The Nigerian Government made mistakes which made the Boko Haram crisis to develop into a full-blown insurgency, a former militant has said.

Alhaji Mujahid Dokubo-Asari, leader of the Niger Delta Peoples Volunteer Force (NDPVF), who once took up arms against Nigeria, said: “Someone in government thought it could be wished away, that it was easy. Boko Haram? ‘It will fizzle away’ and all the warning we gave them, they did not accept. They misled the government into believing that it could be wished it away. If they had taken a decisive action at that time, I don’t think that this would have reached the stage it has reached now.”

Regarding the extra-judicial killing of Boko Haram leader, Yusuf Mohammed, which worsened the crisis, Dokubo told the Lagos-based Vanguard in an interview to mark his 50th birthday: “The killing of Yusuf Mohammed was a mistake. If Yusuf Mohammed were to die, he should have gone for trial. Nobody should use his whims and caprices as the law like what Saddam Hussein said ‘whatever I wrote with my hand, that is the law’. That was what (late Pesident Umaru Musa) Yar’Adua did. Why should you kill somebody extra-judicially? Take him to court if he had committed any offense. You have the laws. If they had followed due process, it would have mitigated what is happening. But they did not follow. They went outside the law. When you go outside the law, you are also telling the other person to also meet you outside the law.”
