BREAKING NEWS: SSS Arrests Niger-Delta Warlord Asari DokuboFeatured, Latest News, News Thursday, February 6th, 2014

The State Security Service (SSS) has arrested Mujahideen Asari-Dokubo.
African Examiner gathered that the arrest of the former Niger-Delta activist may be connected to his recent inciting comments about the 2015 elections.
He had told a Television station in Lagos that: “If it is war the North wants, we are ready for them because Jonathan must complete the mandatory constitutionally allowable two terms of eight years. At home, we have regrouped and we have put our people at alert.
“In less than one hour, the way we would strike, the world will be shocked. If anybody does anything against Jonathan, we will retaliate. What we will do will shock the whole world. We will cripple the economy of the country not only in the creeks, but also on the nation’s territorial waters, no vessel will be allowed to enter Nigeria’s territorial waters.
“Let them not try anything. If they abuse Jonathan, there is no problem, he is their President but anything that will affect the interest of the Ijaw people and the interest of the entire people of the Niger Delta will be resisted at any cost.”
“Let them go and sleep in their houses. If they don’t, they are looking for trouble and we are going to give it to them. It will make better sense if APC picks its presidential candidate from the South- South. With that, there will be no battle for us to fight and it will make it easier for us. Whichever way it goes, it will enable us to continue our right of uninterrupted rule of eight years, which is the minimum constitutional requirement.
“They cannot take that from the South-South and we will not accept it because every part of the country must have equal access to the various institutions of government, especially at the federal level”
Recall that APC had wondered if SSS was hibernating for not arresting the Niger-Delta warlord for making those statements even when the agency recently arrested the Former FCT Minister and APC chieftain Malam Nasir El-Rufai over similar allegation of making inciting statement about 2015 elections.
