Former Niger Delta militant Asari Dokubo says he will lead a march supporting the Igbos bid to secede from Nigeria with over a million signatories from Nigerians across the country to the National Assembly. He made the remarks in an Instagram video recorded and shared by Koikimedia via its Twitter handle on Thursday.
According to his words; “Please, President Ahmed Tinubu, I am going to write to the signatories of over one million people all over Nigeria and march to the National Assembly to allow the Igbos to go,” Asari Dokubo stated in a video, which had over 58,000 views.
Asari Dokubo remarks came after a recent visit to President Tinubu in Abuja, where he told reporters that freeing Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), would be equal to rewarding criminal. In the video, the former Niger Delta militant urged President Tinubu and the National Assembly to ensure a constitutional amendment for the smooth exit of the Igbos from Nigeria.
According to his words; “We do not even need a referendum. The president should meet the National Assembly, and somebody courageous enough to sponsor a bill at the National Assembly, there should be a constitutional amendment to allow the Igbos to go,” Asari Dokubo stated in a viral video.
Although Article 2 of the constitution is against secession, but Asari Dokubo argued that it would serve as a cleansing action of the entire country. Asari Dokubo, who described the Igbos as the real aggressors claiming to be victims, said they could secede and make Nnamdi Kanu their “messiah.”
The ex-militant stressed that the agitation for Biafra was too much for Nigeria to bear. He warned that if the Igbos leave, they won’t have the chance to freely enter Nigeria any longer, especially towards the southern corridor.
He said letting the Igbos secede would be the biggest favour to the black race worldwide, and President Tinubu will go down as one of the best presidents the world has ever seen.
Asari Dokubo further stated that there would no longer be Alaba Market, computer market, and Ladipo Market for the Igbos if they exit Nigeria. According to his words; “Let the Igbos go. If there go there would no longer be Alaba Market, computer market, and Ladipo Market for the Igbos.”
“Any product they have, if they want to fly it, they should fly it anywhere. But we will not allow them to pass the Ijaw territory and our coastline from Santababara to the new Calabar River. Let the Igbos go, no shooting, no killing, whether it is sympathetic Igbo or moderate Igbo, all of them let them go with all their pipelines and the small cup of oil they produce; we cut it off, give them their own and no problem,” Asari Dokubo stated further.
