SSS Bows To Pressure, Arrests Controversial Ex Militant Commander, Asari


BEVERLY HILLS, February 06, (THEWILL) - The State Security Service (SSS) Thursday took controversial former militant commander, Mr.

Mujahideen Asari-Dokubo, into custody over inciting statements warning the north of severe consequences if his kinsman, President Goodluck Jonathan fails to win re-election in 2015.

Nigeria's main opposition party, the All Progressives Congress (APC) had earlier demanded Asari's arrest over his unending 'reckless' statements considering that the SSS detained a senior member of the APC, Mr.

Nasiru El-rufai, over a similar comment.
