Video: APC cannot threaten us with violence, it will be war – Asari Dokubo


Former Niger Delta warlord, Asari Dokubo, on Thursday, said the declaration by members of the All Progressive Congress, APC, to disrupt elections in the state if the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, fails to enlist them for the 2019 gubernatorial, national and state assembly elections will not materialize.

Dokubo was reacting to press conference by members of the party where they had threatened that elections will not hold in the state if INEC fails to enlist them on the ballot.

INEC list of candidates for the presidential and national assembly candidates released on January 17 had names of members of the APC in Rivers State missing.

The commission was relying on an order issued by a Federal High Court in Port Harcourt which mandated the commission not to enlist members of the party for disobeying an order of a Rivers State High Court which nullified the congresses conducted by the party.

Dokubo in an angry video made available to theportcitynews said that whoever brings violence to the state will have a bitter taste of it.

He said that elections will hold in the state, adding that the APC rigged the 2016 National Assembly re-run elections in favour of Magnus Abe and Andrew Uchendu.

The warlord also chimed in on the trial of the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Walter Onnoghen, before the Code of Conduct Tribunal over false assets declaration, saying that it is not a crime for a Niger Deltan to have a huge amount of money in his account.
