A human rights activist, Deji Adeyanju says ex-Niger Delta militant leader, Mujahid Asari-Dokubo should not be mocking the re-arrested Leader of IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu.

He stated this in a Facebook post after Asari-Dokubo shared a lengthy video in which he gloated over Kanu’s re-arrest.

The ex-militant leader recalled that he promised the IPOB leader that he would smoke him, describing Kanu as a fraudster that took advantage of the Biafran struggle for personal enrichment.

Kanu is facing an 11-count charge bordering on treasonable felony, terrorism, unlawful possession of firearms and management of an unlawful society.

Adeyanju, who is the Convener of rights group Concerned Nigerians, reminded Asari-Dokubo that he was arrested during the administration of former President Olusegun Obasanjo for similar offences.

“It is indeed laughable that Dokubo Asari who was once arrested for similar allegations is now mocking Nnamdi Kanu.

“We may disagree with people but we should never mock those persecuted by Govt unjustly.

“Anyways, like I always say, the tyranny is enough to go round,” Adeyanju wrote on Facebook.
