Former Kaduna Central Senator, Shehu Sani has reacted after Niger Delta militant leader, Asari Dokubo raised a private army for President Bola Tinubu.
Sani slammed Dokubo for such act.
Recall that Dokubo had warned enemies of President Tinubu to stay away from him because anyone who plans his downfall has failed already.
Dokubo gave the warning while addressing his gang members of about 300 militants after his return from a pilgrimage to Mecca.
In a viral video, the militant leader said he and his comrades are working for the president and anyone seeking his downfall will be smashed.
Reacting on Monday via his Twitter page, Sani advised Tinubu not to directly or indirectly allow or encourage the rise of state-backed private armed militia.
He wrote: “I don’t know if the trending video is real or fake, but in any case, President Tinubu must not directly or indirectly allow or encourage the rise of state-backed private armed militia.
“They are viruses for the destruction of any country. A fragile country like ours doesn’t need a private army. The country’s armed forces, Police and other security agencies have the experience, capacity and competence to provide all the necessary protection the President and the Government need.”
