Asari Dokubo, a former militant leader has proclaimed himself as the leader of the new formation of Biafra Customary Government (BCG), a breakaway from the Indigenous people of Biafra led by Nnamdi Kalu. While speaking with Radio Now’s Ngozi Orlukwu on the Big Story on Monday, Kayode Ogundamisi who is a Commentator on Nigerian Affairs said he was not surprised at the declaration by Asari Dokubo.

Mr Ogundamisi said this new move by Asari is a result of his newfound business of “Self-determination activism”.

The Minister of Information and Culture, Mr Lai Mohammed also reacted to the creation of the Biafra Customary Government by former militant Asari Dokubo, saying the President Muhammadu Buhari led administration would not be distracted by what he describes as an “absurdity”.

The minister said this while responding to questions from journalists yesterday in Lagos, further calling the government of Asari Dokubo: “theatre of the absurd by a joker seeking attention”.

IPOB, a separatist group led by Nnamdi Kanu, has been agitating for an independent state of Biafra to be carved out from Nigeria’s South-east and South-south region and they have been involved in violent clashes with Nigerian security officials, however, Asari Dokubo claims his faction, will not be inclined to violence.
