Nov 26, 2013 – Asari Dokubo Arrested In Cotonou Benin Republic, Lawyer Begs Nigeria For Intervention

Former Niger Delta militant leader, Asari Dokubo who dumped his Nigerian citizenship for Benin Republic’s has been arrested in Cotonou.

According to his lawyer Mr Festus Keyamo, Asari Dokubo’s arrest took place today around 2pm in Cotonou. He was arrested by the Police at Lubeleyi roundabout for allegedly carrying out an illegitimate business.

“He was picked up around the Lubeleyi roundabout and taken to an unknown destination,” Asari’s lawyer, Festus Keyamo said.

According to Keyamo, his client didn’t do anything illegal before his sudden arrest in the West African country today. He has been living there for so many years. It’s like home to him.

Asari’s lawyer further said his client has an academy, schools and several mansions in Benin Republic.

“All these places have been searched as at this evening and nothing incriminating was found,” Keyamo said.

He also said Asari Dokubo’s arrest is likely a plan by some politicians in Nigeria in alliance with Benin Republic government to keep him away from Nigeria as 2015 election approaches.

“We call on the Nigerian government to immediately intervene and ensure that no harm befalls Alhaji Dokubo-Asari and to use all diplomatic means to secure his immediate release and safe return to Nigeria,” he said.

Last year, Asari Dokubo renounced his Nigerian citizenship as he embraced Benin Republic’s citizenship months after converting to Islam.

How do we expect Nigeria to intervene when he is no more a citizen.

Asari Dokubo is the same man who said there will be bloodshed in Nigeria come 2015 if President Jonathan is not re-elected.

Hope they release him on time for the sake of his family and children.

  1. Please Nigeria should not help Asari Dokubo
    Why did he renounce his citizenship in the first place
    It will be a foolish decision if Nigeria helps to secure his release

  2. What an appeal from Asari Dokubo’s barrister -Festus Keyamu ! Does he know what he is saying ? Asari Dokubo is no more a Nigerian, he has been arrested in his adopted Country for the offence he, Keyamu does not know. Dolawyers speculate? So Festus Keyamu wants his friend/client to come to Nigeria to do what? Let the sleeping dog lies Mr keyamu.

  11. He is a prodigal son and he has since dumped Nigerian citizenship for that of Benin Republic. So, what is our business with him? He is planning blood shed for innocent Nigerians come 2015 if GEJ is not re-elected. I know God will settle his matter before then unless he(Asari) repented.

Asari, you have run like a man and finished it like a woman, how are the mighty fallen, upon all your brillent perfomances in the creak of Niger Delta, that subsiquently brought Goodluck to power and in turn open the eyes of the creak boys, had it been that you denouced your Nigerian Citizenship and went for Switzerland, United States, Canada, it will be more better and manageable, than Benin republic, for you to leave your fatherland, your ascentral home, your fore fathers will be pursuering around from their graves, i swore instead of me to look for citizenship of Benin repblic, i better applied for Iraq citizenship, very wicked, bon se tua que demande la trouble, Bon chance camarade.may be your adviser never advised you well, i live in french country for years and i knew what they are upto, only good shoes you wear will make them to suspect you as a bad drug dealer or a ritualist, you are lucky they they poplution did not acused you of stealing human organ and burn you to death.
