SSS Releases Dokubo After Six-hour Interrogation

The State Security Service has released the leader of the Niger Delta Peoples Volunteer Force, Alhaji Mujahid Dokubo-Asari, after six hours of interrogation.

The former warlord was cautioned and allowed to go home.

Asari, who arrived at the headquarters of the SSS in Abuja at 9.45am was quizzed for hours and released around 4pm.

Dressed in a striped blue and white short-sleeved attire, Asari was accompanied by a lawyer from Festus Keyamo chambers, a former chairman of Asari Toru council of River State, Chief Aroloyeteim Brown, some chiefs from the Niger Delta and some members of NDPVF.

Asari was allowed into the security agency’s premises with his lawyer and Brown.

The ex-militant was invited by the SSS, following his alleged inflammatory statements in connection to the 2015 election, in which he stressed in unequivocal terms that there will be bloodshed, if President Goodluck Jonathan was not re-elected.
