Self-acclaimed warlord and Leader of the Niger Delta People’s Volunteer Force (NDPVF), Mujahid Asari Dokubo on Wednesday, April 1, 2015 issued a warning, stating that he and other ex-militants might resume militancy following the victory of General Muhammadu Buhari in the Saturday, March 28, 2015 presidential election.

Speaking via a statement issued by his spokesman Rex Anighoro, Dokubo said the election showed that the majority ethnic groups were unfair to the minorities. He further alleged a gang up by the North and South Western part of the country against the South East and South South regions.

Dokubo also expressed fears that the government of General Buhari might be vicious and repressive.

He said: “The conditions that advanced the need to embrace the creeks have been sadly re-energised. It is clear that a vicious government who may maim and murder the voice of the so-called minorities may have just been birthed.

“Indeed integration is non-existent as regional gang-ups and supremacy is symbolic with this victory.”

“While President Jonathan enjoys his moments and basks in the euphoria of a new world-renowned statesman having congratulated Muhammadu Buhari, we must quickly be reminded that our struggle was never about Jonathan or about the presidency.

“President Jonathan is an establishment beneficiary of our struggle, our sweat and blood that many bled and died for. He was never in the struggle and he can never wish away our collective march for statesmanship.

“Yes indeed, to an extent, he was a mitigating factor in self-determination pursuit as we went on sabbatical. This mitigation he seems to have willingly repudiated. The days coming will be critical. We shall study all the conditions and consult widely before determining the way forward for our collective existence and survival as a people. The days coming shall either drive the quest of integration or further separate us.”
