Asari Dokubo says ‘Nnamdi Kanu is empty in the head’

Dokubo and Kanu have been hurling insults at themselves in recent times.

Niger Delta militant and leader of the Niger Delta Peoples Salvation Force (NDPSF), Asari Dokubo, has described Nnamdi Kanu as a tyrannical airhead.

Kanu, who leads the outlawed Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB), was arrested in Kenya in June and extradited to Nigeria.

He was on the run for four years, after his home was invaded by security personnel.

Dokubo has maintained that Kanu’s Biafra separatist agitation is a fraudulent ego trip; and that the Ijaw or south-south region shouldn’t be roped into Kanu’s Biafra conversation because the region is not part of Kanu’s Biafra.

“I have no business in his IPOB as long as it does not concern Biafra,” Dokubo says on AriseTV, adding erroneously that an Ijaw man coined Biafra and was the first to move a motion for a Biafra Republic in the 1960s.

He also says Kanu’s Biafra struggle is tyrannical because it seeks to alienate persons of other religions like Islam.

“I am not a Jew. I am not an Igbo man. Biafra is not an Igbo territory. Nnamdi Kanu is empty in the head,” Dokubo fumes.

In June, Dokubo called Kanu a criminal and conman.

Nigerian authorities arrested Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of a separatist movement active in the nation’s southeastern region.

Kanu, who fled Nigeria in 2018 while on trial for treason, is currently at the Federal High Court in Abuja, Umar Gwandu, spokesman for Attorney-General Abubakar Malami, said by phone.

The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra movement,

known as IPOB, has been returned to Nigeria “to continue facing trial after disappearing when on bail,” Malami told reporters on Tuesday.

Kanu, who arrived in the West African nation on June 27, is “accused of engaging in subversive activities that include inciting violence through television, radio and online broadcasts against the Nigerian state and institutions,” he said.

Neither Malami nor Gwandu revealed in which country Kanu was detained before being extradited. The IPOB leader was “intercepted through the collaborative effor

ts of the Nigerian intelligence and security services,” Malami said.

Nigeria’s government declared IPOB a terrorist group in 2017 and has blamed recent attacks targeting security agents in southeastern Nigeria on the group’s armed wing.
