ENUGU, Nigeria (VOICE OF NAIJA)- The Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB), says that the Senate must be held responsible for the killings in the country.
According to MASSOB, it was disheartening that the Senate in particular was watching helplessly, while many Nigerians were being killed in various parts of the country on a daily basis.
The group’s National Director of Information, Sunday Okereafor, stated this during an interview with the Sun.
Okereafor said the insecurity challenges rocking the country were similar to what had happened in countries like Liberia, Serbia and Yugoslavia.
He said that leaders of such nations were meant to face the law for their failure to protect the lives of the citizens.
He said, “The Senate must be held responsible for the killings in the country. The Senate building is very beautiful, but there is no foundation.
“It will fall one day. How can the Senate be there and people are being killed? Tomorrow, you will hear, ‘We will impeach Buhari’; next tomorrow, you will hear again, ‘We will impeach Buhari’.
“Finally, when they give them money, they won’t say anything again. They (senators) should be ashamed of themselves. They should be ashamed that as the pillar of democracy in the nation, they can’t do anything.”
On the ongoing strike by members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, he said the Buhari regime was paying lip service to their demands, because many top politicians like had their children schooling abroad.
“Most of those who call themselves elites are there and ASUU is on strike for over five months. The government cannot even pay the teachers. But they send their children to France, Germany, America and Israel, and abandon their education to die. Most of them are building refineries overseas and Nigeria refineries are in a bad shape”, he said.
“MASSOB and the Biafra Independent Movement are asking, who are they deceiving? Today, tomorrow, we will impeach the President. After collecting money, you won’t hear from themsenators again. It is a shame!”
He added, “Nigerians voted them into office. But what are they doing to help protect the people? How can they be there and insecurity is rising every day?
“The Senate must be brought to justice for allowing the killings in the country. Today they will say impeach Buhari and when they give them money, they will keep quiet. Who are they deceiving? MASSOB and BIM are asking.”
