Human Rights Group Alleges South-East Governors, Politicians May Be Behind Continuous Killings, Not IPOB

In regardz to the ongoing killings in South East Nigeria, the Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria (HURIWA), has stated that some governors and the Nigerian Government’s officials may be behind the killings and insecurity in the region.

HURIWA alleged that some political and public office holders responsible for the killings were making efforts to undermine the agitations of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) in the South-East. The human rights group made these statements while requesting the Nigerian Army to respect fundamental human rights of citizens in the South-East region of Nigeria.

HURIWA also asked the Nigerian Army to probe the killings in the South-East because some officials of the Nigerian Government might be responsible for insecurity in the Southeast. In a statement by its National Coordinator, Mr.Emmanuel Onwubiko, HURIWA said the Nigerian Army must work with the mindset that members of IPOB might not be responsible for the killings in the region.

The Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria further states that the Nigerian Army has launched multiple military exercises covering the South-East region of Nigeria aimed at checking the excessive cases of attacks targeting strategic national security institutions, personnel and the killing of civilians by unknown gunmen, and called on the the military high command to abide by rules of engagement, especially that of having respect for Human Rights of civilians and adherence to the principles of the rule of law, amongst others.
