Former Militant Leader, Mujahid Asari Dokubo, has called for the unconditional release of two of his cousins allegedly arrested on Monday by the Nigerian Army.
Asari Dokubo alleged that soldiers stormed his Opuama home in Harris Town, in Asari-Toru local government area of Rivers in four trucks and whisked them away to the barracks of the 6 Division of the Nigerian Army in Port Harcourt.
”They left my home planting fear in the minds of members of my family,” the former warlord added.
According to Asari Dokubo, the Army has already prepared “trumped up charges against one of my cousins as being one of the Boko Haram insurgents who escaped from the North East region of the country. They took two of my cousins away. Now, I sent somebody to the Barracks, but he was told that they are charging Muhammed Asari as somebody who escaped from Boko Haram.
“How can an Ijaw man be a member of Boko Haram? I am sending my lawyer again to meet them. I learnt they have handed him them over to military Police.”
