Former militant and national leader of the Niger Delta Peoples Volunteers Force, Alhaji Mujahid Dokubo-Asari, has stated his position on the Underage Marriage Bill recently approved by the Senate.

The controversial activist on his Facebook page disclosed his postion on the bill.


 
Dokubo-Asari wrote, “People should learn to respect other people’s sensibilities. We, Muslims have the right to marry when we want or give out our daughters at any age we want. It is not your business and the law must respect our right to do so.

Anything short of that is an infringement on our rights.We did not ask you to marry ladies of that age or give your daughters out in marriage at that age. Plzzzzzzzz respect ours.”
