Amnesty International Condemns The Brutal mass execution of Biafrans: Sends Team to Nigeria
Amnesty International has condemned the brutal and mass execution of Biafrans in their home land by occupational forces of nigeria . They have called on the Nigerian government to respect the rule of law and stop using excessive force against Biafra people. Lucy Freeman senior researcher for Amnesty International in London speaking to the Ludovica of International Business Times said “our organization has sent correspondence to Nigeria who has documented instances of the Army using excessive and brutal force against innocent Biafran civilians“.
Freeman said, “What is happening in Biafra is not a conflict situation and the law enforcement model that has been used is not appropriate,” Freeman said. “It is not appropriate to use lethal force on unarmed Biafra protesters, even in case of a violent protest”.
Amnesty International further said, “The Nigerian government is obligated to carry out investigations that have to be independent, impartial and effective,” she said. “It is not enough to deny allegations and people need to be prosecuted and brought to justice.”
