Former Niger Delta militant leader, Asari Dokubo, has hit out at a former Governor of Anambra State and prominent Igbo leader, Chukwuemeka Ezeife, for siding with Nnamdi Kanu and his secessionist organization, the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
Speaking in a Facebook Live on recently, monitored by POLITICS NIGERIA, Dokubo accused Ezeife of “playing politics”.
Kanu was arrested last year in Kenya and brought back to Nigeria before he was charged with offences bordering on treasonable felony and terrorism.
Ezeife and other Igbo leaders visited President Muhammadu Buhari at the State House in Abuja late last year to plead for Kanu’s release.
Also in 2021, Ezeife said IPOB are not behind the mindless attacks in the south-east.
“Old useless men like Ezeife who are playing politics, at this old age, when they are at the train station to leave. I used to love him; I used to invite him for my programme. He was somebody I love so much. But for him to be justifying this evil, I feel sorry for his old age,” Dokubo said.
“The Yoruba elders and Pa Edwin Clark that are meeting together, why did they not ask Sunday Igboho and his Yoruba Nation secessionist to adopt the same strategy that Nnamdi Kanu has adopted in Igboland?
“Why will they recommend one strategy for you in Igboland, to destroy Igboland, and they practice another strategy in Lagos, in Ota, in Ibadan? ‘Yes, Eastern Security Network (ESN) is the best internal security’, and you are clapping for him (Kanu).”
