The Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) under the leadership of Comrade Uchenna Madu has declared Nigeria a failed state even as it opined that the Muhammadu Buhari government has collapsed. The separatist group was reacting to Wednesday’s showoff shame in the Senate chambers of the National Assembly where the symbol of authority, the mace, was forcefully taken away by five thugs.

MASSOB said that political, economical, religious, academic and social events in Nigeria under President Buhari have shown that the group and others in the struggle for the emancipation of the sovereign state of Biafra are on the right track.

A statement made available to journalists in Awka and signed by the National Director of Information, Comrade Edeson Samuel, said: “The unconstitutional and forcefully taking of the mace from red chamber by thugs has shown that Nigeria is a failed and irreparable state that can never stand.

“Imagine a higher chamber where security agents are supposed to be at alert, but reverse was the case. Taking of the symbol of authority means that the government of Nigeria has failed.

“Every senator should return to his constituency because there are no longer constitutional powers backing them. It has also shown that the government of President Buhari has collapsed. If thugs can invade the National Assembly and make away with the symbol of authority without any resistance from the security agents.” 

MASSOB while decrying the situation wondered what the faith of the common citizens in the street will be.

The group threw its weight behind the statement by former Chief of Army Staff, General T.Y Danjuma (rtd.), where he urged victims of killer herdsmen to defend themselves against any attack.

Continuing, the statement said: “It is obvious that President Muhammadu Buhari cannot provide security for the citizens of this political entity called Nigeria. It’s a pity that the senators of Nigeria have also failed their people.

“MASSOB is calling on the people of Middle Belt to rise and defend themselves from Fulani’s ethnic cleansing organised and sponsored by President Buhari and his APC led government.

“The People of Middle Belt should know that over 70% of security agents in Nigeria are Hausa Fulanis and they cannot protect them from any attack carried out by their kinsmen.”
