The former militant leader believes the Nnamdi Kanu led group is worse than terror groups.
Founder of the Niger Delta Volunteer Force, Mujahid Asari-Dokubo has labeled the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) as worse than a terrorist group.
The leader of the defunct Niger Delta Peoples Salvation Force (NDPSF), disclosed this in a Facebook live session on Sunday, January 30.
According to the former Niger Delta militant, South-Eastern Nigeria residents only obey the sit-at-home orders for fear of being killed and not because they loved the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu.
He further accused IPOB of the high crime rate that have bemoaned the region linking it to the closure of schools and businesses in the Southeastern region. Dokubo added that the group was responsible for the insecurity in the South East.
“IPOB said Igbo people should not go about their business; they should not go to school. So, if we Igbos no longer go about our business and go to school, what else should we be doing? That’s why all the boys are going into fraud,’’ the former militant opined.
“IPOB is worse than a terrorist organization. It is a satanic movement. They tell them to eat the flesh of human beings, and they eat it. If people sit at home, it is that they are afraid of you people. It is not because you people are powerful. They don’t know you people are nothing.
“People are afraid of being killed that’s why they’ve continued to sit at home, not because they love Nnamdi Kanu. Why is there no sit-at-home in Port Harcourt, Calabar, Uyo? It is because the governments of these places are saying ‘don’t ever come here’.
“Very soon, Igbos will come out and say ‘it is okay; our old women are starving; they can’t go to the farm, markets’. At Onitsha market, people are afraid of doing businesses because they are scared of being killed.”
Dokubo also cleared the air on Kanu’s arrest and imminent extradition to Nigeria. He refuted sharing affinity with the IPOB leader and strongly affirmed his enmity with Nnamdi Kanu and IPOB.
“I don’t know where Nnamdi Kanu was living. I don’t know where he took off from. They said I was the person who gave him up. You accused me of betrayal. I am not a member of your organization. We are enemies. What do enemies do? They fight and kill each other until there’s a platform for reconciliation,’’ Dokubo pointed.
Recall that the Nigerian government declared the pro secessionist group (IPOB) a terrorist organization in 2017 following a series of agitations and violent eruptions in the South-East allegedly caused by the group. Although IPOB suspended its sit-at-home directive in September 2021, the region has constantly been mired with incidents of violence and killings.
