Ex-Niger Delta militant leader, Mujahid Asari Dokubo, has reacted to T.Y. Danjuma’s call that Nigerians should “rise and defend themselves” from killer herdsmen.
In a video posted on his Facebook page, Dokubo commended Danjuma for his stance, and advised the national leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Tinubu to speak up.
Dokubo wondered how long Tinubu would keep quiet, adding that Yoruba leaders like Obafemi Awolowo would not have remained quiet.
According to him, “I’m so happy with Danjuma’s comment. Few weeks ago, I talked about some of our political elites including Danjuma and he has roared, there is an earthquake, everywhere is unsettled.
“We have to appreciate some of this people that have conquered their fears. He spoke the mind of those who are too afraid to speak.
“This is a challenge to people like Tinubu. How long will you be quiet and eat this ‘sh*t.’
“Tinubu stand up and fight for your people if you claim you are a leader. I don’t think Awolowo would have accepted this if he was alive. The worst of Yoruba leaders would not have accepted what you are taking by putting the race to riddle and shame.
“Danjuma, you have spoken our mind and we are going to respond in the most equal proportion. If those people, herdsmen, think they can kill why won’t others kill them.
“They are not from our land but they are killing us, kill them back,” the former militant leader asserted.
