House of Reps & Governor demand arrest of Asari-Dokubo & Kuku for treason!

The House of Representatives on Tuesday demanded the arrest of Niger Delta activist, Mujahideen Asari-Dokubo for asserting that there would be mayhem in the country if President Goodluck Jonathan is not allowed to continue in office in 2015.

Another Niger Delta leader, Kingsley Kuku, who had earlier been quoted to have made a similar remark, said that he was quoted out of context.

The House of Representatives ordered the Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Abubakar to arrest Mr Dokubo-Asari for questioning.

The House also asked the police boss to summon Mr Kuku, the Special Adviser to the President on Niger Delta Amnesty, for allegedly making utterances capable of causing crisis in the country

Mr Dokubo-Asari had last weekend said that the current insecurity and tension in the country would be a child’s play if President Jonathan is not re-elected in 2015.

He declared that the South-South zone will not settle for anything less than eight years for President Jonathan.

Mr Kuku was also reported to have said in the United States of America that there would be chaos in Nigeria if President Jonathan is not re-elected.

The House condemned the comments, arguing that they are capable of aggravating the already tense security situation in the country.

The resolution was contained in a motion raise by Ali Sani Madaki (Kano) who claimed that the threats were weighty enough to cause disaffection among Nigerians. He contended that the duo ought to be quizzed by the Police because, according to him, their comments were a threat to national security.

Mr Dokubo-Asari had reportedly said: “The day Goodluck is no longer the President, all of us who are on sabbatical will come back. There will be no peace not only in the Niger Delta but everywhere. If they say it is an empty boast let them wait and see.”

Reacting to the Mr Dokubo-Asari’s remarks, the Niger State governor, Mu’azu Babangida Aliyu, said: “You don’t win election by frightening people and even if you win the victory will be pyrrhic.”

Mr Aliyu received members of the House of Representatives Committee on Education led by Aminu Sule who paid him a courtesy call at government house Minna. He said that the statement credited to Mr Dokubo-Asari was “unfortunate and inciting”, adding that “by now the security agencies should have arrested him for treason.”


  1. Who will arrest them?! with their brother at the helms of affairs. I doubt that!
