Dokubo, the former Niger Delta Amnesty boss, has reportedly passed away after a brief illness.

According to reports, Dokubo, 70, died at a hospital in Abuja on Wednesday night.

Before his demise, Dokubo was appointed as a Special Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on the Presidential Amnesty Programme in 2018.

However, he was unceremoniously suspended from office in February 2020. He was a Director at the Nigerian Institute of International Affairs, NIIA, before his appointment by Buhari.

Dokubo was born on March 23, 1952. He hailed from Abonema in the Akuku Toru Local Government Area of Rivers State.

Dokubo had his primary and Secondary School education in Abonnema.

He did his ‘A’ levels at Huddersfield Technical College in West Yorkshire. From 1978-1980, Dokubo was admitted to the University of Teesside at Middlesbrough, where he undertook a course in modern History and politics and was awarded a BA [Hons] at the University of Bradford.

He completed his Master’s Degree in Peace Studies, before continuing his doctoral degree in Nuclear Weapon Proliferation and its control.

In 1985, he was awarded his doctoral degree at the same University of Bradford.

He was later appointed a temporary lecturer in the department before proceeding to Nigeria in 1993.
