New Creek Dragons Decries Amnesty Office Being Hijacked By Northerners, Calls On FG, EFCC And ICPC To Investigate Dokubo, Jack Over Recent 300 Million Naira Contract Fraud.
Yenagoa______ A new militant group known as the King of the Creeks (KOC), in collaboration with the Creek Dragons CDs, has decried over the recent hijack of the Presidential Amnesty office for Niger Delta ex- agitators by Northerners, stressing that Prof. Charles Dokubo is using the Northerners in the office to loot the Amnesty funds.
The militant group further alleged that Prof Dokubo awarded himself 300 million naira ghost contract last week to fake company without given evidence of what the money was used for. They called on the federal government, President Muhammadu Buhari to set up an investigative panel, as well as EFCC and ICPC to thoroughly investigate Charles Dokubo, Isobo Jack and others over the whereabout of the recent 300million naira that disappears from the Amnesty office.
Speaking to newsmen in Yenagoa on Sunday 15th September, 2019, the leader of the group, Commander Charles Gbafamor Opueni expressed displeasure and disappointment that Prof Dokubo does not know what to do in the Amnesty office. Instead of him to serve and attend to the demands of the Niger Delta agitators, he is busy serving the interest of the Northerners in regards to retain the office for second time.
Commander Gbafamor regretted the Amnesty office that is suppose to be handled by Niger Delta people is now being controlled by Northerners, whereby the current head of procurement, as well as the Director of Finance is from Kogi State and not Niger Deltans. This indicates that Prof Dokubo deliberately planted the Northerners there in order to siphoned the Amnesty funds through the Hausa’s without any trace to his personal accounts.
According to group, said; ” We the King of the Creeks, a new militant group that merged with the Creek Dragons are formally expressing our discomfort.l Commander Charles Gbafamor Opueni, on behalf of the group cease this medium to call on President Muhammadu Buhari to set an investigative team to investigate the Amnesty boss, Prof.Charles Quaker Dokubo.
Presently as we speak Mr.President, there is problem in the Amnesty office. Prof Charles Quaker Dokubo is not matured to handle this programme. We hereby call on you Mr.President to call Prof.Charles Quaker Dokubo to order. The Amnesty programme is supposed to bring peace and sustainability to Niger Delta as a whole, but the reverse is the case. The Amnesty programme belongs to Niger Deltans but now, the Amnesty programme has been hijacked by Northerners.”
lmagine the current head of Procurement is from Kogi State and also the Director of Finance is from Kogi state which is not a Niger Delta state. They have chased out Niger Deltans and Ijaws from the office. Why must the Amnesty office be runed by Northerners and non-Niger Deltans? Dokubo can not steal money and hide it abroad, so the best thing he could do is to use the Northerners they have installed in the Amnesty office to steal money and hide it without any trace. Prof.Charles Dokubo is a confusionist. He can not manage the Amnesty programme. The President knows why he’s still keeping him in that office.
As President Buhari want problem in the Niger Delta, he should continue to keep him. Prof Dokubo is a fraud. After Kingsley Kuku paid ex-militants housing allowance of #150,000 (One hundred, fifty thousand naira), since that time till today, no housing allowance has been paid. As Prof Charles entered, he is supposed to think of the house allowance but he is just thinking of himself only. He has awarded so many fake contracts to fake companies. Last week, he awarded himself of 300 million naira contract. Let him explain the works he has done with the money in Amnesty office. Since he became amnesty boss, he has not gone to any ljaw village. All where he goes is Abroad. We called on the Federal Govt to investigate him now.
Commander Gbafamor alleged that, the 300 million naira contract money was paid to Isobo Jack account. This is not rumor, rather is based on proof and evidences. Let the ICPC, EFCC and federal govt begin investigation on Prof Charles Dokubo and his gang of fraudsters. Prof Charles is a thief. He steals more than Paul Boroh. Boroh is not a thief, he is a good man when compared to Dokubo. Where are the generators, plasmas and other items Prof Charles claimed to buy that worths 60 million naira in Kaiama? They are no where to be found. He made arrangement to steal all the items without anyone noticing. Federal government should ask him of the 60 million naira. Dokubo can not manage the Amnesty office, he must go.
We are begging the Minister of State for Petroleum, Chief Timipre Sylva to call on the President to look into this matter. We know that Chief Timipre Sylva was among the people who fought for the initiation of the Amnesty programme. We called on Timipre to use his good office to call on the President to look into this matter, because we need change. There is fire on the mountain and except a change is initiated in that office, the fire will keep on burning. Prof Charles only awards fake contracts to embezzle the money meant for the Amnesty programme. He also took advantage of peoples wife just to give them contracts.”
We are begging the ICPC and EFCC to please leave our ljaw brothers and sisters in the Amnesty office and focus their attention on the real fraudsters and thieves in that office. We are giving federal govt a week ultimatum to resolve this problem if not, we will shut down the Amnesty office.
If this request is not done, anything the Federal govt sees, they should take it in good faith. We have made our complaint and it is left for the Federal govt to respond to our request, the group stated.
