Video: investigate Nigerian army for war crimes – Amnesty

Human Rights group The Amnesty International has called for the investigation of senior members of the Nigerian military for alleged war crimes in Boko Haram fight.

The group which is based in London says as many as 7,000 people have died while in the custody of the Nigerian military.

It also claimed that many other captives in the custody of the military were starved, suffocated, and tortured to death.

In a chilling video released by Amnesty International and forwarded to some Nigerian Army men could be seen rendering what could be described as street justice to people suspected to be members of Boko Haram.

Some of the suspects Amnesty said were pointed out by informants of the military with no direct evidence of link to Boko Haram which Amnesty described as an “extremely violent group”.

Amnesty called on Nigeria’s new government led by former military leader President Muhammadu Buhari to open an investigation into the deaths and violation of the human rights including war crimes by the military.

It urged the government to include some senior army men who were named in the group’s Wednesday report into the investigation.

Major Gen. Obiida Ethan, Gen. Azubuike Ihejirika, Admiral Ola Sa’ad Ibrahim, Air Chief Marshal Alex Badeh, Gen. Kenneth Minimah made up the most senior Nigerian army men on the list.
