Former Niger Delta militant leader, Asari Dokubo has threatened to kill Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) with his bare hands.
Dokubo threatened to kill Kanu inside the courtroom while speaking in a video on Monday.
The former leader of the defunct Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger-Delta issued the threat while reacting to reports that some IPOB members had beaten him up.
While dismissing those claims as untrue, Dokubo declared that any day such happens, he will practically go to court and eliminate the IPOB leader personally.
In a video shared on his Facebook page which was sighted by The Eastern Updates, Dokubo described such claims as falsehood.
‘You can think o, You can talk, but the day you attempt all these your lies that you are lying, I will practically go and kill Nnamdi Kanu even in the court, even with Nigerian Military and all the Nigerian security agencies around.
‘I will not send anybody, I will practically go there and kill him with my own hands,’ he threatened.
The Niger Delta warlord and Kanu have experienced a frosty relationship over the years.
Kanu is facing charges bordering on terrorism before Justice Binta Nyako-led Federal High Court, Abuja.
The Eastern Updates recalls that Dokubo had year released a video where he listed out reasons why he thinks Nnamdi Kanu is a criminal.
In the video, he salutes fellow Biafrans and asks them to deliberate on the alleged $85,000 and see why the leadership of Nnamdi Kanu would be very toxic for Biafran people.
He accuses Nnamdi Kanu of changing stories when asked about the funds that he allegedly sent to Dokubo to rally some men to aid the Biafran cause. He also completely denied receiving any funds while directly challenging Mazi Nnamdi Kanu to produce evidence of payment.
