THE SUSPECT, BOTTOM LEFT, WHO ALLEGEDLY FINGERED ASARI DOKUBO AS THE SPONSOR OF THE ATTACK ON GEN. BUHARI’S CONVOY

The leader of the disbanded Niger Delta Peoples Volunteer Force (NDPVF), Alhaji Mujahid Dokubo-Asari, has petitioned the Department of State Services (DSS) over allegations he sponsored the recent assassination attempt on former Head of State, General Muhammadu Buhari (retd).

Following the July 23 bomb attack in Kaduna that killed about 85 people and which allegedly targeted General Buhari and prominent Islamic cleric, Sheikh Dahiru Bauchi, the social media was awash with reports that one of the suspects in the incident, who was arrested by security agencies, claimed the former Niger Delta militant paid them N5 million to carry out the attack.

In the petition signed by his lawyer, Festus Keyamo, Esq, and addressed to the Director-General of DSS, Nta Ekpenyong, Dokubo-Asari urged the agency to investigate the allegations contained in the publication so as to put an end to the threat to his life and family.

    DSS DG, the intelligence network and jona are all part of the conspiracy with Asari. Why are you perturbed mr dokubo? The chicken will soon come home to roost AND you will face the music like sergeant rogers. God do catch you.

    You can attempt the generals life again but you will not succeed.

A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic  Party (PDP) Chief Bode George has described the collection of internally generated revenue in Lagos state by a private firm called AlphaBeta, which earns around N7.5bn ($19 million) monthly as sacrilegious.

The former National Port Authority (NPA) called on the state government to block all forms of revenue leakages.

He made this known while speaking on Arise TV on Friday morning.

“There are so many leakages in the Lagos State Government purse. Take this AlphaBeta; who owns this AlphaBeta? What is the essence of the AlphaBeta? Where else in the world would you have an Inland Revenue Service, who have their own staff who are supposed to go out and collect the fees, but you have an independent company to be supposedly collecting the internally generated revenue from our state?

“It grosses around N50bn (about $130m) a month and you know how much that company (AlphaBeta) is paid 15% of it, that’s N7.5bn in thirty days going to the company, that is a leakage, that is sacrilegious.”
