We Will Bomb the North With Sophisticated Bombs – Asari Dokubo.
**the arrogance of Boko Haram is un-Islamic.
**the type of bomb they are using is ‘small small pikin bomb’.
**we don’t manufacture bomb, but we buy bombs and dynamites.
Dokubo warned that the spate of attacks by the Islamic sect was capable of leading the country into another civil war that can lead to mass destruction of lives and property.
Addressing the media yesterday in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital city, Dokubo warned of dire consequences if anything untoward happens to President Goodluck Jonathan.
“On this issue of Boko Haram, the North will lose. We are just waiting; they will push us to an extent where we will tell Goodluck Jonathan that you are on your own. But what will happen will be one that will be unimaginable in the history of this country”, he said.
According to the man who once headed militancy in the Niger Delta, “We will cut them (the Northerners) off from the world. We are capable of doing that. There will be no food and they will pay dearly for their actions.
This war, as I am talking, is no joke. There will be no national Army to prosecute. When the war starts, other ethnic groups like the Yoruba and Igbo will tell the North ‘you are on your own. We are saying that nothing must happen to Goodluck Jonathan because if anything happens to him, the world will know.
“The arrogance of Boko Haram is un-Islamic. The type of bomb they are using is ‘small small pikin bomb’. If we begin throwing bomb, nobody will stay in Abuja. We don’t manufacture bomb, but we buy bombs and dynamites.
I started armed struggle in the Niger Delta. It is because of Goodluck Jonathan that we are quiet.
“But very soon, we will not be able to guarantee our patience any more. If Ijaw people should retaliate, every household in the North will cry. It is the North that needs peace more than us. Everybody must impress it on them that they should sheathe their sword and drop their arrogance”.
On the face-off between ex-President Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida and leader of the Ijaw nation/First Republic Minister of Information over the Boko Haram menace, the NDPVF leader said IBB and former Head of State, General Muhammadu Buhari (retd), cannot do anything.
“I want to be fair to IBB and Buhari on the Boko Haram crisis. They have nothing to do and cannot do anything about it. But the fact remains that the political elite of which IBB and Buhari belongs have not been able to address the problem of Boko Haram. They cannot do anything because nobody wants to commit suicide. The Boko Haram people are just killing themselves but cannot kill us”.
