$9.3m Arms Scandal: Asari Dokubo’s denial carries no weight – APC

Lai Mohammed

The All Progressives Congress, APC, has rejected ex-militant leader, Asari Dokubo’s denial of involvement in the $9.3 cash-for-arms scandal between the Nigerian and South African governments.
APC had said Mr. Dokubo was one of two Nigerians arrested in South Africa after he travelled to that country with the huge cash to buy arms, purportedly for the Nigerian government.
The opposition party quoted news reports.
Mr. Dokubo has denied being on the airplane.
The APC said the denial carries no weight until the Nigerian government comes clean on the identity of Nigerians aboard the plane carrying the $9.3 million dollars impounded by the South African government.

In a statement issued in Abuja on Thursday by its National Publicity Secretary, Lai Mohammed, the party said its reaction followed a story published by www.africaneagle.com and www.nairaland.com saying Asari Dokubo was one of the Nigerians aboard the jet that carried the money to South Africa.

”To the best of our knowledge, that report has not been denied over 24 hours later. We therefore contend that Asari Dokubo’s denial of his involvement carries no weight until the government, which has claimed ownership of the funds, tells Nigerians who the two Nigerian citizens – who were in the plane with an Israeli – are.

”We have no business with Asari Dokubo. He can blab all he likes. We have no reason to disbelieve a widely-circulated published report that named him as one of those on the plane. If he now says he was not on the plane, let the government come out and tell Nigerians who and who were on it, it said.

APC wondered why the government has refused, for over three weeks now, to identify the Nigerians who flew on the plane that ferried the money to South Africa, especially after the Israeli who was also on the plane has been named.

”Identifying the Nigerians will help to unravel the circumstances surrounding the whole scandal. It will be interesting to know if the Nigerians are security officials, officials from the office of the NSA who issued the end-user certificate for the transaction or ordinary Nigerians. It will be interesting to know their relationship with the government that qualified them to fly such a huge amount of money to another country without declaring it. It will be interesting to know if they are arms contractors.

”We hope the Jonathan Administration will end its deafening silence on the issue immediately and come clean on the whole scandal,” the party said.

    Tales by moonlight. All this ogogoro government

  • the truth

    now you guys see how the opposition operates or lie lie mohammed analogy. how can a major opposition party and its publicity secretary base such a weighty allegation on what an online media says. i cant imagine the republican party make an accusation based on online blogs.questions arising are how credible are nairaland and african online, glancing through the mentioned sites one begins to wonder of all credible sites to base such a monumental accusation lie lie mohammed choses this sites. i will continue to say it we rush to conclusions so quick, with lie lie mohammed’s history and past precedents i would seriously ponder before rushing to the bank with any word from his mouth. another question here is how can you rush to the press if not to ignite nigerians, if you are not 100% sure of who was on the plane? or has apc through lie lie mohammed become a gossip online paper too?

    • Wähala

      Ever heard of Watergate’???
      That scandal broke because of a newsman’s info and in the end, forced then US President, Nixon, to declare…
      “I’m not a crook” which turned out to be a lie… he was a crook just like Dr. Jona Dumbo. Ask your crumbs-givers to declare who were on that flight and stop your unsolicited ranting about rushing to judgment. Do you honestly believe Alhaji Lai did not do his homework before staking his Party’s name against a common criminal and obese terrorist thug? Flight information are carefully kept data and if your moron has nothing to hide, Lai Mohammed is tactically daring Dumbo to name the Nigerians… analytical thinking is not for everyone, it’s for erudite minds.

      • the truth

        you mentioned watergate to show your rudimentary analysis there was a thorough investigative reporting by two premier papers even until this day “washington post” and new york times”, but lie lie mohammed based his judgement and accusation on nairaland and africanonlinenews. have you ever gone to nairaland and see what they post there on that site? who were the authors on nairaland? don’t u know with your level of eloquence and intelligence that you claim to be that you can post anything on nairaland as we speak, it is a blog were people share there ideas and opinions. as we speak going through nairaland you have a blog “who is your celebrity crush”Succesful women have plenty of men in their lives” so is this where a national opposition party should get their information from? can you wahala quote from nairaland to save your life or for academic purposes?now can you go to new york times and washington post to post anything if not there registered writers and editors? did you read asari’s response were he gave his whereabouts on the said day with evidences and time stamps? so lie lie mohammed knew it was a lie but said it in order to incite nigerians like you. the question i have for you is why does apc and lie lie mohammed intentionally lie and when caught lieing later, they never retract their statements or issue an apology.

        • Yola

          Then why should Asari and the FG wait, let them sue Lai for defamation and spreads of lies against the gov’t which can be treasonable. Why wait let them if they don’t have anything to hide. All of us know how Asari react to such but I am suprise of his response and explanation and he look timid. See how the Presidency react to GEJ being listed among the richest african leaders even threatening court action and retraction, why is this different.

          • the truth

            so is this the first time apc has lied without apologies and retracting of statement. my brother the question is how can a major opposition party base their accusations on a gossip online news. don’t you know you and i can as we speak now post on nairaland if allowed by the moderator and claim watever against federal government and anyone, so does it sound good to your ears that a major opposition party apc takes that post without verifying and addressing nigerians on our post? do you see where i am coming from mr yola?

          • Yola

            Mine is for Asari and FG to take him and APC to court and let all know what really happen, not all these silence. The court will make him to apologize and even fine him. He already mention his source it left for those involve to refute it or take legal action. Why is the name of the two Nigerians kept in secret? In all the effort being made by the NSA and the Presidency trying to defend the transaction why are they still not naming the Nigerians but the name of the Israeli was mentioned. This is a security issue where a foreigner and two Nigerians are involve in a country with a lot of security challenges and religious and ethnic sentiments. The FG should save us of these suspense, accusations and counter accusations and do the right thing.

