Powerful Nigerian Ex-militant Blasts Nnamdi Kanu

Nnamdi Kanu is an ‘Empty Head’ – Asari Dokubo attacks IPOB leader

Ex-Nigeria Delta Militant, Asari Dokubo has taken a swipe at Nnamdi Kanu, the embattled leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB. Dokubo during an interview with Arise TV on Wednesday described Kanu as an empty head, who does not understand the concept of Biafra, which he is fighting for. According to the former militant, Kanu has been mixing things that don’t belong to Biafra up with his own personal ambitions and agitations.

Specifically, he pointed out that Biafra has nothing to do with the jews, adding that the Biafra he knows belongs to the Ijaws and not the Igbos. Dokubo also submitted that he has nothing to do with IPOB as IPOB is different from Biafra.

In his words, “Nnamdi Kanu is a person who is empty in his head. Nnamdi Kanu wants an Igbo Biafra. Taking our name to hang to himself, it doesn’t belong to him. Instead of calling for all, he wants an Igbo”.

“He comes around and he says Biafra is a Jewish state, I am not a Jew and I will never be a Jew. My ancestors are superior to Jews. It is only a tyrannical God that will create people and choose one people over and above others.”

He said Islam will not be in his Biafra, I said ‘No’, Which one is your Biafra?, the Biafra that I know is Ijaw”.

Meanwhile, Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has stated that God did not make a mistake in bringing people of diverse cultures under one nation. Naija News reports that the governor made this known when the Chief of Army Staff (COAS), Lt.-Gen. Farouk Yahaya, paid him a courtesy visit at the Government House, Port Harcourt.

While insisting that Nigeria must be protected against violent secessionist agitations, Wike said the war against insecurity suffered a setback because Army officers became partisan.
