The leader of Niger Delta Peoples Volunteer Force (NDPVF) Mujahid Asari Dokubo is still not convinced that Chibok school girls were kidnapped and is still insisting its a scam.

Speaking yesterday in Port Harcourt at an event to mark Isaac Adaka Boro’s day, Asari who accused the Borno state governor and some top northern opposition politicians of knowing where the girls are, said no conspiracy would stop President Goodluck Jonathan from running a second term in Nigeria.
Asari who led hundreds of Ijaw youths on a protest march through major roads in Port Harcourt explained that President Jonathan had the backing of the ex militant leaders.
He added that the protest was a march towards freedom.
"Our enemies are not sleeping, but we will take the battle to the enemies where ever they are. They have been tempting us and pushing us.
"Today is a great day, not only in our lives, but also In the history of the Niger delta, perhaps, this may be the greatest day in the Niger delta, this is because we are going to demonstrate to the world how and what we feel about oppression," Asari said.
According to the ex-militant, political leaders in Nigeria have not learnt how to stand and fight, rather they shft ground and do the bidding of those who have said they were born to rule Nigeria while others were born to be ruled.
Asari added that he was born to be equal to all, no matter who or what they are or where they come from.
"How long shall we wait while strangers take their turns to exploit, exclude and marginalize us, with all the painful sacrifices we made" he said.
Asari once again described the abduction of school girls from Government Girls Secondary school, Chibok, Borno state by Boko Haram during a night raid on April 14, as a scam.
This is not the first time Asari is calling the abduction of Chibok girls a scam. He had on May 8, taken to social media to say no girls are missing. He also held an anti-BringBackOurGirls protest to make his claims known.
