wrote: “Exactly 2 weeks ago, Nnamdi Kanu quarreled with Asari Dokubo and Asari promised to deal with him. He even swore on the Quran.
“Asari’s exact words on June 14 were “I will surely bring you down.”
“And now this. Is it a coincidence?
“Don’t make unnecessary enemies.”
Dokubo had become resentful of the IPOB leader and his separatist movement after a spat between the two.
The fallout between the former Niger Delta warlord and Kanu was due to ideological differences in the agitation for Biafra.
Following their fallout, Dokubo had created the Biafra Customary Government (BCG).
Dokubo had vowed to destroy Kanu while describing him as a thief using the agitation for Biafra as a business.
“Nnamdi Kanu, I’m not in your category but for this, I will surely bring you down. I will destroy this evil empire that is working as a hindrance to the restoration of Biafra,” Dokubo had threatened.
