The Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra, MASSOB, on Wednesday lashed out at former Niger Delta militant leader, Asari Dokubo over his latest comment that Igbos are slaves.
MASSOB’s leader, Uchenna Madu, said Dokubo can never be accorded the role of a hero despite allegedly running errands for Yoruba, Hausa, and Fulani people.
Madu described Dokubo as an “expired animal” for saying the Kalabari and Ijaw people conquered the Igbos.
A statement by Madu reads: “This unwarranted verbal attack on Ndigbo has awakened our spirit of lionism and bravery.
“In the traditional history of conquest, warfare, and bravery of Ndigbo and Ijaw people, it is on record that Ijaw people with their allies have never achieved 7% of the conquest, dominion and domination of what Ndigbo have achieved both in the pre-colonial era and in this modern era.
“Asari Dokubo, in his bourgeois stupidity, forgot that it was Ndigbo that stopped the British colonial rulers from changing and deleting the native names and cultural heritages of the Ijaw people during the conquest of the British colonial adventure.
“Dokubo Asari has once again proved his low mentality and puff-puff nature.
“That Ijaw people are neighbors to Ndigbo and that Ndigbo treats them as brothers and sisters do not warrant competing with Ndigbo in every sphere of life, both nationally and globally. Even the Hausas, Yorubas, and Fulanis generally see the Ijaw people as an extension of Ndigbo from the Eastern region.
“MASSOB reminds Dokubo Asari that no amount of his loyalty and errand boyish services to Yoruba, Hausa, and Fulanis of biased Nigeria will make him a hero or accord him celebrated recognition because the federal government hates Ijaws more than Ndigbo.
“We remind him about his elder brothers, Isaac Adaka Boro, Ken Saro Wiwa, and Henry Okah, their overwhelming loyalty and services to Nigeria against Ndigbo perished with them. They are forgotten because evil can never be celebrated.”
