The Interim Deputy National Secretary of the All Progressives Congress, Nasir El-Rufai has described ex-Niger Delta militant leader, Mujahid Asari-Dokubo as a thug, during an interview with Sahara TV, over his fifteen hours interrogation at the Department of State Services, (DSS) .

When asked if the name of Asari-Dokubo came up during his interrogation, the former Minister of the Federal Capital Territory said no, and added that he could not have mentioned Asari-Dokubo’s name because he and Dokubo do not have anything in common.

He said: “Asari Dokubo is a thug. I don’t compare myself to him. I’ve never taken up arms against the state. I’m a normal human, law-abiding Nigerian. I don’t compare myself with thugs,” El-Rufai said.

Prior to this time, Asari-Dokubo, a supporter of President Goodluck Jonathan had referred to El-Rufai as a coward on his initial refusal to honour the invitation of the DSS.

El-Rufai also lamented that the upcoming national conference is a ploy to divert attention from the failures of Jonathan’s administration.
