Asari-Dokubo Still In Benin Republic – NDPVF




Following reports that he was flown to Nigeria after being released by the police in Benin Republic, the leader of Niger Delta people’s Volunteers Force, NDPVF, Alhaji Mujahid Asari-Dokubo, Friday, debunked the reports, saying he was still in Cotonou, the capital of Benin Republic.

Describing the reports as lies, Alhaji Asari-Dokubo said he will be flying into the country aboard a commercial flight any moment from now.

Speaking through the South East/North Central Coordinator of Niger Delta People’s Volunteers Force, Mr. Emmanuel Amakiri in Abuja, Asari-Dokubo accused enemies of the present administration for his current travail and incarceration by Beninoise gendarmes.

He said that there was no iota of truth in the insinuation that President Jonathan deployed a jet to ferry him to Abuja a few hours after his release.

“We want to correct erroneous impression making round in some quarters concerning the unfortunate incident in Benin republic in the arrest of the leader of NDPVF and our mentor, Alhaji Mujahid Asari-Dokubo.

“After all efforts by his followers and the Nigerian people we were able to secure his release. There was a rumour that presidential jet was deployed to Benin Republic to fly him to Abuja.

“As I speak with you, Asari-Dokubo is still Benin Republic, and possibly to come back to Nigeria by today or tomorrow aboard commercial flight.

“So, we are here to debunk emphatically that no presidential jet ever brought Asari-Dokubo to Abuja. He will come with Arik aircraft and all of us, his followers, friends and admirers will be at the airport in the public glare to receive him,” he said.

Nigeria has been ranked as the third most terrorized country in the world according to a 2020 report by the Global Terrorism Index (GTI).

The report which was released on Wednesday, ranked Nigeria third only behind war-torn countries of Afghanistan and Iraq.

According to the GTI report, Nigeria witnessed an increase in Boko Haram attacks in the period under review, witnessing her worst terrorist attack in 2019 in northeastern Borno State, where at least 70 people were killed and 10 others wounded when insurgents attacked at a funeral.

“Over the past year, Boko Haram increased attacks on military targets, with deaths rising from 26 in 2018 to 148 in 2019,” the report said.

However, the report recognized that terror-related incidents in the country fell by 27% in the same period due to a significant reduction in violence attributed to killer herdsmen.

“This reduction occurred despite a small increase in deaths attributed to Boko Haram, which has been the most active terrorist group in the country over the past decade. Deaths from terrorism in Nigeria are now 83 percent lower than at
their peak in 2014.”
