Press Release: Open Letter to the International Community

For more than one year now, our patriotic and esteemed leader Alhaji Mujahid Dokubo-Asari has been under the detention of the very dubious, satanic, corrupt and morally bankrupt forces that today lord over the contraption called Nigeria.


At the time of his arrest, he had gladly taken up the role of 'Peacemaker' in the Niger Delta and beyond providing a bridge between warring personalities, groups and communities. In spite of this, the hegemony that rules the Nigerian contraption thought it wise to criminally arrest and detain our leader and flag bearer of the Ijaw struggle.

Let us make this very clear. We do not and cannot beg for his release. As the flag bearer of the Ijaw and Niger Delta, and as a great grandson of the famous Kalabari warrior King Amachree, Alhaji Mujahid Dokubo-Asari has always known that persecutions, trials and dark clouds will always arise. We believe that his current travels are part of the dictates of his onerous calling. Great men have always passed that route.


We commend the efforts of the International Community especially the United States and Great Britain for recognizing the grievousness of the Niger Delta question. Through the efforts of progressive minded groups, organizations and persons in the United States of America, the griming degree of our pain, poverty and plight has become a subject of discussion on high profile desks.


However, we condemn in all fullness, the activities of dubious, sycophant and corrupt organizations such as GoodWorks International and the Leon H. Sullivan Foundation which have over time served as conduits for the frittering away of our monies without recourse to subtle remorse. The organizations have partnered with the corrupt regime of General Obasanjo to unleash on citizens of the Nigerian state criminally minded development initiatives such as The Obasanjo Library. These organizations have also connived with ChevronTexaco to siphon large amounts of monies in the name of creating programmes to improve the quality of lives of poor Niger Delta people.


In furtherance therefore, we demand the full closure and disruption of the activities of these satanic groups in the Niger Delta.


We also demand in all fullness, the unconditional release of Alhaji Mujahid Dokubo-Asari from the gallows of the Nigerian state.


Failure to accede to these demands will incur our wrath. We are poised to begin another round of grim hostilities on the Nigerian state and its imperialist collaborators. We condemn all those who seek to cheapen the Niger Delta struggle by resorting to commercial hostage taking. In the future, there shall be no hostage taking or keeping by our group or alliance members. IF in the circumstances that we are forced to take hostages, they shall merely be serving the purpose of human shields and will never be used as bargaining tools.


All future hostages that may be taken WILL be agents and collaborators of the Nigerian state.


This is our word for the moment.

The Struggle Continues
