Asari Dokubo Arrested over inciting comments

Thursday, February 06, 2014

 

Less than 24 hours after a group, Muslim Rights Concern, MURIC, called on security agents to arrest and caution the President of the Niger Delta Volunteer Force, Mujahid Dokubo-Asari, for repeatedly making inciting comments, the Department of State Security, DSSS, has heeded the call.

Mr. Dokubo-Asari was Thursday summoned to the DSS headquarters in Abuja, where he is being interrogated for comments believed to be capable of breaching the fragile peace the country currently enjoys.

The spokesperson of the SSS, Marilyn Ogar, was not available for comments. She did not answer or return calls. But Mr. Dokubo-Asari younger brother, Rex Asari, who also doubles as his personal assistant on media, said the Niger Delta activist is currently being interrogated by operatives.

“It is true,” the younger Asari said in response to our reporter’s enquiry at about 12.30 p.m Thursday. “He is being interogated as we speak.”

Mr. Dokubo-Asari was quoted to have said on Tuesday that he would make Nigeria ungovernable unless President Jonathan secures a second term ticket in the 2015 presidential election. He also reportedly asked politicians from the North to steer clear of the presidency.

UPDATE: Asari Dokubo has been released by SSS. He was released around 3:30pm
