In spite of the robust stock of literature on the problem of state failure in Nigeria and Africa, there are scarcely any rigorous studies that link state failure to the growing security menace in the Nigerian oil industry.

The study makes some thoughtful suggestions on how to re-capacitate and re-position the state to effectively provide security to the oil industry, the host communities and beyond.
