Niger-Delta leader Asari Dokubo says if the government commissions him and his ‘boy’, he has a squad that can defeat the military junta in Niger.
Recall that Niger’s democratically elected President Mohamed Bazoum was overthrown on July 26, 2023 by his presidential guards. Gen Abdourahmane Tchiani, the former commander of Niger’s presidential guard, later declared himself the head of a transitional government.
Dokubo, an ex-militant leader, in a video, said, “If the government commissions me and my boys, we will go. We will defeat them and we will come back victorious. It is not a boast.
“Let them go and bring anybody. They are human beings like us. We will go there, defeat them and defeat them and restore democratic order.”
