This is the 62 year old retired school principal who killed his mother in 2003, dried her remains and stored them in a cupboard in a room that served as his shrine for ten years. He was arrested by the Imo State police last week after a family member discovered the gruesome sight.

“I am not afraid of arrest. I am saying it bold and clear without mincing words, Nigeria will be history if I am arrested. I am daring them to arrest me if they can. If they don’t, they are cowards and shame on them.”
These were the words of Asari Dokubo, a militant leader, daring the police or anyone to arrest him for his threat to set Nigeria on fire if President Goodluck Jonathan is not elected in 2015.
The President, the police, the military, the SSS and others kept quiet in a move many believed to be due to the fact that Asari is close to the President and enjoys billions of Naira contract from him.
Anyway, the Police now have something to say. See their claims below...
Police Force spokesman, CSP Frank Mba said, “If we find anybody committing any offence, we will bring the full weight of the law on them. But, we will not go out of our way to get involved in chasing frivolities; we are not politicians, we are a law enforcement agency.
The attention of the management of Guinness Nigeria Plc has been drawn to a press release issued last Friday by the Advertising Practitioners Council of Nigeria (APCON) and signed on its behalf by one Nkechi May-Nzeribe. In that press release, Ms. May Nzeribe stated that APCON has, through its Advertising Standards Panel (ASP) Committee lifted the ban placed on Guinness Nigeria Plc because “Guinness complied by withdrawing all advertisements that had been scheduled to run and apologized over the broadcast of Guinness Foreign Extra Stout adverts on Digital Satelite Television (DSTV) outside the prescribed periods allowed by the APCON Code of Advertising and Promotion guidelines”. Nothing could be further from the truth!
