The opposition All Progressives Congress (APC) has petitioned the Acting Inspector General of Police (IGP), Suleimon Abba, over the attack threat by the repented militant and leader of the Niger Delta Peoples Volunteer Force (NDPVF), Mujahid Asari-Dokubo against its National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed.
The petition which was signed by the party’s National Secretary, Hon. Mai Mala Buni was dated October 17, 2014, (certified received copy) sent to ARICAN EXAMINER Tuesday, (October 21, 2014), stressed it found Asari – Dokubo’s threat “totally abhorring, dangerous, unacceptable and uncivilized” and therefore wished to request the acting IGP to call him to order, as well as invite him to “explain what he means by his threat to resort to self –help”.
APC which copied the petition titled: THREAT OF VIOLENCE BY MUJAHID ASARI –DOKUBO AGAINST APC NATIONAL PUBLICITY SECRETARY to: President Goodluck Jonathan; Senate President, David Mark; Speaker of the House of the Representatives, Hon. Aminu Tambuwal; Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Anyim Pius Anyim; the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Mohammed Adoke and Director General of the Department of the States Security Services (DSS), stated it attached a copy of the interview granted by Asari – Dokubo to an online news tittle (not AFRICAN EXAMINER).
It would be recalled the former Niger Delta militant leader in an interview published in an online newspaper, on Friday, October 17, 2014, threatened to sue APC National Publicity Secretary and should the court fail to deliver justice, he would resort to self – help by “using hands and other means to deal with Mr. Mohammed”.
Asari – Dokubo’s self help threat came following a press statement dated October 8, 2014, issued by Alhaji Mohammed, asking the Federal government to explain the reported his presence on the jet that ferried the sum of $9.3 Million cash to South Africa to purchase arms.