        • Bigtin

          “why does apc and lie lie mohammed intentionally lie and when caught lieing later, they never retract their statements or issue an apology.” Great question!

          • Wähala

            How are you sure the APC and Lai Mohammed have been “caught lying later” when we don’t know the identities of those entrusted with our $9.7million in cold cash? Like I keep saying, some people should be banned from thinking… you qualify!

          • the truth

            how can someone prove he is a serial liar? are you serious? if you can’t see that i rest my case

          • Wähala

            Do you know the meaning of “serial liar” at all?
            Prove him wrong by naming the passengers on that flight first, prove him wrong a second time…
            Then you can qualify him as a “serial liar” since it is meant for repeat offenders. Again, see what I mean? Thinking is not for everyone… some people must be banned. You qualify!

        • Wähala

          What is with you and apologies?
          Your feeble question can be impeached because until we have the Official Statement from Dumbo’s Govt. about the passengers entrusted with our $9.7mn in cash, the APC and Lai Mohammed have not been caught in a lie. Ever heard this phrase… in politics, a rumor not denied within 24hrs becomes a fact? Dumbo was quick to deny he’s among the richest African Presidents (within 24hrs) yet, three weeks after the scandal in SA he’s still mum, doesn’t that tickle your curiosity? Pal, we’re not on the same pedestal, I think for a living while you think to belong… big difference!

          • the truth

            everybody is entitled to think, and some think foolishly like you. how can you support a man who has been caught lieing.this is a man who is not just an individual, he represents the major opposition party tell you he got information from an online gossip news and you are here defending him. i always insist on apologies because that’s what civilised people with principles do. i can’t imagine mitch mcconell address the nation with facts from hollywood gossip newspaper or tmz.
            Was it a lie that lie lie mohammed categorically pointed out asari’s name as the other passenger on the jet?
            Was it a lie that lie lie mohammed inferred that asari is one of the nigerians still in jail in south africa?

          • Jerry

            Why argue with Wahala, AKA Lie Lie pikin? Some of us are living witnesses of when he(wahala) ws caught lying in an argument some wks back with i think ‘redeem’. All entreaties for him to tow the path of honor and apologize fell on deaf ears. He said unless someone else(a government official) offers an apology for an entirely diffrnt issue!
            Lying is their stock in trade. They repeatedly make reckless comments they can substantiate and tend to look dumb repeatedly.
            However, the burden of proof lies with APC and Wähala.
            That’s the law..unless they are lawbreakers..which they are anyway..

          • the truth

            that was against me with the pictures of apc chieftians and the borno former governor.

      • Bigtin

        “why does apc and lie lie mohammed intentionally lie and when caught lieing later, they never retract their statements or issue an apology”? Over to you Bros!

        • Wähala

          How are you sure the APC and Lai Mohammed have been “caught in a lie” when we still do not know the identities of the passengers on that flight… see what I mean? Thinking is not for everyone!

          • the truth

            you are really myopic in thinking, u claim to be vast but i am sorry to say you are a big olodo. lie lie mohammed said with vigor yesterday that asari was in the plane, if he was been truthful why didn’t he mention then that he got his news from nairaland an online gossip outlet. so we do not know who was on the plane why make such a vague statement that asari was in the plane, did you see apc claim they werent sure it was asari on the plane yesterday. he only made this statement after asari made his wereabouts known

          • Bigtin

            I need to borrow your faculty then ……Lol

    I am terribly surprised that Liar Mohammed is saying that he relied on the online news! What a terrible gaffe! He messed up Apc for good. It is unfortunate that this is what Apc has been doing ever since. All their allegation are false. Oh, nawao!, Liar Mohammed needs to be stopped now before he put this country on fire. You see what propaganda can do? He didn’t verify before using his source, he is just biased and focus less. Asari said, the last time he was in South Africa is 2002. How can Liar Mohammed is still bragging after his goof. Shame to Apc, Nigerians now know you.

    • Many_Kay

      He shouldn’t rely on online info abi? So why are you here?

      • Ken

        Before I used what I read here, I must verify from other sources. The accusation against Asari is very weighty and needed to be proved before going to press.

        • Musa

          Then let the Goverment answered the question that can not be answered for weeks

          • Wähala

            Shikena!

          Stop lying!

    • Wähala

      Shut-up dia!
      The American Govt and people relied on Bob Woodward and the Washington Post during Watergate to force Nixon out of office… online news is just another outlet. They’re manned by human beings who are journalists, in case you don’t know… try writing phool the correct way and see what happens to your comment!

      • Ken

        I am terribly and angrily surprised that Liar Mohammed is saying that he relied on the online news! What a terrible gaffe! He messed up Apc for good.

How can Liar Mohammed make a big blunder and he is still bragging? Shame to Apc, shame to Liar Mohammed, Nigerians now know you and your party better.

        • Wähala

          Stop this your copy-n-paste @Deri Redeem…
          If they ban your new handle now na you go begin complain…

          • the truth

            why must every one who is not supporting lie lie mohammed or apc redeem. with your logic that means wahala, change 2014-2015, mosaku, abdin and abdul are one person. everybody has to think like wahala and if not, he or she must be abused and cursed at

      • the truth

        can you compare online news with a credible source like washington post. can you imagine the republican party basing an allegation on an online gossip news? shame on you for closing your eyes and supporting the wrong thing

        • Wähala

          Is The Washington Post not online? Sorry oo! Didn’t know that…
          Aren’t you exhibiting crass knowledge in assuming that all credible news must be in print or video?
          The American, both Republican ati Democrats pelu non-party citizens all join body sing the same chorus that got rid of their crooked President, Richard Nixon (+)… by shouting, ‘impeach him, impeach him!’ so loud that Nixon jeje resigned and Peace of God suddenly descended on God’s Country… wallahi !!!

