Ijaw Groups Disown Asari-Dokubo Over Declaration Of Biafra Govt


BEVERLY HILLS, March 21, (THEWILL) – The decision of the former Niger Delta Militant, Mujahid Asari-Dokubo, to establish a customary government of Biafra has continued to attract reactions from different groups within the Ijaw territories in Bayelsa State.

Kinsmen of the former president, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan under the aegis of the Ogbia Brotherhood Youths Council (OBYC) and other Ijaw communities under the auspices of Movement for the Survival of Ijaw Ethnic Nationality in Niger Delta (MOSIEND) have distanced themselves from the declaration, saying they are not part of Biafra.

While the National President, OBYC, Napuru Bassuo, in a statement described Asari-Dokubo as a loner on the journey, his counterpart in the MOSIEND, Kennedy Tonjo West, also said Dokubo was on his own in the quest to lead Biafra.


West, in a statement said all Ijaw communities were insulted by Dokubo’s attempt to associate them with Biafra and called on him to rescind his decision and apologise.
