Former militant leader and founder of the Niger Delta Peoples Volunteer Force, Alhaji Mujahid Dokubo-Asari has called on the people in the Middle Belt region to rise up and defend themselves against attacks by suspected Fulani herdsmen.
He called on the people of Plateau, Benue, Kogi, Taraba and Nasarawa to stop the consumption of cow meat.
Speaking in an interview with Saturday PUNCH, Dokubo-Asari said: “They should stop crying like babies and stop behaving like cowards because the people who are killing them are not gods. The first law of survival is self defence.
“Till today, people in Plateau, Benue, Kogi, Taraba and Kogi states are still eating their cows. Those of us that are not eating their cows are extremists. It is shameful that the people of Middle Belt are crying like babies and other people are killing them. Don’t they have hands to defend their lives?
“They have every right to defend themselves. They should protect themselves and stop complaining.”
