Freedom fighter, Alhaji Asari Dokubo, has thrown his weight behind Biafra as he commended the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu for taking a stand in the struggle for the actualization of Biafra.
In an interview shared on Youtube, he berated those in the South-South and South-East who deny being Biafran, saying that anyone in the South-south and South-East region of the country, who denies Biafra and its struggle, is only doing so due to fear of death or incarceration.
Alhaji Asari Dokubo added that the many Igbos, Ijaws and other tribes in the “Biafran land” who have refused to identify with the on-going struggle, are doing so out of fear that the Nigerian state will deny them their rights. But when success has been achieved, those denying the Biafra will come back to claim it, he said.
He said, “The Ijaws, Igbos and Ibibios who are saying they are not Biafrans. There are so many Igbos who are saying they are not Biafrans. There are many Ijaw people who are saying they are not Biafrans. You don’t blame them
“It is wrong for anybody to ask me if I’m Biafra. Is like asking me whether I’m Dokubo Asari. I will say it, continue to say it, Alhaji Dokubo Asari is a Biafran.
“I have no apology to give to anybody, I have no explanation for anybody. I’m a Biafran and that’s what I am. I can go to the Supreme Court of the Nigerian State to defend I’m not a Nigerian.
“Nnamdi Kanu’s sacrifice is a necessary thing that some of us must make for the actualization of our motherland. For the independence of our motherland, we must make these sacrifices. And one day, our brother will rip the benefit of his sacrifice.
