Niger Delta freedom fighter, Mujahid Asari Dokubo exposes injustices in Nigeria

Boko Haram is not fighting for anything
other than the seizure of political power
by the Fulani people. They are using
Kanuri territory to perpetrate the evil,
but the main people instigating this
bloodletting are the Fulani from Futa
Djallon. We know where they came from.
They are colonialists and if we made the
British to leave, what are these people
doing here? They are also colonialists.
You have to reflect and ask yourself
some questions.
Kano is a Hausa city, the Emir of Kano is
not a Hausa man; he is a Fulani. Ilorin
is a Yoruba city, the Emir of Ilorin is a
Fulani. Bida is a Nupe town, the Emir of
Bida is a Fulani. Birnin Gwari is a Gbagi
town, the Emir of Birnin Gwari is a
Fulani. The Lamido of Adamawa who is
residing in Yola is a Fulani, who claims
he has other Fulanis in Cameroon and
other places. These are not Fulani cities.
We know where they all came from.
They all migrated from far-flung places
to their present locations. So if we know
where they come from and we know that
they are not from here, they came to
colonise these territories. What are they
still doing here? If the British left, the
French left, the Germans left, the
Portuguese left, the Belgians left, what
are these people doing here? They are
also colonialists, but this is what our
elites are ready to accept.
Why should we allow foreigners to
dominate the aborigines? When people
like us talk, they say these are very
sensitive issues, don’t touch them. Why
should we not touch them? Why should
the Sultan of Sokoto be the head of
Muslims in Nigeria? Where did we meet
and make the Sultan our head? So these
are the things. But a lot of people don’t
look beyond the surface. A man says he
is born to rule; you have not asked
yourself, if that man is born to rule,
what about you? If the man is born to
rule, you are born to be ruled.
So you become drawers of water and
hewers of wood. A wise man in one of
the great books I have read said: For I
have seen a grave injustice on the
surface of the earth that I saw the
servants riding on horseback and princes
walking on foot. The Hausa man in Kano
is walking on foot; Sanusi, a Fulani man,
a Gambari from Guinea is riding on
horseback.
Fulani Sulu-Gambari in Ilorin is riding
on horseback. These are the issues that
we’ve not been able to capture. Why
should injustice continue? Why should
the indigenous Hausa population in Kano
not be given back what rightfully belongs
to them? Why is it that in Ilorin, the
indigenous Yoruba people, the ones they
call Baba Agba, are not given back what
rightfully belongs to them?
