N81bn theft is pickpocketing compared to what others are stealing – Asari Dokubo


Asari Dokubo, leader of the Niger Delta Peoples Salvation Force, Asari Dokubo has reacted to the alleged mismanagement of N81 billion by the interim management committee (IMC) of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC). 

Dokubo described the alleged mismanagement as mere pickpocketing saying its nothing compared to what Nigerians from other regions have looted from the Niger Delta people. 

He further likened the current probe of the agency as that of a man calling the police to report a pickpocketing case he witnessed while armed robbers are breaking into his house.

Dokubo said; 

“We are talking about N81 billion being pick-pocketed from Niger Delta while the bulk of our money, our resources is being carted away and we are not talking. 

“They want me to run after pickpockets and leave armed robbers that are coming into my house. When they talk about (Godswill) Akpabio, tell them about (Abubakar) Malami, when they talk about Joy (Nunieh), tell them about Sadiya (Umar Farouq), when they talk about any senator, tell them about (Ibrahim) Magu.”


  1. Asari Dokubo is does not make sense in his argument. A thief cannot be released because another thief had stolen more than he did. Such suggestion is absurd. I disagree with his opinion.
