- Asari Dokubo lamented the pollution of the water in the Niger Delta
- The former militant said people from other regions were benefitting from the oil

Asari Dokubo has lashed out at President Muhammadu Buhari saying he is able to fly himself and his family with a Presidential private jet because of oil money from Niger Delta.
In a video, the former militant leader lamented that the Ijaw people don’t have access to clean water as oil has polluted their rivers.
Amina Mohammed Dokubo said the people have been impoverished while some other persons are awarded oil bloc at the people’s expense.
He said: “You know we are Ijaw people. See our river. Its oil that changed the colour. I’m showing you how oil destroyed our river. But some people are enjoying our money in Abuja; they’re enjoying our money in Lagos. “We are suffering. President Buhari just travelled with his family with our presidential jet and packed Ijaw people money there. He went to Turkey to enjoy. “See the water. It has been polluted. See how dirty the water it. This is the plight of the people from the oil-producing area. “We are dredging sand from the river and they come and tell us that we are lazy people. Our oil is making Buhari fly presidential jet.
“They give our oil bloc to other people at our own expense while we are poor. The people are working. The owner of oil resources are living wretched lives while those who do not know anything about oil are living in unimaginable outlet. “We will not agree. We will not accept. They just stole $65 billion at NNPC. Look at our river. It is totally polluted.
It had earlier been reported that Dokubo launched a verbal attack on the personality and dignity of vice president Yemi Osinbajo in a video rant.
The former militant who came into prominence during the administration of former president Goodluck Jonathan accused the vice president of lying. Dokubo specifically says the vice president has a "PhD in lying".
