Dokubo-Asari vows to cripple Nigerian oil production
Dares Reps, Northern leaders
Leader of the Niger Delta People’s Volunteer Force (NDPVF), Mujahid Dokubo-Asari, on Thursday vowed to halt oil production in the country, if he is arrested.
Dokubo-Asari, who spoke at a press conference in Abuja, was adamant and insisted that he stands by his comment for which the security agencies are now being prevailed upon to arrest him.
He challenged the House of Representatives and some northern leaders to order his arrest, if they can.
“The last time former president Olusegun Obasanjo arrested me,” Dokubo-Asari stated, “my arrest reduced Nigeria’s oil production to 700,000 barrels per day, this time, it will reduce it to zero barrel, and we will match violence by violence, intrigues by intrigues, we are ready for them.”
He said if some of those calling for his arrest fail to carry out their threats, he will regard them as cowards.
The former President of Ijaw Youth Council (IYC) also vowed that Nigeria would become “history” if he is arrested.
He wondered why those now clamouring for his incarceration did not do the same when some northern leaders threatened to make the country ungovernable, “where the dog and baboon will soak in blood” and how there will be no more Nigeria, if a northern did not occupy Aso Rock Presidential Villa in 2015.
Dokubo-Asari said: “I stand by my statement which I made in my earlier press conference; there will be no peace, not only in the Niger Delta, but everywhere, if Goodluck Jonathan is not President by 2015.
