Dokubo Has No Links With Boko Haram– Ijaw Activist

Ijaw activist, Rosebella Jackson, has dispelled claims in some quarters linking the Founder of the Niger Delta Volunteer Force, Alhaji Mujahid Asari Dokubo, to a network of Islamic terrorists, including the Boko Haram.

There have been insinuations that Dokubo was working for some Islamic fundamentalists and being used to spy on Christians as well as to leak information to them for co-ordinated violent attacks.

It was also alleged that Dokubo was converting willing Niger Deltans into Islam and sending them for training on suicide bombing and handling of weapons of mass destruction in Kuwait and other Islamic countries.

But Jackson dismissed the allegations, describing them as the “figments of the imagination of Dokubo’s detractors.”

She spoke in an interview on Monday that it was a “smear campaign” carried out against the former President of the Ijaw Youth Council in order to give him a bad name.

“Asari is not in any way used by Muslims at all and he has never sent any Niger Deltan to Kuwait or other Muslim nations for study,” Jackson said.

She said Dokubo understands the Islamic faith very well, adding that he would never engage in dastardly acts like some religious fanatics.

She urged religious leaders to properly understudy Dokubo before making statements that could put his life in danger.

Describing Dokubo as a peace-loving man, she said Dokubo has indigent students of Igbo, Hausa and Yoruba origin in his scholarship scheme.

“Asari has a school where he has children of Hausa, Igbo and Yoruba under his scholarship. He is not a violent person,” she said.
