Asari Dokubo has no links with Boko Haram, an Ijaw Activists, Rosabella Jackson has said. He denied every link that may have in one way or the other connected to the insurgent groups.
But Jackson dismissed the allegations, describing them as the “figments of the imagination of Dokubo’s detractors.”
She spoke in an interview on Monday that it was a “smear campaign” carried out against the former President of the Ijaw Youth Council in order to give him a bad name.
“Asari is not in any way used by Muslims at all and he has never sent any Niger Deltan to Kuwait or other Muslim nations for study,” Jackson said.
She said Dokubo understands the Islamic faith very well, adding that he would never engage in dastardly acts like some religious fanatics.
She urged religious leaders to properly understudy Dokubo before making statements that could put his life in danger.
Describing Dokubo as a peace-loving man, she said Dokubo has indigent students of Igbo, Hausa and Yoruba origin in his scholarship scheme.
“Asari has a school where he has children of Hausa, Igbo and Yoruba under his scholarship. He is not a violent person,” she said.
