Amnesty International: Security Forces Killed 115 People in South-East by Hillard: 5:42pm On Aug 05
IPOB: Amnesty International reveals number of people killed by security forces in South East

Amnesty International has alleged that no
fewer than 115 persons have been killed in the South-East by security operatives
between March and June.

Amnesty International, in its recent report,
said relatives of the victims denied the
deceased were part of the ‘unknown
gunmen’ that were attacking security
agents.

In the report entitled, ‘Nigeria: At least 115
people killed by security forces in four
months in country’s Southeast,’ the
organisation further claimed that many of
the victims were deposited at government hospitals in Imo and Abia states.

Furthermore, the human rights watch
organisation quoted some hospital
sources as saying that all the victims
deposited by the police had bullet injuries, adding that at least 21 security personnel were also murdered within three months in Imo.

According to AI’s report, more than 500
were arrested after police and military
raids.

Amnesty International, through its Country Director, Osai Ojigho said there are evidence which painted a damning picture of ruthless excessive force by security operatives in Imo, Anambra and Abia states.

“The evidence gathered by Amnesty
International paints a damning picture of
ruthless excessive force by Nigerian
security forces in Imo, Anambra and Abia
states,” it noted.

The report added that security agencies in Nigeria have committed a catalogue of
human rights violations and crimes under
international law ranging from mass
arrests, torture, excessive unlawful force
among others, in the South East.

The report noted, “Nigeria’s government
has responded with a heavy hand to
killings and violence widely attributed to
the armed group calling itself Eastern
Security Network, the armed wing of the
Indigenous People of Biafra, a pro-Biafra
movement.

“According to government officials, the
ESN killed dozens of security operatives
and attacked at least ten public buildings,
including prisons and police stations, from January to June. In response, security forces comprising military, police, and Department of State Services have killed dozens of gunmen, as well as civilians, where attacks have been committed.”

Eyewitnesses told AI that the security
forces engaged in excessive use of force,
physical abuse, secret detentions,
extortion, burning of houses, theft, and
extrajudicial executions of suspects.

The human rights groups estimated that
the death toll from violence between
January and June 2021 in Anambra, Imo,
Abia, and Ebonyi states might run into the
hundreds, adding that the police said ESN
fighters killed 21 of its personnel in Imo
State alone.

The Eastern Security Network, ESN, the
security wing of the Indigenous People of
Biafra, IPOB, was accused by the Nigerian
government and its security agencies of
carrying out series of attacks most notably on Imo Police headquarters and Imo Correctional Centre, where many prisoners were set free.

The jihad govt has sent its army to wage war against Igbos simply because they demanded for a sovereign State. They know that if Igbos succeed in leaving this death-trap, other tribes will follow suit and they (d foolani parasites), will lose their footing.
That's why they keep importing thugs to commit crimes and then pin it on Igbos...so they can have d excuse they need to kill innocents. Vile govt.

The @AmnestyNigeria just reported that between March and June, Nigerian Security operatives killed 115 people in the south-east and detained more than 500 people.

We all know that the genocidal criminal #Buhari is a Igbo hater. Killing of Igbo civilians will only make this bloodthirsty killer happy. Tyrant Buhari is only happy whenever he murder the innocent.

The International Criminal Court, ICC, should be informed that there is an ongoing genocide in South East Nigeria.

They murdered more than this with their UGM. Innocent hardworking and productive men killed by oafs in uniform for no justifiable reason other than hate for a people.

The atrocious been shamelessly committed in Southeast by unprofessional state security agencies are dehumanizing and barbaric . Any security personnel that consciously or carelessly kill innocent southeast will never go unpunished physical and spiritual.

Re: Amnesty International: Security Forces Killed 115 People in South-East by DOTian: 5:31am On Aug 06
This won't make front page. Just as the story about the Fulani massacre at Enugu State yesterday never made front page here! If it was the opposite, every single soul here will be in arms about these igbos. But these are people's fathers, mothers, sons and daughters that are being massacred! By stifling this news from greater public consumption, folks here are enabling the evil pepertrators of these heinous crimes..