          • Abel Wariboko

            Just to inform you that another website that put gej as 6th richest African pres has yanked it off. I am waiting for ASARI to do something

  • Wähala

    Alhj. Lai has a point here, unless the Govt. identifies who they sent to South Africa with $9.7mio in raw cash, every Nigerian is free to draw their own conclusions. And since the news outlets have not been threatened by Dumbo who was quick to harass another publication with the threat of a lawsuit, they have not withdrawn from their positions of naming Asari who in turn has not sued them for defamation of character. Asari’s timeline excuse doesn’t hold water because after their arrest, Nigerian Govt. must have secured their release with a pledge to furnish SA authorities with supporting documents to prove they were acting authoritatively. However, when the “oluwole paperwork” arrived 5days later and were scrutinized, it dawned on the Zulus that the arms dealer was not licensed thus, the seizure of the funds on suspicion and investigation for money laundering. The 2nd. deal was just an after-thought to validate the first… again, the Zulus were not deceived which resulted in another seizure. So, Asari being in Saudi Arabia on the 27th of Sept. has nothing to do with him being in jail on the 5th. of the same month… and, with dual citizenship passports, his watery rantings about visa can be flushed down the toilet since Benin Republic citizens do not need visas but get permits at ports of entry when visiting Zulu land. Bottom line… who were the co-travelers of the Jew, Eyal Maseki, abi na another nameless banker at the CBN? Nonsense!

    • Abel Wariboko

      Lie muhammad relying on online news media. God forbid. Something is wrong somewhere. Who are the owners of that media and what is the evidence. He who alleges must prove. I hereby advise ASARI to sue lie muhammad and APC if indeed he is clean .let lie tell the court that he relied on an online news medium

      • Wähala

        Hopefully, Asari will take your advise and drag Alhj. Lai and the APC…
        That will teach you that Lai Mohammed via the courts can subpoena the news outlets to furnish the source of their naming Asari as one of the thugs with our cash. You don’t rely on online news medium yet, you’re here advising someone and hoping that they rely on online news medium and will read your comment, ba?

  • Ken

    You have right to ask for the identities of the two Nigerians on board; but that does not translate to the fact that Asari must one of the two. The South African Govt can reveal their identity. Why is Liar not interested in asking SA, why ask Govt?

    • Wähala

      Why go to Sokoto to look for what’s in sokoto?
      The flight took off from the presidential wing at Abuja Airport with all manifesto duly submitted to the NCAA…
      Why can’t they just tell us who and who were on that flight, or don’t you know you have a right to that information as a Nigerian citizen whose name via this corrupt Govt. is being dragged thru the mud? Mumus in Mumudom, indeed !!!

      • Abel Wariboko

        Why can’t lie then go to NCAA

        • Wähala

          Because it’s controlled by the same Govt. that has refused to name her citizens arrested in SA…

          • Abel Wariboko

            No freedom of information there?go to court and demand for it

          • Wähala

            We’ve been trying to use the FOI Act to secure access to Dumbo’s assets declaration form for 5years to no avail… yet, you want us to start another fiver-year journey ba? You need injection in the head!

  • Rabiu

    The burden of proof lies with the accuser.
    APC Should either prove the allegation or shut their mouths.
    Lai Moh’d shld realise these are security issues. It might not b expedient to release the identities of the two.
    They (APC ) shld concentrate on articulating their manifesto for the purported ‘change’ they want to bring about and avoid petty debates.
    They said PDP is bad. We are witnesses to this. BUT THEY NEED TO TELL US WHAT WILL BE DIFFERENT ABOUT AN APC GOVERNMENT AT THE CENTER.
    That is the crux of the matter.

    • Damilare Ajani

      Lai Mohammed has just told you where the information comes from, let the Federal Government disclose the othe two Nigerians inside the plane. By the way it is not shameful to have an israeli involved in the affairs of Nigeria National security?.

  • Benny Hills

    APC is asking the question all of us should be asking. Its not a matter of they and we. We are all on the same boat. Nigeria’s name has been bastardized time and time again. We (I) deserve to know what is going on. Let the president clear the air.

    • Ken

      Which other air. Has the Govt not done what she ought to do? The govt has spoken and has cleared everything. The fund are for legitimate transaction, the $5.7m was even wired through the Bank. Black market purchase of arms is done all over the world.

      • Benny Hills

        The air around Asari Dokubo the terrorist.

  • TRUTH MASTER

    Please don’t muddle the waters. If Asari Dokubo says he is not on the plane, who is?

    Only one entity can clear the air: The Federal Government.

    Therefore, let’s not dissipate energy on frivolities. Let the FG tell us the Nigerians on the plane. Finish!

    • Abel Wariboko

      If FG says it was lie muhammad will you be satisfied? You have alledged, prove it

      • Benny Hills

        The FG cannot lay claim to a false statement on an issue that is not to secret and they know it.

      • Wähala

        It’s one thing to say something, and another to prove it…
        If the FG says it was Lai Mohammed… Alhaji Lai can disprove it by showing a video of himself at an owambe in Ijebu Ode on that faithful night, which means the FG cannot lie about verifiable information… see the logic? Thinking is not for everyone, some people must be banned… you qualify!

        • Abel Wariboko

          So lie muhammad cannot show the verifiable evidence for his categorical statement?

  • the truth

    all i hope is after the truth on who was on the plane and if it comes out not to be asari apc would for the first time apologise to nigerians for defamation of character. this is not their first rodeo and i doubt if they would ever apologise

  • eduetok

    So APC issued the statement based on information gleaned from online gossip forum? Hmmmmmmmmmm,okay o.

