Call Asari-Dokubo to order, MURIC tells FG



Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) yesterday warned the federal government to call the leader of Niger Delta People’s Volunteer Force (NDPVF), Alhaji Mujaheeden, to order.
MURIC accused Asari Dokubo of threating to make Nigeria ungovernable unless President Jonathan secures a second term ticket in the 2015 presidential election.
In a statement issued by its spokesman, Prof. Ishaq Akintola, it said: “We are greatly perturbed that a threat of this magnitude is emanating at a time so close to the 2015 election time.
“The Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) is constrained to ask President Jonathan if Asari Dokubo is speaking for the presidency or if he has the tacit approval of Mr. President,” it said.
“We call President Jonathan’s attention to the dangers inherent in threats issued publicly in a country as volatile as Nigeria.
“While this is not the first time such a threat is issued, we are bewildered by the silence and inaction of the security agencies each time Asari Dokubo issues one of his threats.
“We are shocked to our marrows that Nasir El-Rufai was harassed and finally detained for hours for allegedly making a ‘provocative’ statement just a few days ago whereas nothing happens when Asari Dokubo threatens law and order.
