It was rumored that Alhaji Asari Dokubo, founder of the Niger Delta People’s Volunteer Force (NDPVF) was dead, followed the report that he was attacked by military.

The report says he might have been killed as he was nowhere to be found after the attack, but the Ijaw Youth Council (IYC) has debunked the news.

According to a statement by the spokesman for IYC, Eric Omare, on Saturday, August 27, the former militant warlord, Asari Dokubo was in good health, and there was nothing like clash between him and military men.
