N81bn theft at NDDC is mere pickpocketing compared to what Nigerians from other regions are stealing – 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 and 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.
“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 pickpocketers 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.”
