Those complaining about govt paying ex-militants are insane – Asari Dokubo’s wife

Mujahidat Daba Asari-Dokubo, wife of boisterous Niger Delta militant
Mujahid Asari Dokubo, has described critics of millions of dollars paid
to her husband and other militant kingpins as insane.
The US-based Wall Street Journal recently reported that President
Goodluck Jonathan’s administration had paid more than $40 million to Mr.
Dokubo and several other militants.
In her reaction, Mrs. Dokubo also accused Northerners of
over-criticizing the president and trying to box Mr. Jonathan into a
corner through attacks by cabals and Boko Haram. 

Warning the North, Mrs.
Dokubo also described Mr. Jonathan as an intelligent and sincere
leader. She said her family had been close to the president since his
days as governor of Bayelsa State.
Mrs. Dokubo has been using her Facebook page to defend the payments
made to her husband and a few others, crediting the militants with
protecting oil pipelines and other critical infrastructure in the
oil-rich Niger Delta.
Below are sequences of some of Mrs. Dokubo’s unedited posts:

“I want to clear the mind of some these northerners who never see
anything good in Mr president pls stop boxing Mr president to a corner
so that he will be at the beck and call of the north and forget that the
Niger delta region has to be developed where the proceed of the
resources used in running the 37 states including Abuja is gotten from.
At the end of his tenure it is the same people who will come out and say
your brother was there and he couldn’t do anything for the people of
the Niger delta region. The GEJ I know is a very kind hearted man and
very intelligent he knows his onions pls let the cabal in the north and
their agents, boko haram give him a chance to transform this country,
their past leaders destroyed. In less than the next 2 years most you who
are criticizing Gej will turn around and swallow your vomit

“People who are complaining about the pipeline jobs awarded to ex
freedom fighters should go and re-examine their head if they are sane. You
are questioning the owners of their properties why a peanut should be
given to them compared to those who lived in the desert that don’t
produce a spoon of oil, yet they control the resources of the Niger
delta. They live fat and large from the proceed of oil in the Niger
delta that they are now mad.

“What concerns a stranger with what I do with my property is it becos
we the Niger deltans kept quiet for a very long time after the death of
Isaac Adaka Boro? In fact all freedom fighters deserve huge oil blocs
not pipeline contracts. Do you people know how many people these freedom
fighters care and feed? This pipeline job will cater for thousands of
poverty striken families in the Niger delta. So those of you running
your mouth should just shut your trap. Boko haram kill their people and
strangers especially Christians they are demons so stop comparing Niger
delta freedom fighters and boko haram I rest my case.”
