“In the interview Mr Asari Dokubo said while he would not adopt a “civilized response to Mr Mohammed by suing the APC Spokesperson for his remarks he (Asari Dokubo) warned that should courts fail to deliver justice he will resort to self-help by using his hands and any other means to deal with Mr Mohammed ”
