Former militant leader Alhaji Mujahid Dokubo Asari, has taken the upper hand in the public dispute with his uncle, former two-time federal minister, Prof. Tam David-West.

Yesterday, Dokubo, who leads the Niger Delta Peoples Volunteer Force (NDPVF) launched his second attack on Prof. David-West in as many days, seeking to justify the question mark he put on the ex-minister’s paternity. Prof. David-West had provoked Dokubo when he demanded that his trial for treason for declaring that there would be war and the consequent break-up of Nigeria if President Goodluck Jonathan is not re-elected in 2015. The respected professor of virology als promised to soon publish a dossier on Dokubo entitled “The Demystification of Asari-Dokubo.”

Writing updating his Facebook friend yesterday afternoon, Dokubo insisted that Prof. David-West’s birth name is Chidiadi Harry and gave details of what he claimed to be the erudite professor’s circumstances of birth as well as the genesis of their quarrel.

Dokubo’s words: “Chidiadi Harry (AKA) Tamunoemi David West is the first son of my Maternal grandfather....His mother Omualaowiba was the third daughter of Opu Wari Dabo Kio Idoniboye-Obu (Alabo Dick Harry)....While my mother Bekinwari M.D Goodhead, Iya Erebo, wife of my father, Hon. Justice Melford Dokubo Goodhead was the last daughter. His mother Omualaowiba claimed she had him with Mr Sokari David West a celebrated bank(er) of his time...Sokari had some marital problems with my Aunty and rejected the paternity of Chidiadi....Our grandfather Alabo Dick Harry in anger and great sorrow took the child and named him Chidiadi meaning God is alive or witness....Our grandfather sent him to school as he did with all his over fifty children and other relations. After the demise of our grandfather in 1943 the responsibility of training Chidiadi fell on the shoulders of Stanley Dick Harry our Uncle....Omualaowiba’s full brother.

“All this while, Mr Sokari kept his distance from Chidiadi who did well at school....Chidiadi became a nuisance in the family and outside....his certificates became his ego crutches with which he wants to dwarf all of us....A family populated by men and women who are at the top of their careers.....He became the bastard of the all family gatherings aspersions and innuendos were directed at him...suddenly Mr Sokari appeared without a DNA investigation to claim Chidiadi as his son....His name changed from Chidiadi Harry to Tamunoemi David West....Tamunoemi is literal translation of Chidiadi from Igbo to Ijaw....But our Chi is not sleeping he knows the hidden and the revealed....we can fool and deceive men but can we do that to our Chi?

“It was a great affront on the family when Chidiadi decided he wants to become our Wari Dabo....there was consternation and anger....many family members asked does this man not know his blood group....they forced his younger cousin...the son of uncle Stanley, Kio Idonoboye to retire from his top post in the NNPC to come and head the family....on the appointed day for the selection of the Wari Dabo Chidiadi did not turn up....the family against tradition and custom voted 221 for Kio Idoniboye against 3 for Chidiadi....He dragged the family to court.....We are still in court.

“How on earth will I descend to the level of Chidiadi?...I am an Alabo in Kio Idoniboye-Obu household, Obu, Idonibo, Obuama, Ombo group of War Canoe Houses, Soku and Alabo Edi Abali of Kalabari. Ala is the highest position a man can attain in Kalabari....Which Kalabari family will present Chidiadi as an Alabo without ridicule from other families?....That is why he needs to sell our people to be recognized by the Gambaris....The Gambari have tried to wash him the pig he will never be clean before us. He has fought me severally in court and other arenas.....but victory Insha Allah had always been mine.”
