The leader of the Niger Delta Peoples Salvation Force (NDPSF), Asari Dokubo has revealed why the people in the South-East still obey the sit-at-home order by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
Asari Dokubo Condemns IPOB’s Sit-At-Home Order
Speaking on Sunday during a Facebook live, Dokubo that people still obey the order out of fear of being killed, and not because they love the IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu.
He said, “IPOB said Igbo people should not go about their business; they should no go to school. So, if we Igbos no longer go about our business and go to school, what else should we be doing? That’s why all the boys are going into fraud.
“If people sit at home, it is that they are afraid of you people. It is not because you people are powerful. They don’t know you people are nothing.
“People are afraid of being killed, that’s why they’ve continued to sit at home; not because they love Nnamdi Kanu. Why is there no sit-at-home in Port Harcourt, Calabar, Uyo? It is because the government of these places are saying ‘don’t ever come here’.
“Very soon, Igbos will come out and say ‘it is okay; our old women are starving; they can’t go to the farm, markets’. At Onitsha market, people are afraid of doing businesses because they are scared of being killed.”
Dokubo also said he was not involved in the process that led to Kanu’s extradition from Kenya.
He said, “IPOB said I was the one that sold them out, that I betrayed them, am not the one who said it. They are also the ones that said I betrayed their leader in Kenya.
“I don’t know where Nnamdi Kanu was living. I don’t know where he took off from. They said I was the person who gave him up.
“You accused me of betrayal. I am not a member of your organisation. We are enemies. What do enemies do? They fight and kill each other until there’s a platform for reconciliation.”
KanyiDaily recalls that Asari Dokubo had declared himself as the leader of the new Biafra de facto Customary Government (BCG), saying nobody can stop him.
