The Federal Government of Nigeria has described the reported formation of Biafra Customary Government by Asari Dokubo as a “theatre of the absurd by a joker seeking attention’’.

Speaking with the News Agency of Nigeria on the development in Lagos on Monday, the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed said President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration will not be distracted by the absurdity.

“I am sure you have heard of the theatre of the absurd, that is the best way I can describe it.

“If Asari Dokubo wants to form and run a phantom government, I think he is free to do so.

“This administration will not be distracted because we still have a lot to do.

“We are not ready to give any attention or time to a joker like Dokubo who is just looking for attention.

“We will just take it as one of these entertainment things.

“The beauty about Nigeria is that it is never a dull country, you must have one thing or the other to entertain you,’’ he said.

Dokubo, leader of the Niger Delta Peoples Salvation Force, announced himself as the leader of the new Biafra Customary Government.

The phantom government was announced with names of some leaders by one Uche Mefor, who claimed to be its head of information and communications.


  1. For peace sake Nigerians should allow Biafrans to go, dont wait till what happens in Egypt because of the isrealites happen before Biafrans should be released to go , we are Isrealites so we want to go.

  2. Call him a joker if you choose to but what do Nigerians call your Government? Government of BANDITS and TERRORISTS. Government that kidnaps it’s citizens, negotiates with itself and pays itself ransom. Confused government. Terrorists, Bandits, Herdsmen, Kidnappers and Criminals have representatives in this APC Government. God will punish you and your evil Government. Idiot. Keep calling him a joker until it dawn’s on you Northerners that you are no longer wanted in the South East and South South. The South West are presently fighting it out with you. Chasing you animals away from their region. You are now regarded as a pandemic.
