Owerri attack: Terrorists monopolise violence ~ Falana
Speaking on the Imo attack, Falana said the security architecture of the neo-colonial state has collapsed, hence the monopoly of violence has been taken over by terrorists, bandits, kidnappers, armed robbers and other nihilist forces.
According to him, “A governor has disclosed that there are 30,000 bandits in the North West region alone. That is in addition to the large army of the Boko Haram sect in the North East region. Kidnappers and other criminal gangs have taken over the rest of the country.
“In the midst of the worsening security situation coupled with a nationwide strike by resident doctors the president has left the country to take care of his own health.
“The situation is going to get worse as nobody is in charge of the affairs of the country. Another recession is in the offing as many businesses are folding up while others are withdrawing huge funds from the banks.
“Since the government has lost control of the security and the economy, the choice before Nigerians is to set up defence committees for the protection of each community as a temporary measure.
“For lasting solutions, it is high time that genuine progressive forces embarked on mass mobilisation to prepare the Nigerian people for the ultimate socialist reconstruction of the country,” Falana said.