  • the truth

    so what separates apc from market women gossipers. is this the opposition we want. wahala mentioned watergate but forgot to tell nigerians that watergate was carried out by investigative journalist from new york times and the washington post. but apc based their accusations on an online gossip news. can you guys see how low this people have taken us to be.lie lie mohammed in a saner country would apologise to nigerians. nobody told lie lie mohammed that you and i could as we speak post anything we feel on nairaland without prove if allowed by the moderators. is that a news outlet a major opposition party should base their accusations. and yesterday when i called for calm and investigation before jumping to conclusion i was cursed at.

  • Otile

    The burden of proof lies with L Mohammed. You cannot lob an accusation on someone and insist that he must prove that he is not
    guilty. Show credible evidence to prove your accusation. Hear him: “To the best of our knowledge, that report has not
    been denied over 24 hours later. We therefore contend that Asari Dokubo’s denial of his involvement
    carries no weight…”

    What has 24hr response got to do with this heap
    of manure? What kind of argument is that? L Mohammed, were you there? Show evidence to back up your claim.

    • Serano

      @ Otile,

      God bless you for helping us to educate that local and crass Alhaji Lai Mohammed.
      I don’t think he can even understand your teaching him ‘burden of proof’ – he’s too daft.
      He accuses Asari Dokubo of being in detention, Asari sends photo of himself in Mecca.
      Rather than keep quiet and live in shame Lai Mohammed admits Asari Dokubo is in Mecca,
      by not disputing that fact, but then says this (admitted) fact does not carry weight until
      a third party – the federal government – names the two passengers on the plane who are
      still in jail in South Africa. In other words, he will continue to see Asari Dokubo as the one in
      jail in South Africa, notwithstanding that Asari Dokubo is actually on pilgrimage in Saudi Arabia.
      Is this how somebody who went to school should think? Did Lai Mohammed really go to school?

  • Pere

    ASARI DOKUBO IN MECCA PERFORMING HAJJ

    Here we are O! This is Asari Dokubo in Mecca performing the
    pilgrimage. Lai Mohammed of APC said Asari Dokubo is in jail amongst the
    three persons who accompanied $9.3million in cash to South Africa.

    Haba! Why does Lai Mohammed lie like this? Everyday lies, lies, lies!
    When will he stop?

    Why does APC think that Lai Mohammed who has no credibility
    can ever help the party look good? Look, let’s be blunt on this point.
    Lai Mohammed alienates people. He repulses decent people. No one
    listening to Lai Mohammed will give APC a second look. The man is just a
    bunch of lies – plus, a shame and a disgrace to Nigeria’s educated
    class!

    • Wähala

      Welcom Home…
      Today must be “cat-free-day” in the Rathaus Makt… rat’s market. I notice all the e-rats are rushing out to take a wack at Alhaji Lai, is Reno Omokri paying time-n-half today? That stingy bald-headed criminal. Sha, unless Asari sues the APC, the news outlets or Lai Mohammed… he was on that flight. And, if I were you, I won’t be too sure Lai doesn’t already have a copy of that flight manifest tucked safely in his sokoto and waiting for Dumbo to say no be Asari… like he said, their Party has no business with a tout, they want to hear from our Comedian-in-Chief. Hahahaa chei!

    • Yola

      So you mean Asari being in Mecca stop him from being arrest on the 5th Sept and release after FG’s intervention and the travel to Mecca on 27th Sept which he mentioned. All we know non of those arrested were detained, they were all released after FG’s intervention but the money is what is consfiscated. So that does not prove Asari is not among those arrested and if he feel Lai lie he should take him to court.

      • Wähala

        Superb submission… he can always sue!

        • the truth

          but in your response to me yesterday after lie lie mohammed accused asari, you categorically infered asari was one of the nigerians in pretoria jail , am i lieing wahala? for god sake lie lie mohammed in his post yesterday inferred that they are still in prison in south africa, is that a lie wahala?

          • Wähala

            You and I do share a bottle of odeku during “cease fires” and I consider you my friendly enemy unlike Deri Orbuka aka, Redeem. Frankly, I can joke around with you but trust & believe me, I’m not here to defend Alhaji Lai Mohammed, I speak for myself and will absolve insults that I bring upon myself… reproduce Lai’s complete/pertinent statement yesterday and as friendly-enemy, I will help you dissect it. No need throwing knuckles over an Alhaji who is probably knaacking his head for ground now and waiting for the rest ram from Salah to become suya… kapisch?

          • the truth

            lol cease fire. one odeku my man. but make we talk true na. lie lie mohammed no suppose to dey incite us like this. mind u i don dey curse asari and jonathan, only to find out say na lie, how u go feel wahala.

          • Wähala

            Want my true feelings?
            Don’t apologize to either until we know who the passengers on that flight were…
            It’s called, “trust, but verify” in cold-war politics which our friendship qualifies for…

          • endingNaija

            “the truth” when will you redeem this truth about the identity of the two Nigerian money launderers? Who are they? Tell us now my PDP man.

          • the truth

            here is lie lie mohammed’s response via premium times yesterday.

            The All Progressives Congress, APC, has asked President Goodluck
            Jonathan to explain to Nigerians what Asari Dokubo, was doing on the
            plane that illegally ferried US$9.3 million to South Africa, where Asari
            Dokubo, another Nigerian and an Israeli were arrested, according to a
            published report.

            In a statement issued in Abuja on Wednesday by its National Publicity
            Secretary, Lai Mohammed, the party said since the federal government
            has taken ownership of the funds by saying the National Security
            Adviser, NSA, Sambo Dasuki, issued the end-user certificate for the arms
            purchase, it stands to reason that the same government will know the
            involvement of all those aboard the plane.

            It said, therefore, that the federal government has a lot of
            questions to answer on the whole deal, including who was involved in
            procuring the arms and for the purpose the arms were meant to serve.

