Leader of the Niger Delta People’s Volunteer Force (NDPVF), Alhaji Asari Dokubo has asked the people of the South-South region to prepare for war, even as he said, the ongoing onslaught by Boko Haram is designed to unleash terror on the people of the region.
He warned: “Goodluck no get mouth to say he won’t contest the next election. I will be 50 years on the first of June, I have twenty children and all my children from the age of ten can shoot gun, all my children are trained in martial arts, they can disable an able man. We must prepare for it, now I have gone back to the village because a war is coming, the time of ‘no victor, no vanquish is gone’, this time it is ‘no retreat, no surrender’.”
Asari who spoke at the 10th annual Major Isaac Adaka Boro Public Lecture in Ughelli, Delta State, called on the different ethnic nationalities in the region to unite to fight the invasion of the northern imperialists.
He emphasized that the growing onslaught of the Boko Haram is a war rehearsal of the ‘Fulani feudalist’ against the region which produced the country’s economy mainstay
He said that the people of the region must act fast to foil any attempt to be enslaved, adding: “What Boko Haram is doing is military exercise, its war rehearsals in the north. They are coming down. Sorry for Urhobo , sorry for Benin , sorry for Esan land , sorry for Isoko land, na here dem go pass come meet Ijaw people.
“Ijaws alone cannot fight this battle, we are not strong enough to fight this battle, we need the collective strength of every one of us, and this is the last battle.”
