Amnesty International Accuses Nigerian Military of “Possible War Crimes”

Feb 14th 2020, 12:23, by RM Africa

02/14/2020 Nigeria (International Christian Concern) – Amnesty International has reported that the Nigerian Military has again conducted possible war crimes against its own people. According to the report, the Nigerian military razed multiple villages on January 3 and 4 of this year. During supposed clearing operations, the military rounded up the villagers from three villages, Bukarti, Ngariri and Matiri in Borno State. All of these villages are along the Maiduguri – Damaturu Road, a main avenue for people travelling between Yobe state and Borno state.

This operation was supposed to clear out Boko Haram militants from the area. According to residents form these villages who spoke with Amnesty however, Boko Haram had never been in the area. Not only this, then the Nigerian military announced that they had freed several hundred Boko Haram captives from these villages. Local residents were then moved to an IDP camp where they were left.

Due to this military operation, nearly everyone in all three villages lost their homes, property, and food stores. This has left them destitute and without supplies or money to provide for themselves. The Nigerian Military must be held accountable for these types of brutal tactics which do not stop Boko Haram, but often drive civilians to Boko Harams side. The Nigerian government must investigate and hold those responsible for this injustice accountable. IF they do not, the World must hold the Nigerian government accountable.

Thigibh a nis le buidheachas
n a gheataibh-san a steach,
Is thigibh fòs le maladh mòr
an cùirtibh naomh a theach :
Is thugaibh dha mòr-bhuidheachas,
ainm beannaichibh gu binn.

Psalm 100: 4

"Beware of the false prophets! They come to you wearing sheep's clothing, but underneath they are hungry wolves! You will recognize them by their fruit. Can people pick grapes from thorn bushes, or figs from thistles?
Matthew 7: 15-16 Complete Jewish Bible

Dear friends, don't trust every spirit. On the contrary, test the spirits to see whether they are from God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world.1 John 4:1 Complete Jewish Bible