            APC said the questions become pertinent because even the NSA, who
            issued the end-user agreement for the purchase, does not and cannot
            purchase arms for any of the armed services. The Service Chiefs have
            separate budgets from the NSA for arms purchase.

            ”Under our Constitution, the NSA is an adviser and has no executive
            powers to deploy troops from any of the services or purchase arms for
            them. That the arms purported to be purchased from South Africa were
            ordered from the office of the NSA is nothing but a mere fabrication,
            and raises serious questions about the motive for the purchase.

            ”Nigerians will therefore like to know on whose behalf Asari Dokubo
            was purchasing arms. This is very crucial because Asari Dokubo has been
            threatening that Nigeria will not know peace if his benefactor,
            President Jonathan, is not re-elected. Therefore, Nigerians will like to
            know whether he has started stockpiling arms to make his threat a
            reality, since elections are due in a few months’ time.

            ”If these arms are meant to fight insurgency, as the government has
            claimed, what is Asari Dokubo’s business purchasing arms for the
            Nigerian military, if indeed they were for the military? Does it not
            occur to the Nigerian government that this man who once took arms
            against the state may not have jettisoned his sinister plan against the
            same state? Which country will ever allow a man who once carried arms
            against the state to now be purchasing arms for the same state?

            Even if it is true that he is purchasing the arms for the state, what
            prevents him from also using the opportunity to purchase arms for his
            own sinister motive? Could this be why Asari Dokubo has been talking
            publicly and confidently, without official censure, that President
            Jonathan must be re-elected or Nigeria will not know peace again?” the
            party queried.

            ”In our Press Release on Tuesday, we again asked President Jonathan
            to come clean on the US$9.3 million and US$5.7 million deals. We also
            asked him to tell Nigerians the identity of the two Nigerians who were
            on the plane that illegally ferried money to South Africa. Now that the
            Nigerians are known, and they are the President’s men, the story has
            taken a new dimension,” it said.

            APC said since those who claim to be fighting for Nigeria’s unity may
            actually be the ones working against it, since those who lay claim to
            patriotism may actually be any but patriotic, it is more urgent now,
            than ever, for the National Assembly to take these cash-for-arms deals
            seriously, instead of dismissing the concerns of Nigerians on the basis
            of some rules as the House of Representatives has glibly done.

            The party commended the media for keeping the story alive and for
            working hard to unearth the identity of the Nigerians aboard the
            ill-fated plane that illegally flew money into another country in
            violation of that country’s laws and all known tenets of decency.

            It called on the media, in pursuance of its constitutional role of a
            watchdog, not to relent in exposing the circumstances surrounding the
            cash-for-arms deals, which have seriously embarrassed Nigeria in the
            comity of nations and which have the potential to threaten Nigeria’s
            unity, going by the latest revelations.

            Look, I’ve cleaned my glasses twice and re-read your reference which I appreciate…
            Quite frankly, you owe me an apology for saying Alhaji lied by insinuating that Asari Dokubo was still in jail in Zulu land. There is nothing like that in all of his statement. He simply said Asari was on the plane which I’ve cleared the air on in today’s debate… what’s your problem? Have you forgotten your simple comprehension of elementary school days?

      • Charlie

        Hausaman Alhaji Yola, please shut up! None of the three passengers on Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor has been released by the South African Police. They have all been in detention till now. So, what nonsense are you talking about? Come on, buzz of or join the thinking people here in saying Lai Mohammed and his APC have goofed, again.

      • the truth

        they are still in prison mr yola, didnt you hear lie lie mohammed yesterday. y must you be this partial. the 2 nigerians according to lie lie mohammed yesterday are in jail, how come asari is in mecca? didn’t u read asari’s response were he detailed his whereabouts on the same day and proof. u must be blind. y didn’t premium times paste asari’s response.

            You need injection in the neck to straighten your head. Asari was arrested in Soweto and I’m certain of that if you don’t know. He flew to Saudi Arabia as a decoy just like he flew back to Cotonou to return in a thug-convoy after it became public knowledge Dumbo sent a jet to retrieve his terrorist. Mumu!

          • Maria Nguwanzu

            Dear Editor,

            I am a proud South African. I enjoy reading Premium Times because its reports are wholly factual and written by highly educated journalists with deep knowledge. I cannot say the same for some outsiders who send in their comments. I live in Soweto. No Asari-Dokubo was reported arrested here. Not that i want to enter this Nigerian debate, not at all, but just to put the facts out. In my country, police arrests are logged and docketed. Any South African citizen can look up the police digital base to see who is under arrest or declared wanted in his province.

          • Wähala

            Stop deceiving yourself… you are the eccentric @Otile claiming to be in Soweto. I caught you praising yourself and you changed your handle name to @pere, @popular demand, @Robbie, etc. Do you know what name is on Asari Dokubo’s Republic of Benin passport? Mumu, you think you are the only fraudster alive… Get Lost! Omo gbana… druggie!

          • Otile

            Wandaa, what are you talking about? What did I do to you that merits this kind of wild accusation? Why do you take pleasure in linking me with these names of your enemies? None of them before God and man is me. I am quite apart from any other person. Almighty God in his infinite mercy created me unique. I am not saying that I am better or worse than others, but I am unique by God’s design. Don’t wrongfully accuse me of these things. Read their comments and mine, compare and contrast, you will see that my style is different. Again I am not claiming to write better or worse than any body else.
            One thing is certain, that is, my own English is influenced by deep
            knowledge, insight into what many people may never be privileged to
            know, guided by proven insight. From time to time I exchange nasty jokes with you and some other rascals just for the fun of it. I am not what you think I am, you have to see me in person to know me.

(ii) Who are the two Nigerian money launderers who President Jonathan and Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor used to launder $9.3m on Pastor Oritsejafor’s private plane?

    Gej’s government has damages this Nation’s PR severely and the only solution now is for him to resign, and if he refused to resign Nigerian should show him the way out come 2015.

