HURIWA wants Buhari arrested over Asari-Dokubo’s ‘Army’

Civil rights advocacy group, Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria, (HURIWA), has called for the arrest and prosecution of former President Muhammadu Buhari, for allegedly secretly endorsing and commissioning of a mercenary “army” operated by an ex-Niger Delta militant leader, Mujahid Asari-Dokubo.

The group which made the call on Tuesday, claimed it had discovered that the mercenaries run by Dokubo was secretly commissioned by Buhari to replace the “properly constituted and constitutionally recognized Nigerian Army.”

In the statement issued by its National Coordinator, Comrade Emmanuel Onwubiko, HURIWA, also called on the Department of State Services (DSS) and other relevant security agencies to arrest Dokubo over “illegal possession of firearms he brandished in viral videos and over his suspected link to the violent phenomenon of unknown gunmen in the South-East.”
