Every Nigerian has suffered in the hands of government and security agencies – Comedian — Broda Shaggi

Nigerian comedian and actor, Samuel Animashaun Perry, popularly known as Broda Shaggi, has expressed worry over the current state of the nation.

Broda Shaggi took to his verified Facebook page and lamented the division between ethnic and religious groups in the country as being portrayed by some citizens clamoring for secession.

He noted that every Nigerian has been subjected to one form of cruelty or unfair treatment by government and law enforcement agencies.

The comic star also stressed how successive governments have continually betrayed the people, even though citizens keep trusting them.

He wrote; “There was a time when the ‘WAZOBIA’ ideal was popular; this Nigeria was our own and it didn’t matter what region you were from.

“Every line in our pledge meant so much. It was sincere and backed with faith.

“With each tenure of the government, we realized that the people we trusted our nation with kept betraying us until we became a jaded people.

“It’s now ‘dog eat dog’ out here, the people supposed to uphold the rule of law treat us like we are the enemies. Everybody has experienced some form of pain, cruelty, and neglect from the government and its law enforcement agencies.

“Earlier this year, I put together a theatrical performance where I wrung out my soul and those of my collaborators. It encapsulates our desires for a better Nigeria, one with hope and love. I hope we don’t give up fighting for our land, I hope we summon the bits of our living selves and become “Brutus to their Neros”.