    • the truth

      how? but lie lie mohammed serially lieing to nigerians since 20bc has not abi?

      • Factual

        I think Nigerians should believe that Asari Dumbkubo is one of the two Nigerians on the plane. This is because had it been Asari is a free man, he would have since come out and started shouting all over the place.But it has been three weeks now and no one knows his whereabouts. So Nigerians must suspect that he was arrested in the gunrunning trip.

        • the truth

          are u sure you are following the news. asari dokubo gave a press response as soon as lie lie mohammed made the comment. don’t u see he is in hajj now. men read other news sites apart from pt. premium times never posted asari’s response to lie lie mohammed because they wanted to deceive people like you.
          here is the response from asari mr non factual

          Leader of the Niger Delta People’s Volunteer Force, Alhaji Mujaheed
          Dokubo-Asari, on Wednesday distanced himself from the $9.3 million
          botched arms deal in South Africa, saying he had not been to the country
          since 2002.

          His denial came on the heels of a call by the All Progressive congress
          that the Federal Government should explain Asari’s involvement in the
          botched deal.

          But reacting to the APC’s statement, Asari in a telephone interview with
          journalists from Saudi Arabia where he is presently performing the
          2014 Hajj, said the last time he visited South Africa was in the 2002
          and could not have gone to any country without a visa.

          He said, “Can you enter any country without a visa? No person can enter
          any country without a visa. Presently, I am in Saudi Arabia performing
          my Hajj as the Amirul Hajj of Bayelsa State and this can be confirmed. I
          flew Flynass from Kaduna on the 27th. So, it is really a shame that Lai
          Mohammed who has defiled the name of Allah has become a pathological
          and award-winning liar.

          “Nobody enters any country without a visa and I have not been to South
          Africa since 2002. My passport is present. I flew Arik airline from
          Lagos on the 27th and went to Kaduna where I flew Flynass airline and
          came to Saudi Arabia.

          “APC has reduced itself to a party of liars just the same way their
          presidential candidate, notorious liar and confirmed dictator, General
          Buhari, stage managed an assassination in order to gain cheap popularity
          and where more than 100 people were killed and he has not been put on
          trial. The evil they wish me will be visited on their home.”

          • endingNaija

            Can you tell us the two Nigerian money launderers please if Asari Dokubo is not one of them? Can Asari Dokubo sue please to clear this? It is simple matter. If Asari Dokubo is not the money launderer, let me him go to court please and clear himself.

        • the truth

          y don’t you throw him off the presidency. why didn’t u address the fact that lie lie mohammed lied to nigerians, y try to divert attentions to gej and forget the subject on ground. yesterday lie lie mohammed made a statement that asari was in the plane, now asari responded with facts as to his innocence and now your lie lie mentor is saying he got his information from a gossip online news. do you see the logic? lie lie mohammed is your savior, this serial liar. u remember when he came to apc newspaper premium times and said kwankwaso was barred from entering ekiti by jonathan and his forces everybody cursed jonathan, only for kwankwaso to show pictures and his press secretary stating that was a lie and he was not stopped. did lie lie mohammed ever apologise to u and i for openly lieing or did he retract his statements? remember when lie lie mohammed came to the news outlets to say jonathan sent forces to distabalise the osun elections and jonathan was abused again, only to find out that this security operatives were requested by rauf and apc for the conduct of the elections. u want me to continue?

          • King Carlos

            Look at you, were where you when asari was arrested in Benin republic? Your president hurriedly sent a private jet to ferry him back to aso rock. And besides that, Asari is more outspoken than his response, he would have threatened fire and brimstone if truly, he was not on that plane.

            And this thing is not even hard, asari should urge Jonathan to name names of the Nigerians on board, in order to clear his name.

          • the truth

            with all due respect did you take your time king carlos to read asari’s response?

          • Mr Igbo Sanity

            Asari is not a spokesman for jonathan regime . Jonathan regime should tell us who is on the plane or SUT THE F UP!

            your lack of common intelligence is quite worrisome, instead of addressing issues, small minds like you lash out curses and abuses, i don’t blame you. if your mentor and godfather could bracingly lie to nigerias with no recourse how about you his follower. asari was accused of flying in the jet and asari responded back, and you are telling me jonathan should respond for asari.

          • kick ’em out

            I am suspecting this written response said to be issued by Asari is released by FG and PDP to deceive Nigerians. This is not how Asari DUMB-KUBO respond to issues. In the past we have seen how he spit fire at those opposed to his financier Jonaharam and also when he was arrested in Benin Republic. So this is very unusual of how he respond.

          • the truth

            did you read the response or do you want me to send it to you?he is currently in mecca partaking in hajj how do you want him responding?

            There is no need to tell me that you are not Pdp or Apc. That’s your own way of hiding the TRUTH. But the fact remains that you are a Jonathanian and a Pdp apologist. You can continue to deceive those ignorant minds about your neutral stand on issues but not me.

But i don’t know what went wrong along the line, you cannot hold to the TRUTH and NEUTRALITY as you always preach and claim to have.

          • Nigerian

            No, You don’t seem to understand me my friend Mr “the truth”. I am trying to be Neutral like you always want people to be. But what i am still not clear about is your “neutrality”on issues because i have not seen any of your comments that you say the truth about the situation on the ground. Throughout the discussion about the Money laundering of $9.3million and $5.4million, you were busy defending the FG on something which is clear to everyone. Just today, you were also trying to defend Mr. Mbu on his power-drunken style of handling issues. You seem to always be one sided, and that is the side of Mr. J…. and his cronies as well as that p**ty? So this is what I still cannot understand about your definition of TRUTH and NEUTRALITY. Any help?

