Failure of the Amnesty international to leave the country, the group vowed to go into the streets protesting the presence of the international group in Nigeria
Amnesty International has been asked to leave Nigeria over their ‘unfavourable’ report about Nigeria’s security agencies by a human rights advocacy group.
The group under the aegis of the save humanity advocacy center, gave Amnesty International a seven-day ultimatum to immediately vacate the country claiming that Nigerians have had enough of their “absurdity and evil machinations.”
Comrade Ibrahim Abubakar, the group’s executive secretary while addressing a press conference in Abuja yesterday said failure to quit the country at the expiration of the ultimatum will result to street protest, Leadership reports.
Abubakar insisted that Nigerians could no longer accept the deliberate act of sabotage and indirect compromise of national security by Amnesty International
He said: “To this end, we are opening a register of protests in our office to collect the signatures of Nigerians, who are resentful to the destructive activities of Amnesty International as well as their dubious reports of hate and espionage on Nigerian soil. And failure of Amnesty International to respond to this plea as stipulated, they would incur the wrath of Nigerians, who would have no option than occupy Nigeria on the streets, until government compels Amnesty International to leave the country.”
According to him, the latest report of Amnesty International which alleged human rights violations against the Nigerian military and other arms of security in combating acts of terrorism, separatism and extremism in the country is another indication of the organization’s continued quest to undermine Nigeria’s security.
He said: “we are worried and indeed, sad to notice that each time peace and normalcy is returning to these troubled parts of the country, Amnesty International, an international human rights body mindlessly punctures the essence of this peace by cooking up baseless reports that maliciously indict and disparage efforts of the Nigerian security architecture, by alleging unsubstantiated human rights violations.
“We have noticed that each time Amnesty International wail for criminal gangs or terrorists in released reports, Boko Haram terrorists crude and barbaric attacks, including slitting the throats of captives with knives, gain momentum and the tempo of violent insurrections also heightens in the country.
