Arewa youths warn Asari Dokubo over odd remarks against Northern leaders
In defence of their political and religious leaders, the Arewa Northern groups have warned the leader of the Niger Delta Volunteer Force, Alhaji Asari Dokubo, to desist from making uncomplimentary remarks against them.
The groups, Arewa Citizens Action for Change (ACAC) and Arewa Youth Development Foundation (AYDF) further urged President Goodluck Jonathan to call Asari to order.
In a statement issued by ACAC Director, Mallam Aminu Adam, and AYDF National President, Mallam Ali Usman, the groups said they “have observed with great concern the persistent, unrestrained verbal attacks on the generality of the people of Northern Nigeria and their interests by Ijaw community’s trouble-shooter, Asari Dokubo.”
“Most recently, Dokubo, perhaps emboldened by government’s backing, has graduated to attacking the revered Sultan of Sokoto, the distinguished Emir of Kano and respected leaders like Generals Muhammadu Buhari and Ibrahim Babangida, and also our great politicians, Atiku Abubakar and Lawal Kaita”. The group had said cautioning that if nothing is done about Asari’s persistent verbal attacks, the country will pay for it dearly.
