Speaking in an interview with Saturday PUNCH , Dokubo – Asari said , “ They should stop crying like babies and stop behaving like cowards because the people who are killing them are not gods . The first law of survival is self defence .

“ Till today , people in Plateau , Benue , Kogi , Taraba and Kogi states are still eating their cows. Those of us that are not eating their cows are extremists .