            President “the truth” Goodluck Ebelo Jonathan, Nigerian tax payers are waiting for your word on the identities of the two Nigerians you as President and your friend Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor used to launder $9.3m to South Africa. You should please know that you have said that the money belongs to Nigeria. If this is so, it is wrong for you to allow our money to sit in South Africa. We Nigerians are the tax payers. We pay your salary as President. We employ you as President. So President Goodluck Ebelo Jonathan , Can you please in the name of TRUTH look at us your employers (Nigerian people) in the face and tell is who the two Nigerians you sent to launder $9.3m are. Mr. “the truth” can you help? Mr. “the truth” Can you help to REDEEM the real truth or do you want to remain unredeemable parroting unredeemable truth? Let us know. Nigerians are waiting for you.

          • the truth

            so you know more than onsa? onsa has told you they have documents to prove that this was meant for weapons, nigerian government says is for weapons, the us ambasador just gave reasons why the us dont sell arms to nigeria. now you will always stick with the apc agenda which tells you it was for laundering, the same apc that told you asari was in the flight and one of the two nigerians, remember south african authorities stated that those 2 nigerians are still in custody,they told u and you believed only to find out they got their news from a gossip site nairaland. i would always stay neutral mr ending nigeria. never drawn to party politics

          • endingNaija

            President “the truth” Goodluck Ebelo Jonathan, you claimed you sent the two Nigerian money launderers to South Africa $9.3m. You broke Nigerian laws. You broke South African laws. The name of the Israeli collaborator was released. You did not release the names of the two Nigerian launderers you sent . Why? “the truth” can you REDEEM this truth since you are close to the presidency of Goodluck Jonathan? Or do you want to remain un-redeemable?

          • Tony

            Don’t mind people like endingNaija, the only thing they will believe is what APC says or anything negative about the FG. This simply shows you the direction we are heading towards as a country.

          • Tony

            Now you will say a simple answer will clarify everything but you know you are saying the truth. APC came out to tell the whole world that Asari was one of the Nigerians, you believed. Asari has come out to say he is in Saudi and he is not one of the Nigerians, you don’t believe, but you would have believed if he said he was on the plane. My brother, even if GEJ comes out to answer, your type will not believe so there’s really no point for him to speak. The FG has said the money was for arms, you didn’t believe, so what do you want GEJ to come and say?? Do you want him to say Asari was in the plane or you want him to say the money was for arms?? When the South Africans have finished their investigations they will come out with their report so why not be patient and wait. But then again, you wont believe their report if their report clears the FG but will only believe if the FG is found to be guilty. Double standards.

        • Abel Wariboko

          The Govt has given documentary evidence that the money was meant for arms yet you still insist it was money laundering, is it the passengers on the plane that you will believe? Till today some of you are carrying propaganda that the world Bank, not only$50b dollars is missing in nnpc

    Very clear words from the APC,yet some people are blinded by PDP money or even rice they have lost their sense of reasoning. Why not ask your government why the name of the Nigerians on the plane is being kept secret? Does this not show that the FG knows a lot more than it has told? The silence of the presidency on this matter since it broke out despite protests from many quarters and even the attempt by the PDP lawmakers to prevent this issue being debatedores in the House of Reps? How does any sane person ignore all of this? And instead of commending the APC that has continously strived to be the voice of the ordinary citizen who cannot be heard,some are condemning the party,how ridiculous?

    • King Carlos

      You are right, thats how Nigerians have been gullible over the years. Some have forgotten that PDP owes nigerians explanations more than apc. Lai Muhammed has been consistently ecposing the shortcomings of the Jonathan administration. He has not flinched in the face of criticisms and tslks with fact.

      The apc seems to understand governance more than the pdp.

  • justice

    Why can’t the apc as a major political oppostion party and a shadow govt demand all the necessary information from the SA authorities? Or are they another arm of the pdp?

    • Wähala

      Because you don’t look for something in your sokoto in Sokoto!

      • justice

        But wouldn’t it have made more sense and credible if they apc have all this information from source. Atleast it will stop my brothers from killing themselves online. Even you had to soothe a brother with the promise of odeku after friendly fire.

    Lie Lie Mohammed who is the Nigeria in Egypt that supply arm to Boko Haram? Who is that middle man in Central Bank that help transfer money to Egypt to buy arm for Boko Haram. All these question you never asked and never answer. Show who you are working for. APC is Boko Haram party as they don’t like anything that will kill their boys

  • Ogom

    “Nairaland”?

    That is where Lai Mohammed Lai Mohamed got the information that Asari Dokubo was on the plane?!

    My God.. Papa Mohamed, I know the internet is new to you, but Nairaland is NOT a credible source.

    This story is now officially dead, unless of course, PDP incriminate themselves by admitting their guy was actually on the plane 🙂

    • Udoji A. Ikeji

      @ Ogom:

      Lai Mohammed lacks good judgement. That a story appears on a website is no reason that the story should lead Lai Mohammed by the nose, even if he’s always incapable of reasoning properly of his own volition. Common sense still dictates that he (Lai Mohammed) and his look-alike staff members exercise sound personal judgement before, again, plaigarizing the bare assertions on the website as the original findings of the All Progressives Congress [APC] party.

  • adetolure taiwo

    If you people are with common sense, you could have
    now discovered that APC are strategized to bringing Jonathan government down and I am very sure before 2015 APC will perish and buried like dead body.

  • wode

    On one side, Lai/APC goofed in this case with his reference to online media.

    On the other side, APC has help put more force on the FGN to name the Nigerians if indeed Asari is not one of them and there are not more to the issue than we are suspecting.

