By Senator Iroegbu in Abuja

The Nigerian Army has berated Amnesty International (AI) for its recent report on the clash with members of Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN) in December 2015 in Zaria, Kaduna State, as too hasty, partial, judgemental and subjective.

This was stated at the weekend by the Director of Army Public Relations (DAPR), Col. Sani Usman, in response to THISDAY’s inquiries about the latest allegations by the AI about the deadly confrontation with IMN popularly known as Shi’ites Islamic Sect.

He said that the International Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO) was in a hurry to publish what, it noted, was a premeditated report without waiting for the constituted Judicial Commission of Inquiry set up by the Kaduna State government and National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) to submit its report.

“Please note that if there is any report from Amnesty International as you stated, we believe it is hasty, partial and lacks objectivity. The NGO should understand that Nigeria is a sovereign nation and it should be respected. Already, a judicial commission of inquiry is in place in addition to investigation by the NHRC,” he said.

The AI had on Friday accused the Nigerian military of mass slaughter of hundreds of men, women and children by soldiers in Zaria, saying that the attempted cover-up of the alleged crime demonstrates an utter contempt for human life and accountability,

The human rights watchdog said it has published evidence gathered on the ground revealing how the Nigerian military burned people alive, razed buildings and dumped victims’ bodies in mass graves.

The body claimed that the report titled “Unearthing the truth: Unlawful killings and mass cover-up in Zaria”, gave a shocking eyewitness testimony of large-scale unlawful killings by the Nigerian military and exposes a crude attempt by the authorities to destroy and conceal evidence.

The rights group also stated that more than 350 people are believed to have been unlawfully killed by the military between 12 and 14 December, following a confrontation between members of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN) and soldiers in Zaria, Kaduna, state.

According to the Al’s Research and Advocacy Director for Africa, Mr. Netsanet Belay: “The true horror of what happened over those two days in Zaria is only now coming to light. Bodies were left littered in the streets and piled outside the mortuary. Some of the injured were burned alive,”

“Our research, based on witness testimonies and analysis of satellite images, has located one possible mass grave. It is time now for the military to come clean and admit where it secretly buried hundreds of bodies.”

However, these claims was dismissed by the Army Spokesman, who said that the rights group is acting out a script together with the IMN.

He noted that “he NGO’s hasty report is against the principles of the Amnesty International itself as it is pre-emptive and judgemental”.

DAPR wants AI to wait for government to cook lies and manufacture false witnesses in the name of waiting for judicial commission of Inquiry from El rufai's state and NHRC huh? Jokers!
AI stated facts and if you're not ok with it, counter them by telling us the truth before someone finds himself in ICC.

Is the Nigerian army not hasty, partial and subjective when they massacred over 300 Shiites members?. Were they not playing a script by killing members of Islamic movement just because they blocked the road and had a scuffle with the army chief

And isn't it ironic/laughable the army want AI to wait for NHRC and judicial commission of enquiry by kaduna state government that is seeking death sentences on 50 Shiites members as if the ones killed aren't enough.

Burantashi or whatever he's called, Hellrufai and others that maybe behind this genocide must be brought to book at the ICC to ensure the matter is not swept under the carpet and justice given to those concerned.

Who is fooling who? Army debunks killing the shi..tes and they saying there was a massacre.
I want to categorically say this..... Nigeria hasnt been healed from tge scourge of Boko haram, which also started like the same shi..tes movement and now...hmmm. let's all just be reasonable with ourselves, why are they confronting the military, if they aint up ti something too. Are they even a legitimate group? Yes, tell me about right to peaceful gathering, but they exempted that as soon as they faced the governmental agency saddled to protect them. To me these particular set of people are dangerous, hence killing them is very essential before they start causing another problem. Nigeria must work and exist, free from all internal and external aggressions.

It's so glaring the NA acted on script. Because after the first massacre, they went to their leader's house and continue the killings. If they really wanted to arrest the leader, why did they shot at everyone they saw in his house?


It's ICC baby grin

. .a gross murder of the most peaceful Muslim in Nigeria. shiit are not terrorist. Sunnis are terrorist. the Sunnis want to suppress and eradicate this minority Muslim from the north. they also planning antics on how to also eradicate the peaceful Christians. they are looking forward to do it through religious and migration policies. by help from funllani grazing bills this are planned works and intentional. the south need to start eating ram, goat and chicken. God created so many meat. leave Fulani and there cattle's they will be forced to leave when people stop eating cows. word of wisdom.

Make una keep quiet. When the army under Gej killed bokoharam, AI attacked the military and the opposition were happy with it. Buhari is now in power and the army carried out a holocaust on innocent citizens, yet they want AI to praise them. Which kind mumu we get ?

One question, these Shiites u talk of, are they animals? Cos your jaundiced thoughts up there made me almost think you were referring to some animals.

Now what of the shooting of unarmed ipob protesters? NA is known for its extrajudicial killings and wanton display of lawlessness so this isn't news.

Yes the Shiites may have been lawless, but you don't use lawlessness to nullify lawlessness as the army did by the massacre of hundreds of people.

Burantai will have his day in ICC soon.

Buhari may follow too...

I believe you will say this to the families of the abducted chibok girls.
I hope one day you will also justify scores of civillians killed in the Northeast , not to talk of scores of milkitary men killed because one idiot thought he can kilk for God.
I still want you to say this to many displaced people all over Nigeria due to Boko haram threats.

Pls justify all this... i stand by my word. If their killings averted the threat we would face by their uncultured lessons. So be it!

Terrorism should have no space in this world.
