IPOB, MASSOB flay Dokubo for using Kanu as bait to get oil contracts from Tinubu 

The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) have chided ex-militant leader, Alhaji Asari Dokubo, for throwing  Mazi Nnamdi Kanu under the bus as he seeks favors from President Bola Tinubu.

On Sunday, IPOB flayed Dokubo for calling on Tinubu to continue to keep its leader, Kanu, and promising to throw his complete support to Tinubu.

A statement by IPOB’s spokesman, Emma Powerful, pointed out that Dokubo was angling for a contract to protect oil pipelines and warned Dokubo to stop believing that he could use Kanu’s “illegal detention” to canvass for an oil contracts.

According to Powerful, “Kanu has never killed anyone and IPOB is not in the league of militants and oil pipeline guards. It’s unfortunate that those who are supposed to be in the decision-making of the oil explorations in their region are guarding the oil pipelines for the oppressors and their children.

“Those bent on killing each other for the oil pipeline contracts are in the same way bent on sabotaging those fighting to liberate them from decades of slavery.

“Cajoling IPOB leader cannot secure you contracts instead that will bring you down. In a sane society, such militants would have been in jail, but Nigeria is a country where thugs, terrorists, and militants are respected and rewarded better than university professors.

“We have two sets of militants in Niger Delta. Some are fighting for resource control to better their region while some are fighting to enrich themselves through Federal Government sponsored oil contracts and bunkering as the region is exploited.

“IPOB is not on the same mission as any of the militant groups. IPOB headed by Nnamdi Kanu is fighting for total emancipation and independence of Biafra where resources will be controlled by and used for Biafrans.”

Meanwhile, the leader of the Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra, (MASSOB), Uchenna Madu described Dokubo as an economic saboteur.

Madu said: “Dokubo should be ashamed of himself, for biting the finger that fed him, selling his conscience against the collective interest of the Eastern region just to get relevance from the Federal Government, he fought against and killed hundreds of military and security agents.

“MASSOB wishes to remind Dokubo how himself and his militant criminal boys destroyed and vandalised petroleum pipelines in the name of self-determination agitation for Ijaw people.
