If I’m arrested, Nigeria will be histroy – Dokubo-Asari
Dokubo-Asari, has dared the House of Representatives and leaders of
northern Nigeria to arrest him if they can.
Dokubo-Asari, who spoke with journalists on Wednesday evening in
Abuja, said he stood by his words that there would be no peace if
Jonathan is not reelected in 2015.
He was responding to calls by members of the House, Governor Babangida
Aliyu of Niger State and northern leaders, saying the leaders were
cowards if he was not arrested.
The former President of Ijaw Youth Council also added that any
attempt to arrest him would make Nigeria "a history", asking why those
calling for his arrest turned deaf ears when some northern leaders
like former Military Head of State Maj.-Gen Mohamadu Buhari, Alhaji
Lawal Kaita and a former member of the House of Representatives,
Farouk Aliyu, among others.
He said, "I stand by my statement which I made in my early press
conference. There will be no peace, not only in the Niger Delta, but
everywhere, if Goodluck Jonathan is not president by 2015.
