Deputy Minority Leader of the House of Representatives, Rep. Suleiman Abdurahman Kawu Sumaila (APC Kano), has asked the security agencies to as a matter of urgency investigate the militant leader, Mujahid Asari Dokubo and charge him to court for inciting the public.
Reacting to a press briefing by Dokubo who alleged that General Muhammadu Buhari was responsible for the twin bomb blast that nearly took his life and that of Sheik Dahiru Bauchi in Kaduna,and planned the attacks and tried to take his own life,
Rep Sumaila said President Jonathan’s continued silence on the allegations against Buhari by Dokubo will make people to believe that indeed, he spoke for him.
“Ordinarily, characters like Dokubo should be cooling their heads in jail for the many sins they have committed against the Nigerian state, but today they are not only walking as free men, but they are accorded with state protection and cover by the Jonathan administration. In this, we do not need a soothsayer to tell us that indeed, Asari Dokubo has been speaking the mind of Jonathan and in most cases he spoke on his behalf and at his behest.
He said “For two years, Dokubo has been singing war songs, pouring venoms on everyone else who disagreed with the Goodluck Jonathan government. While he continue to run down well respected leaders and statesmen and castigate the entire northern region, neither president Goodluck Jonathan nor any of the leaders from the south south region has cared to caution him or call him to order.
He noted that by his utterances, attitudes, arrogance and actions do not in any way portray him as a true Muslim who loves peace. “Dokubo is one of those who use the name of Islam for his selfish motive and commit all manner of atrocities.
According to him, “his penchant for violence is unislamic because the Holy prophet said anyone who preaches violence is not with us,this is why I am questioning the sincerity of Dokubo’s belief in Islam. We are very much suspecting that Asari Dokubo is one of those who joined Islam in order to give it a bad name because his attitudes are in total variance with the teaching and tenets of Islam.
Sumaila said their suspicion that indeed, the Boko Haram violence is being perpetrated by some persons who use Islam but are actually not true and genuine Muslims themselves is confirmed with this development.
