Onuesoke condemns Danjuma’s call for arrest of Ex-N’Delta militants

The President General of Urhobo Nation for Okowa 2015, Chief Sunny Onuesoke, has condemned the call by General Theophilus Danjuma (rtd) for the arrest of ex-Niger-Delta militants, Tompolo, Asari   Dokubo, Boyloaf and Kingsley Kuku, for allegedly making war calls should President Goodluck Jonathan fail at the forthcoming polls.

Condemning the utterances of the retired general while addressing PDP supporters and members of the Urhobo Nation for Okowa 2015 at Warri, Delta State,   Onuesoke described the call as a call for the arrest of the people of the Niger Delta.

Onuesoke argued that while Danjuma and notable northerners have been unable to fish out and arrest those behind the activities of Boko Haram in the North, they are moving far away   to the Niger Delta calling for the arrests of ex-militants who have been peacefully executing their civil right obligations of freedom of speech and association as guaranteed by the nation’s constitution.

He said Danjuma was not making statements about the evil of Boko Haram that was ravaging the North-east, killing and maiming Christians, burning churches and destroying assets of easterners in the North all through the instrumentality and sponsorship of bigots.
