A former Niger Delta militant’s leader, Asari Dokubo, has described President Muhammadu as a “satan” for neglecting people of the region.
The former Niger Delta warlord lamented that oil has polluted rivers in the area and turned youths into sand diggers, yet the government is doing nothing about it.
In a video he shared on Facebook, the ex-militant leader said, “You know we are Ijaw people. Look at our river, see the pollution inside. Look at how oil has destroyed our river. The river has changed colour.
“I’m at Ekpeye land to show you how oil has destroyed our river while the people are enjoying our money in Abuja. They are enjoying our money in Lagos and we’re suffering.
“Now, the ever-lying Buhari just travel with his family in our Presidential jet bought with Ekpeye and Ijaw people’s money to enjoy in Turkey.
“Look at the water. Unfit water polluted with oil. This is the plight of Ijaw people; the plight of the oil producing people. This is the plight of the oil bearing community. My people are digging sand to feed and they say we are lazy people. My people are bringing sound from the river to build houses while our oil is making Buhari fly the Presidential jet.
“My people want to build house, they want live well and that is what we’re asking for but they give our oil blocks to different people to our own expense while we are poor. The owners of the oil are walking on foot; living wretched life but people who do not know anything about our oil are living in wealth.
“The pollution of our water and the neglect by Buhari show he is satan.”
