‘How Biafra Can Be Achieved Immediately’- Asari Dokubo - 4 years ago
Niger Delta ex-militant leader, Alhaji Asari Dokubo, has highlighted ways the Igbos and other ethnic groups seeking the actualization of a sovereign state called Biafra can achieve their dream sooner than expected. Asari called on Biafra agitators not to entertain fear in search of what he described as their legitimate right, adding that it is time for everyone to stand up and fight for what they believe in diplomatically. DAILYPOST had quoted the ex-militant saying that, asking him if he is a Biafran is like asking if his name is Asari Dokubo. In a follow up interview obtained by DAILYPOST on Youtube, Asari declared that at 53 years old, he has nothing to fear, adding that since death is inevitable for all men, it does not really matters to him when he dies. He called on Biafrans to start organizing street walks in the United Kingdom, United States and other parts of the world to share the plight of Biafrans to the whole world. He said, “Every one of us anywhere in the world, today, people are celebrating Trump but what diplomatic effort are we making that will direct Trump to continue the course of the Independent State of Biafra? Or are we just making noise on social media, are just making noise? “We must do the diplomatic street walk. We must be demonstrating it in the United States of America, Asia, Europe, everywhere. “We must keep the people in light about the issue of Biafra, about the plight of Biafra. And that is why, for the first time Goodluck [Jonathan] did something that I like, when he went to the American conference to talk about the Southern Kaduna people and so on. “That is a beginning, that’s a start. Other people should emulate that because it is a ploy to direct the attention of the people of the world to what is happening to the people of Biafra; what is happening to the people of Southern Kaduna; what is happening to the people of the Plateau. “It is a ploy and we must all stand up and move. For me if its only 3 of us, let it be. This is the right time to stand up. I’m 53 years now and no one knows when anyone will die. “No one knows when Asari Dokubo will die, no one knows when Buhari will die, no one knows when Nnamdi Kanu will die, Nobody knows when Uche [Madu] will die. But we surely will all die. Every one of us will die. So why are we afraid of death? Something that inevitable; something that will surely come.
