Arrest Asari Dokubo, Tompolo, Boyloaf, Others Now- TY Danjuma

One-time Minister of Defence turned businessman and philanthropist, Gen. Theophilus Danjuma has called for arrest of all the Niger Delta militants who met at the Bayeslsa State Government House last Saturday and threatened war if current Nigerian President, Goodluck Ebele Jonathan loses the February 14, 2015 elections.
The usually taciturn former General  made the demand in Kano in the presence of Kano State Governor, Alhaji Rabi’u Kwankwaso while commissioning the multi-billion naira Kwakwasiya City being built by the state government.
General Danjuma, a former Chief of Army Staff who praised the Governor for his masses-oriented programme and his commitment to good governance was obviously angered by the threat of the militants against the entire nation.
Referring to the war threat as reckless, he noted that their statement was inimical to national unity but was capable of plunging the country into war.
In his words ” “You should arrest Asari Dokubo, Tompolo, Boylop and other Niger Delta militants for making reckless statements, which in any way does not mean keeping Nigeria as one entity and creating war situation,” He therefore called on the security agencies and the government to arrest them immediately.
This call by General Danjuma came against the backdrop of a meeting where the leader of the Niger Delta Peoples Volunteer Force ( NDPVF) Mujahid Dokubo-Asari; Victor Ben Ebikabowei, aka, Boy Loaf; Government Ekpudomenowei, aka, Tompolo made  what could be termed provocative pronuncements.
The former militant leaders and their followers threatened to unleash violence on the country and take back Niger Delta oil should the president lose the election. They also said any attempt to dethrone Mr. Jonathan would be seen as a direct attack on the Ijaw nation.
It should be said that since the statement was made public no agency of government or the presidency has reacted.
