We'll Work With Fubara – Ex-Militant leader, Asabuja, Dares Wike


Gabriel 'General' Asabuja, a former Niger Delta militant leader, has made a vow to support Rivers State Governor Sim Fubara in his ongoing feud with Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Nyesom Wike.

Asabuja, leader of the defunct Movement for the Emancipation of Niger Delta (MEND), has promised to resist Wike's attempts to control Fubara, insisting that the governor should be allowed to maintain the peace of Rivers State.

Asabuja declared in a viral video that his group is prepared to fight crime, kidnapping, killings, and rape in Rivers State. He also stated that his soldiers, numbering over 10,000, will take over the 23 local government areas to support the government and escort caretaker chairmen to their respective councils.

Asabuja's declaration comes amid a standoff between Wike and Fubara over control of the state's political structures.

The ex-militant leader criticised Wike for questioning Fubara about the state's citizens, calling it an insult. He also accused the police of backing Wike for selfish reasons.

He said, “How can Wike be asking the number one citizen of the state ‘if they were born well,’ when he was governor did anybody ask him such a question? It's an insult to ask a governor such a question, and you expect us to keep quiet.
