Asari Dokubo declares that not one grain of sand in the South will be given for RUGA


Ex-Niger Delta Militant Leader, Asari Dokubo, on Friday, July 19, disclosed that the South-South and South-East will not surrender even a grain of sand belonging to the region, for President Muhammadu Buhari’s RUGA project.

Although, suspended at the moment, Dokubo called on South-South and South-Easterners to return home, following threats from the Coalition of Northern Groups, CNGs.

TOS TV gathered that Asari spoke on the heels of the Coalition of Northern Groups and the Northern Elders Forum (NEF), asking the herdsmen to leave the South.

Dokubo who spoke during a meeting with the Leaders of Niger Delta States, in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, on Friday said: “We, the people of the Niger Delta today, resolved to be part and parcel of the actualisation of the United States of Biafra.

“What has brought us here today, is the dark cloud that is gathering. In 1967, we did not ask for war, war was imposed on us, and millions of our people were killed. Our properties were destroyed, and so many people until today are carrying the scars of that imposed war.

“Our people have not gone to Kano, Kebbi, Sokoto, Borno, to ask that land be forcefully given to us, or that our resources should be used to give us properties in the North.

“But Northern organisations and Northern individuals have come up to say we must surrender our land to them, to create colonies on our land. Are you going to allow that?

“We will not surrender one grain of sand of our sacred land to anybody. We will stand on our land and wait for you to come and carry out your threat, and inshallah by the grace of God, we will defeat you.

“We have heard that you have called your people to come back home. They should all go, we will assist them to leave, (because) this is what we have been looking for all along.

“We call on our people, Igbo, Ibibio, Ikwerre, Ijaw, return back home. If anything happens to you and these cowards spine on you, you would have yourself to blame. We would not continue to risk our integrity and our pride because of you, return home now.

“We extend a hand of fellowship to our brothers in the Middle-Belt, who are suffering the same pain and deprivation as we do. We are with you in your hours of grief and pain, and we will stand with you to the end.

“To our Yoruba brothers in Afenifere, and the Leader of Afenifere, whose daughter has been gruesomely murdered by these Gambari invaders, we condole with you, but this is the price we have to pay to wake up”, Dokubo said.
