Defence Headquarters: Amnesty International Is Working For Boko Haram And ISWAP by ExAngel007(f): 6:38pm On Feb 14
The Defence Headquarters has condemned a
recent report released by Amnesty
International (AI) on activities of the Nigerian
army in the North-East region.

Amnesty International who alleged that
troops of the Nigerian army razed
down villages and unlawfully detained locals
in a rescue operation, were accused of
deliberately supporting the acts of terrorism
perpetrated against Nigeria by the Boko
Haram and the Islamic State of West African
State (ISWAP) terror groups.

In a statement released by the Defence
Headquarters' Acting Director Defence
Information Brigadier General Onyema
Nwachukwu, the non-governmental
organization were accused of undermining
Nigeria’s Military campaign against terrorism
in the North East.

The statement reads;
“The Defence Headquarters (DHQ) has
taken cognizance of yet another
falsified report by Amnesty
International (AI) in a campaign of
calumny targeting the Nigerian
Military and deliberately supporting
the callous acts of terrorism
perpetuated by Boko Haram Terrorists
(BHTs) and Islamic State of West
African Province (ISWAP).

“This inglorious campaign is contained
in a recent report alleging
employment of unlawful tactics of
razing down villages and unlawful
detention of locals by troops. This is
line with the AIs usual mannerism and
tenacious efforts aimed at disparaging
the Armed Forces of Nigeria (AFN).

“The Defence Headquarters wishes to
state unambiguously that the
allegations being touted by AI are
nothing but a betrayal of its lack of
in-depth knowledge of the goings-on
in the North East (NE) theatre of
operation.

“It is expedient to state that troops of
Operation Lafiya Dole who are
conducting Counter Terrorism and
Counter Insurgency Operations in the
NE do not employ arson as an
operational tactic. It is a well-known
fact, going by the modus operandi of
BHTs, that they have more often than
not engaged in the atrocious acts of
looting and burning of villages, as well
as destroying infrastructures.

“It therefore, beats ones imagination
that AI is attributing these atrocities to
AFN troops who are legitimately
defending the country guided by
extant rules of engagement and
operational codes of conduct.

“AI must understand the fact that
Nigeria is at war against terrorism in
the NE and that the troops have a
constitutional mandate to protect lives
and property, even if it means
conducting an evacuation to save and
secure lives of civilians in the conflict.
Protecting civilians by evacuating them
from the line of fire during combat is
not a violation of the international law
of conflict or a war crime.

“It is rather a commendable effort by
the troops to prevent collateral
damage during combat. Our troops
should therefore be commended for
making deliberate efforts to evacuate
civilians in order to protect their lives
and property.

“It is also crucial to point out, that
troops deployed to fight terrorism in
the NE do not attack or raze down
villages, communities or settlements,
rather they launch offensive on
terrorists’ camps, enclaves and hide
outs.

“Based on actionable intelligence,
persons who provide logistics and
other forms of support to the
terrorists are arrested and subjected
to thorough investigation by a
combined team of professionals
drawn from the intelligence
community of the Armed Forces and
other security agencies. Anyone not
found culpable is not held in custody
for further investigations.

“AI must therefore put an end to its
reckless distortion of facts in its
desperate bid to satisfy its
puppeteers by undermining Nigeria’s
Military campaign against terrorism in
the NE.

“We urge members of the public to
please discountenance AIs report, as
it is not a true and realistic reflection
of troops’ counter terrorism operation
in the NE”

Oga Defence, you guys should do your work honestly and stop looking for who to blame..

Is it Amnesty that gives the Boko guys caught 4star treatment and later Releases them into the public?

Is it Amnesty that gives the soldiers inferior weapons to dt of the Boko boys?

Is it Amnesty that do not properly motivate the soldiers?


If the Fight against Bokoharam is Honestly done, there will be no one to blame...

Oga, Nigerians know how our poorly trained army behave.

We have very poor civil-military relation in Nigeria.

OK, if you evacuated them for their safety, why burning their houses?

What's the time frame for the evacuation.

Gen Buhari have already started blaming the locals for the continued existence of Boko Haram so it's safe to say you have been affected by his body odour and is taking it out on the civilians.

We know who is working for the terrorists in Nigeria.

We know he resides in Abuja.

We also knows he pretends to head the most populous black nation on earth.

Trying to divert public attention and fool the unsuspecting!

How does one divert funds (meant to train and motivate officers and buy equipment) to buy properties in Abuja, Dubai etc, then hope that it’s officers who are frustrated, ill equipped and poorly motivated, will behave themselves and apply internationally acceptable combat techniques? And finally, hope for a favorable report from Armnesty International?

Keep fooling yourselves!

Bubu and his brethren are slowly oozing into the SW and they want amnesty international out of the area.

I pity the Amotekun cheerful. They don’t yet know that their security outfit has been overrun by the caliphate stooges.

I will tell them good morning soon

The DHQ should rather concern itself with the hundreds of BH fighters been released back into the battle field through the dubious ex-terrorists reorientation program.

Someone should help me ask these incompetent idiots whether it's AI that's openning Northern borders for influx of thousands of terrorists into Nigeria from Niger, Mali and Chad. Maybe AI are the ones releasing thousands of boko haram ''Repentant Terrorist'' to the public after slaughtering thousands of lives. Perhaps it's AI that's advising buhari's islamist regime not to prosecute fulani terrorist caught with large cache or arms several days ago in their quest to spread their genocidal activities all over the country. Rubbish.
The only sponsors of terrorist activities in Nigeria is buhari's bloody fulani led regime.
Useless country.
ONE NIGERIA IS DEAD!
