Borno IDPs: "Nigerian Soldiers Raped Us In Camps But We Were Forced To Deny It" by ichommy(m): 10:40am On Jun 06, 2018
Internally displaced persons (IDPs) in the north-east say they are being suppressed from opening up on the alleged sexual abuse ongoing in their camps.

They have also called on President Muhammadu Buhari to send an independent investigative panel to the camps regarding the issue.

Amnesty International released a report alleging that soldiers and members of civilian joint task force (JTF) demanded sex from IDPs in exchange of food.

The military subsequently led some journalists to various IDP camps and at the end, they said no case of sexual abuse was discovered.

“I have interacted with the stakeholders in the camps and they said that the Nigerian armed forces have neither molested, sexually assaulted nor raped any IDP as alleged by Amnesty International’s recent concocted report,” John Agim, acting director of defence information, said during the visit.

However, the IDPs have said they were asked to say “there were no issues” in the camp during the visit.

They spoke in a statement issued Monday, under Knifar, a movement of women IDPs in the region, and led by Hajiya Hamsatu Allamin, a rights activist.

The statement published via the movement’s Twitter handle read: “The military came to Dalori with journalists to ask us displaced women if we were raped. Before the visit, the women were told to say everything is fine, that there are no issues. Is this the way our complaints are handled?

“One of our members was there. She has an 18-month-old son, fathered by a soldier. Too scared and intimidated to speak, she said nothing. No one spoke. Why are we forced to be exposed in such a way?

“It happened to us. It is real. And we formed our group to allow women to get accountability. We have said it before. We are ready to speak but we can not imagine this is the way to do this.”

They asked Buhari to hear their cries and “investigate the soldiers who raped us when we were in Bama.”

“Our children died because there was not enough food, unless we had sex with soldiers,” they said, adding: “We have said it before: we are ready to speak to any investigation team the president sends to us. We only ask it will not be led by soldiers as they are also the ones who abused our women.”

Texas Chukwu, army spokesman, did not answer calls made by TheCable or reply the text message sent to his mobile phone regarding the IDPs’ claim.

It is said that one cannot be a judge in his own cause. Under this regime however, the reverse is the case. They are accuser/accused, judge, jury and hangman. The Rule of Law has been turned on its head.

When Amnesty International report accused the military, officials of the government came out to accuse them of being "unpatriotic" (like they are some parastatal under the government), instead of investigating and punishing the offenders.


The rot that will be uncovered once this administration is kicked out in 2019 will make Idi Amin and Mobutu Sese Seko look like saints.

A man scammed you to get to power by claiming to be a converted democrat, but today treats Nigerians like conquered enemies.

I just don't know what to say. This one weak me. An average Nigerian is so depressed and bitter that any given opportunity with power, we quickly look for the less privileged to oppress and transfer that aggression on. Why would do that to those you are meant to protect? Women who have lost everything? The time has come when we have to just admit and realize that this nation needs divine intervention. The rate of lawlessness has reached an all time high and the system has no solution to it. God will help us. I will never stop believing that Nigeria will be great again.

They are asking President Buhari to commission an inquiry
Don't they know Buhari is a terrorist, just like the present leadership of the Nigerian armed forces.

Nigerian soldiers are very good in raping vulnerable women and children, from Liberia to Sierra Leone,now in Nigeria.


Shekau is still waiting for them in Sambisa but they prefer to destroy helpless women and children.
