Due to the recent allegations by Amnesty International, President Buhari has assured that his government will closely study the report released and take the appropriate action.

In a statement released by Garba Shehu, he indicated that the president has already given the Attorney General of the Federation his first assignment, which is to investigate the allegations laid against top ranking military officials including the retired Chief of Army Staff, Ihejirika.

“The president is quite disturbed by the allegations contained in the report, the next step is to look into the allegations and confirm or disprove the disturbing details. This is in addition to the internal inquiry he asked the armed services to undertake by themselves,” he said.
He also emphasised President Buhari’s commitment to human rights, and his promise that there would be no human rights abuses under his government.

“Any allegation of human rights abuse that takes place during the tenure of President Buhari’s government will be swiftly investigated and dealt with,” he said.

The report by Amnesty International, published June 3, accused the military of being responsible for the deaths of 8,000 prisoners.
