President Muhammadu Buhari has shown interest in a report by Amnesty International alleging potential war crimes committed by the Nigerian military, especially in its war on Boko Haram.
The rights group alleged widespread torture and extrajudicial killings leading to the deaths of about 8,000 prisoners.
The AI report indicts senior military commanders, including serving and past service army chiefs like Ihejirika, Badeh, and Minimah.
PMB’s spokesman Garba Shehu said the president had received the report and would review it because “we will not tolerate or condone impunity and reckless disregard for human rights”.
Other Nigerians have, however, faulted AI’s report, saying it’s less interested in the carnage and destruction wrought by the evil terrorist group. Army spokesman Chris Olukolade has issued a statement condemning the report and AI’s indirect support for Boko Haram.
