The former leader of the Niger Delta Peoples Volunteer Force, Asari Dokubo has declared his confidence in his ability to lead his armed group in overturning the military junta in Niger Republic.
Dokubo asserts that if commissioned by the federal government, his forces could overpower the current regime in Niger.
A viral video has circulated featuring Dokubo’s proclamation that he and his associates possess the capability to reinstate democracy in Niger.
He stated, “If the government commissions me and my people to go to Niger Republic, we will go. We will defeat them and we will come back victorious.
“It is not a boast. If Benin Republic likes, let them go and bring anybody, they are human beings like us.
“We will go there, defeat them and restore democratic order.”
Presently, negotiations and reconciliation initiatives are in progress between the Niger junta and African leaders.
Recently, on Wednesday, Alhaji Muhammadu Sanusi, the 14th Emir of Kano, engaged with the coup leaders in Niger Republic.
The former governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria met with the military leadership subsequent to the junta’s discontinuation of discussions with representatives from the African Union (AU), the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), and a prominent US diplomat.
Sanusi’s visit was aimed at fostering negotiations with the junta. Following his engagement, he proceeded to the Villa in Abuja to brief President Bola Ahmed Tinubu on the situation.
