The Movement for the emancipation of Niger Delta(MEND) has called for the release of its member, Alhaji Mujahid Asari Dokubo who was arrested by police officers in Benin republic on November 26th.

The reasons for Asari's arrest is yet to be known.Below is an excerpt from the statement released by MEND,
Even though Mr Asari Dokubo, along with some Niger Delta myopic and corrupt Tribal Assemblies like the Ijaw National Congress (INC), Ijaw Youth Congress (IYC), Ijaw Monitoring Group (IMG), South-South Peoples Assembly (SSPA) and Elder Edwin K Clark gloated or kept silent over Henry Okah’s setup, arrest and conviction, we will remember the role Mr Asari Dokubo had played in the unfinished struggle before he was bought off along with several others. 
If diplomacy fails to prevail, we will not rule out any form of attacks on the Republic of Benin’s interests.
The organization pledged not to abandon Mr. Dokubo at this time just as it will not abandon Henry, his brother Charles Okah and others who are still incarcerated.
