Amnesty International Condemns Army Violence Against Islamic Movement

Amnesty International Nigeria has condemned yesterday’s attacks by the Nigerian Army at members of the Islamic Movement who were on a religious procession.

In a series of tweets in its Twitter handle, the foremost Rights Body decried what it described as the “Needless and increasingly frequent resort to violence by Nigerian army against supporters of IMN is unacceptable.”

It therefore condemned the soldiers deadly use of force on the supporters of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria during religious procession in Zuba, escribing it as “highly reckless tactic” by the military, resulting in deaths.

Amnesty recalled that “In Dec. 2015 soldiers killed over 347 IMN supporters in Zaria. Upto now no one has been brought to justice for this murder of unarmed women, children and boys.”
