Asari Dokubo, a former militant leader in the Niger Delta, came under fire on Wednesday from the Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra, or MASSOB, for his most recent remark that Igbos are slaves.
Dokubo can never be considered a hero, according to MASSOB’s leader Uchenna Madu, despite supposedly doing errands for Yoruba, Hausa, and Fulani people.
Dokubo was called a “expired animal” by Madu for claiming that the Igbos were subjugated by the Kalabari and Ijaw.
This unjustified verbal assault on Ndigbo has reawakened our spirit of loyalty and bravery, according to a statement by Madu.
“It is documented that Ijaw people with their allies have never attained 7% of the conquest, dominion, and dominance of what Ndigbo have achieved both in the pre-colonial era and in this current day in the traditional history of conquest, fighting, and bravery of Ndigbo and Ijaw people.
“In his bourgeois idiocy, Asari Dokubo forgot that Ndigbo were the ones who prevented the British colonial tyrants from modifying and erasing the local names and cultural legacies of the Ijaw people during the conquering of the British colonial expedition.
“Dokubo Asari has once more demonstrated his shabby mindset and huffiness.
“The fact that Ndigbo treat Ijaw people as brothers and sisters and that they live next door to Ndigbo does not justify Ijaw competing with Ndigbo on a national and international scale in every aspect of life. In general, even the Hausas, Yorubas, and Fulanis view the Ijaw as an outpost of the Ndigbo from the Eastern region.
“MASSOB reminds Dokubo Asari that the federal government despises Ijaws more than Ndigbo, thus no amount of his loyalty and errand-boyish duties to Yoruba, Hausa, and Fulanis of prejudiced Nigeria will make him a hero or get him renowned recognition.
We remind him of his older brothers, Isaac Adaka Boro, Ken Saro Wiwa, and Henry Okah, whose unwavering allegiance to Nigeria and services rendered in opposition to Ndigbo resulted in their deaths. Because evil can never be praised, they are forgotten.
