– Asari Dokubo has accused agents of President Muhammadu Buhari and Kaduna governor Nasir El-Rufai of allegedly causing the unrest in the southern part of the northern state
– Dokubo condemns the attacks on Christians and charges them to retaliate against those killing them in Southern Kaduna
Mujahid Asari Dokubo, an ex-militant and leader of the Niger Delta Peoples Volunteer Force, has urged Christians in southern Kaduna to defend themselves in the recent killings in that region of the northern state.
The Punch reports that Asari Dokubo made the call in a statement by his spokesperson Rex Anighoro in Abuja.
He also condemned the killing of Christians and said the retaliation was needed to balance the terror in the region allegedly supervised by agents of state governor Nasir El Rufai and President Muhammadu Buhari.
The statement titled “Buhari is a Futa Jallon Jihadist” read: “The Muhammadu Buhari and El Rufai-enabled ongoing genocide in Southern Kaduna is a supremacist and neo-colonialist conquest on the minorities of Northern Nigeria and by extension on all minorities in Nigeria.
“Alhaji Mujahid Dokubo-Asari and the Niger Delta People Salvation Front and Niger Delta People Volunteer Force call all people of Southern Kaduna to defend themselves and balance the terror foisted on them by Buhari and El Rufai’s agents.
“We call on all minorities in the North and across the Nigerian union to mobilise support for the people of Southern Kaduna earmarked for extermination by the Gambari and Futa Jallon expansionists.
“Alhaji Mujahid Dokubo-Asari and the Niger Delta People Salvation Front and Niger Delta People Volunteer Force stand with the people of Southern Kaduna.”
Meanwhile, Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project has sued the Nigerian government to court over the killings in Kaduna state.
The group is said to have petitioned renowned human rights activist Ms. Agnes Callamard.
