•Biafra National Council Chairman Asari Dokubo

Former Niger Delta Militant Leader, Alhaji Asari Dokubo, has regained his freedom after his arrest in connection with the inauguration of the Biafra National Council (BNC), News Express has learnt.

It was gathered that a detachment of policemen from the Bayelsa State Police Headquarters in Yenagoa invaded the venue of the inauguration of BNC and whisked away Dokubo, who is Chairman of the BNC Coalition.

“He was whisked away on Saturday immediately after he inaugurated the Council and was taken to the Police Headquarters but he was later granted bail,” a source close to Dokubo told News Express.

Similarly, about 100 members of the Biafra Nations Youth League (BNYL), who were arrested around Bayelsa junction while heading for the BNC inauguration have been released.

Confirming the development, National Leader of BNYL, Princewill Chimezie Richard, said the group took off in a convoy from Ahoada East in Rivers State “where all members who came from Bakassi, Ikom, Ikot Ekpene and Delta were lodged ahead of the event.”

He said that two of the buses carrying the Bakassi and Ikom members were signalled to reverse back, adding that those rounded up by the police were members of Ahoada, Ogba-Egbema-Ndoni and Ikwerre chapters of BNYL.

“There was jubilation on their return from the Police State CID,” the BNYL Leader disclosed.
