Nov 30, 2013 – President Jonathan & Asari Dokubo From Ijaw Ethnic Group: How Nigerian President Ordered The Release Of A Criminal  From Benin Republic Jail

Asari Dokubo: How Nigerian President Jonathan Orders A Criminal Released Due To Ethnic Relation

On Tuesday, the master of crime in the oil-rich Niger-Delta region was arrested for his involvement in a string of criminal activities in Benin republic and on Thursday after a personal intervention by the President Of The Federal Republic Of Nigeria, Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, he was released from Cotonou jail without condition.

President Jonathan and Asari Dokubo are from the Ijaw ethnic group. Asari is best known for staging attacks on oil infrastructure in the Niger Delta swampy creeks, that drove up oil prices to record highs in 2004.

“It was under pressure from the Nigerian head of state that the authorities freed the rebel chief on Friday at around midday,” said Benjamin Agon, spokesman for Benin’s foreign affairs department.

Benin police declined to comment but Asari’s lawyer Festus Keyamo confirmed the release and said his client was now in the Nigerian capital Abuja.

There was no immediate comment from the Nigerian government on the case, except that it denied using the presidential jet to fly Dokubo back to Abuja.

Diplomats told Reuters this week that Cotonou had been investigating Asari’s business interests in Benin, a tiny cotton producing country, bordering Nigeria.

One of the diplomats said Asari’s group, the Niger Delta People’s Volunteer Force, had been suspected of lending support to criminal activities in the Delta.

Asari’s Niger Delta People’s Volunteer Force reached a peace deal with the Nigerian government in 2004.

However, oil production in the region is frequently disrupted by criminal gangs who tap crude from pipelines for local refining or sell it onto large tankers for export.

Imagine a president aiding the release of a criminal due to ethnic relation.

Nigeria’s fate is in God’s hand.

    That is why he is the dumbest president in the history of Nigeria

    like I said on the other forum. The Benin police should have shot him 1st then later construct a story through their force PRO. They sure have a lot to learn from us. Now he’s back to Abuja and is being given the prodigal son’s treatment.

    We all know Jonathan is the grand patron of criminality and corruption, we don’t need this to know it. We have always known our leader is a criminal.

    The thug was bunkering oil and recycling the money thru arms smuggling for their criminal activities in the Naija Delta. He’s raising funds for 2015 election/war if they lose, and the President is behind him that’s the reason they intervened and kept mum. Asari can never be up to any good, whatever he did in Benin Republic is against their Law, those Gerndarmes should have shot him and tossed his fat ass into the river… it would be one less creek crook for Nigerians to worry about. Nonsense!

    Jonathan is a selfish President
    He aided the release of Asari due to his 2015 Presidential ambition and he has failed. Nigerians will not vote him in again MARK MY WORDS

    You people talk before thinking if not how would you call an agitator a criminal when the main criminals are in Abuja wearing agbada and owning oil wells when the main oil producers are suffering in abject poverty. People think before you talk or write anything. God less Nigeria.

    first of all, let me start by remindin ednut, rashid & walata dat ur votes won’t count in 2015, so save ur urselves d strenght of tinking u hav d power to decid who becomes Nigerians next president. As for our great niger delta hero Asari, the oil is owned by niger delta, so he is merely colectin what he’s. If u dnt lik it, go hug transformer.

    I am from the east. Asari is a freedom. Every southerner should be proud of Asari Dokubo.He is a hero to say the least. His activity in naija is not in any different from that of Ojukwu;Adaka Boro;massob; Afenifere; Arewa;Dr.junaid mohammed including the role being played by self appointed tribal lord chief femi fani kayode. So what make Asari different.As regards his arrest in Benin is all politics. Till today no one know his offence, so dont comment on matters without the facts

    I quite agree with Okonkwo. All those accusing Asari Dokubo of criminality what type of crime has he committed? The President as some people may think is not a fool, he attained the standard of education for him to know what he is doing. Asare’s arrest, l think was politically motivated. There is nothing wrong being our brothers keepers, the President has done nothing wrong. It is attitudes such as this, that is why our governments find it difficult to intervene when Nigerians are in trouble abroad and negative comments like this make some other countries treat us like nonentities.