    Why did the US magazine that put jonathan as the 6th richest African president just take his name off.hmmm is it because of threat of been sued.I know premium times wouldn’t post that news

  • Mr Igbo Sanity

    Jonathan has stolen Bilions of dollars NOT the lousy 100 million dollars. For starters jonathan accoarding to Nigerian Senate STOLE or has NOT REMITTED $20 Billion dollars or Nearly 4 Trillion naira OIL money! the biggest HEIST in the history f the planet! Jonathan is worth at a minimum 20- 30 Billlion dollars!

      “In Nigeria, the pauperized many have sent a memo to the criminally-rich few:
      “We will not allow you to enjoy your ill-gotten gains in peace. We will hound you
      and pursue you everywhere you go. When you buy your Hummers, we will snatch them.
      When you send your children to expensive schools, we will kidnap them. When you retreat
      to your billion-naira homes, you will have to sleep with one eye open. With every knock,
      you will panic and tremble, fearing it could be nemesis at the door”.

    I have never seen as much anger in Nigeria as the tirades against government officials today.
    The eventual outlet of this rising popular anger may be violent and bloody if care is not taken.

    • No Comment

      “It is no secret now that Nigerians hate their rulers; but when Nigerian “prayer warrior” masses
      now start to curse and pray for the death of their rulers, then there is a crisis. There is always euphoria
      and jubilation whenever a member of the Nigerian “thiefocratic class”; i.e.; President, Governor, Senator,
      House of Reps member, Minister or local government chairman, dies”.

      “When the plane of Governor Danbaba Suntai’s of Taraba State crashed, i placed a call to several friends
      i consider somewhat “God-fearing” and decent. The first response i got from each and every one of them

      is ‘make them all die, we are praying for the next one to die’. Surely, there is justifiable un-precedented
      hatred for the ruling class like never before in the history of the country.”

          A REVOLUTION IS COMING TO NIGERIA

          I always enjoy reading your verbal ‘battles’ with Wahala. Both of you make the difference here. You enliven discussions. Well, i also used to think Nigerians are bleeding hearts who choose, like retards, to be donkeys for their government officials to ride roughshod and robbed at will to their faces. But i have recently changed my mind. I now believe that Nigerians are long-suffering but surely not daft.

          All over Lagos state, for example, usually emollient Yoruba youths are now fully armed with pistols and revolvers – furiously killing at will, in defiance of all laws. Corpses severally litter the long-stretching Badagry Expressway today. And now, Lagos Island itself is reminiscent of Fallujah in Iraq, as Lagos youths shoot at anything that moves at anytime. By 10.00pm Lagos is locked down under the rule of guns. Now, if that is not a revolution already in the making, what then is it?

          • Ola Majekodunmi

            “What is about to happen is going to be like a film show.
            Something greater than the Justice Oputa panel will be set up
            in Nigeria to try these corrupt politicians. God will use this crisis
            (Boko Haram/insecurity) to raise up a leader who will cleanse the
            society. The person will have the heart of a lion, like Jehu in the Bible.
            Most of these politicians, if they are not dead, will end up in prison.
            This is what God is saying.”

            “Nothing is working; the worst corruption is in Nigeria. There has never been

            corruption as worse as this. The name of Nigeria is now corruption.

            We are sitting on a keg of gunpowder. Something worse than Boko Haram

            is about to happen. We are looking at total darkness in the nation.

            There’s going to be a revolution. The poor will overtake the rich.
            You’ve not seen anything yet. You’ve not seen the real Boko Haram.

            A worse Boko Haram is about to happen”.

            Alhaji Raji Fashola is what a government official should NEVER be: corrupt, roguish, financially reckless, and, un-accountable to the people of Lagos state whose taxes he blithely spends at will,
            simply as the spirit directs, and, without ever tendering public accounts, in a supposed democracy.

            God bless you my brother. Often people try to silence me because they would like me to keep mute over certain issues that ail our society. I guess because of their vested interests they feel I am putting sand into their garri. I mean well for every Nigerian, and I want all of us to be fair to one another.

            As for me and my brother Wähala, ba wahala, as the saying goes: when a Greek meets a Greek there is a tug of war. I enjoy his writing. He is some intellectual.

    When the people’s anger boil to the point of explosion ! Then the fulani barbarism better watch out ! We the bamajuje of northern Nigeria have suffered more from northern feudalism than any region in the entire country ! Our identity Our religion ! Has been colonised and renamed ! We have prayed for long that the unjust chains that our oppressors wrung around the necks of our fore fathers be broken in our life time ! People of odua extraction ! People of igbo extraction ! People of the SS ! People of the middle belt ! Let us come together and let the oppressors see the red of our eyes and let those who formed and sponsored boko haram in the guise of apc know that our fury will make boko haram look like the girls guide because we can no longer see you slaughter our people ! Insha Allah we will win this fight and forever bury the inordinate ambition of tinubu and buhari ! Only the will of the creator will hold ! Amin

    Can someone help in educating this old lying machine called Lai Mohammed that Dokubo bothered to answer them for reasons best known to him and I would not have bothered if I was him?!

    So what if APC is not satisfied with Dokubo’s answer??? The onus of proof, is it on Dokubo head or Lai Mohammed and his ‘Tinu-rufai’s’ APC???!!!

    If they are satisfied with Dokubo’s answer, let them go ahead and present incontrovertible evidence of Dokubo’s presence in that flight to Nigerian, or shut their stinking lie-infested ‘gutter’ – for once!!!

    • Jude

      I believe Lai Mohammed should be taught a lesson, otherwise he’ll keep telling lies at his age.
      Asari Dokubo should him for one billion Naira. That may teach Lai Mohammed the hard way.

  • Ijeuwa

    Since the government said it was the one that sent the people and the money to SA, then let them tell us who are the two Nigerians on board the plane. Or are they ghosts like BH as Jumbo claimed? Nigerians should stop being gullible. This is not about political parties. This is about your reputation and your money! Govt should simply come out and say who those TWO NIGERIANS are!!!!!!!!!!!!
