Leader of the defunct militant group, Niger Delta People Volunteer Force, NDPVF Alhaji Asari Dokubo has made a clarion to the people of Southern Kaduna to defend themselves against what he alleges to be a terrorist attack launched on them by President Muhammadu Buhari and Governor, Nasir El- Rufai.
In a statement signed by Asari and released by his spokesperson, Comrade Rex Anighoro it reads:
“The Muhammadu Buhari and El Rufai enabled ongoing Genocide in Southern Kaduna is a Supremacist and Neo Colonialist Conquest on the minorities of Northern Nigeria and by extension on all Minorities in Nigeria.”
“Alhaji Mujahid Dokubo Asari and the Niger Delta People Salvation Front cum Niger Delta People Volunteer Force (NDPSF/NDPVF) call all people of Southern Kaduna to defend themselves and balance the terror foisted on them by Buhari and El Rufai agents.”
“We call on all Minorities in the North and across the Nigerian Union to mobilize support for the people of Southern Kaduna earmarked for extermination by the Gambari and Futa Jallon Expansionist.”
“Alhaji Mujahid Dokubo Asari and the Niger Delta People Salvation Front cum Niger Delta People Volunteer Force (NDPSF /NDPVF ) stand with the People of Southern Kaduna.”
Southern Kaduna has been enmeshed in crises, following clashes between Fulani herdsmen and local residents.
Just recently, the Catholic Archdiocese of Kafanchan had claimed that no fewer 800 persons lost their lives in the recent crisis that broke out in Southern Kaduna.
Reacting to the Southern Kaduna crisis, Dokubo urged minorities in the northern part of the country to mobilize support for people of the area.
The Presidency has come under intense criticism for its silence over the ongoing massacre in Kaduna State with Presidential spokesman Femi Adeshina claiming that the security of a State was not the business of the President.
