 Asari Dokubo: The Chief Rich Toad in the Creek

It is a well known fact that illiteracy is a dangerous disease. And when combined with poverty, it possesses the proneness of making an individual sell oneself and rights, just to be saved from its ravaging scourge. Such a vornurable person may not mind sacrificing friends or other members of his family, just to break free from the claws of  poverty, without remembering that a good name is better than silver and gold.

Asari Dokubo’s recent outbursts on live videos is a justification to one of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu’s frequent sayings, that "a poor and hungry man cannot be a freedom fighter".  Claiming to be called a freedom fighter is not the problem, but remaining consistent is. Sometimes, the person might appear to be genuine, but his oppositions can buy him over with just any amount of money, because he is poor and his resolved is weak. This case is not new to us in this struggle for the freedom of Biafra restoration as we have seen it happen to Chief Ralph Uwazulike and his Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State Of Biafra (MASSOB), and many others.

Asari Dokubo who was born in Porthacourt on June 1st 1964 got admission into The University of Calabar where he was studying law after his secondary school education. At the university, Asari became a killer cultist, flirting around with girls and he never got the time to study his books. He usually fails his courses every semester and the lecturers would continue to push and promote him until he got to 300 level, where the school finally rejected him for being a dullard cultist. He then, abandoned his law course, left the school and went to Rivers State University of Science and Technology to study sciences. 

As you might have rightly gazed, failure is now in his blood and so he would continue to fail. He was never promoted to 400 level in his new school when he hanged his booths on schooling. Before then, he had earned himself a rank in cultism and killings, and then decided to exploit his cultism skills in other to money.

He left his new school and formed a militant group, when he realized that such was going to yield. He first established the Ijaw Youth Council as a political group but money was not coming from it. He then established the Niger Delta People’s Volunteer Force (NDPVF) as a militant wing, which later made him the Creek Rich Toad that he is bragging about today.

Before then, president Olusegun Obasanjo had placed him in prison to rot but was lucky that after the reign of Obasanjo, president Umaru Musa Yar’Adua got him released and signed with him the amnesty program, which was due for them to stop destroying crude oil pipelines. It further placed him and his notorious gang on salary in 2007. But when president Buhari came in, he threatened them with military force and  immediately ended the amnesty program.

Asari and his gang then regrouped and resumed the destruction of pipelines again. That was when president Buhari decided to give him the lucrative job; Chief Pipeline Guard (CPG), which had turned him to a rich Toad in the creek. With the huge money he made as salary from the safeguarding of pipelines,  Alhaji Asari Dokubo Nationalised to Benin Republic after abandoning his vision for the liberation of his Niger Delta People, and he has no single investment to offer Jobs opportunity to his suffering region, from where he is scooping his wealth. Rather, all his investments including building of a university are all done in the Republic of Benin, where he nationalised. 

Recall what the leader of the Indigenous People Of Biafra(IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu previously said, "a hungry man cannot be a freedom fighter". No wonder Asari Dokubo has abandoned freedom fighting and have become a mere security guard to pipelines for those oppressing his people. Indeed, illiteracy is a terrible disease.

Sooner or later, he will come to the understanding of a big failure that he is.
