With Nnamdi Kanu As Leader, Biafra Republic Will Fail – Asari Dokubo

With Nnamdi Kanu As Leader, Biafra Republic Will Fail – Asari
Mujihad Asari-Dokubo founder of the Niger Delta People’s
Volunteer Force (NDPVF) has, again, attacked the leader of
the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu,
saying he has derailed the Biafra struggle.
Dokubo, who said he’s a Biafran and believes in Biafra
struggle, maintained that the IPOB leader was not in any
struggle for the restoration of Biafra republic.
The ex-militant fighter, who spoke exclusively to Sunday
Oniftv in his country home, Buguma in Kalabari Kingdom,
Rivers State, opined that associating with Kanu was his
greatest regret.
“It gives me regret that in my life, I ever associated with a
person called Nnamdi Kanu. That when he was in crisis, I
came out to defend him. In fact, my greatest regret is
associating with Nnamdi Kanu. I can’t make peace with
somebody like him. It’s a foreclosed issue because he has
nothing to offer other than to derail our struggle,”he stated.
“With Nnamdi Kanu, there’s no hope for Biafra. Those of us
who get close to him know he’s not fighting for any Biafra.
Nnamdi Kanu is just one individual in Biafra, so, we shouldn’t
make him important, he’s not. He’s just like everyone one of
“He’s not in any struggle. Whatever spell he has cast on the
Igbo will be removed very soon and their eyes will open. When
he was in trouble, all of us came out to defend him because
an injury to one is an injury to all. We risked our lives by
speaking in support of him, for him to be released from prison
and for him not to be killed.
“Now, he sees those of us who fought on his behalf for his
freedom as his followers. Some of us regret ever lending our
voice. We would have left him to rot in jail because he’s
caused more harm to Biafra struggle than anyone else.”
When asked how Kanu has caused more harm than good to
the Biafra struggle, the former President of the Ijaw Youth
Council retorted, “Listen to him! Don’t you listen to his
broadcast? His insults to every Igbo person that disagrees with
him? He has also extended his insults to other tribes including
the Ijaw people.
“He’s attacking Ralph Uwazuruike and Nnia Nwodo (Ohanaeze
leader). Now, he’s attacking Pa Edwin Clark who’s not a
Biafran. Biafra is the former Eastern Region. Pa Clark has
never been an Easterner but from the Western Region to Mid-
Western Region. So he’s gone outside the Igbo to abuse Pa
Clark, Isaac Boro, Ken Saro-Wiwa.
“How can you bring unity to the people by abusing and
attacking their leaders? Is Biafra struggle an Igbo struggle?
He’s making it an Igbo struggle. The Biafra Nnamdi Kanu is
pursuing will be worse than Southern Sudan if he wants to
promote Igbo hegemony over and above Ijaw hegemony, Ibibio
hegemony, and so on.
“He’s power-drunk. We are not even done with the struggle,
he’s assumed the position of leadership, calling himself the
supreme leader.”
Speaking on how he fell out with the IPOB leader, Asari
explained: “It was during the Anambra governorship election
when he said there would be no election in the state and I
disagreed with him. I said it would be a fatal mistake not to
participate in the election. I told him it will be better to elect
somebody who will have some form of sympathy, even if the
person is not totally in the struggle, than to elect an open
enemy, who will use the state resources to support our
enemies. He said no and declared that day ‘Ofe nsala’ day.
“Again, during the 2019 elections, I said let’s vote out
President Buhari and let the person we will vote for also know
that we are the ones that supported him, so that when the
person is there, even if he’s not with us, he will know that we
contributed to the removal of Buhari. He said no and started
calling me saboteur. At the end of the day, Nnamdi Kanu
came and said people should go and vote. He said he had
signed, sealed and delivered documents. Over one year and
five months after the election, we have not seen the signed,
sealed and delivered documents.
“He didn’t tell us whom he signed the documents with and he
did not do anything to apologize to those of us who believed
that we had to participate in that election. Rather, he
continued calling us names. I’m not a member of the PDP but
what would have made me happy is that all of us worked
together to remove Buhari. We did not do that, we failed.
“The truth is that the vast majority of Biafrans don’t want
anything to do with Nigeria. Majority of us want to leave
Nigeria. So, Nnamdi Kanu through Radio Biafra has been able
to reach out to some of these people and has changed the
Biafra struggle into a cult struggle, who go about attacking
people who are opposed to them. Before my quarrel with him,
nobody was against him but now, people are no longer afraid
of him.”
