The Global Amnesty Watch (GAW) has described the recent report by Amnesty International (AI) about the Nigerian Army as biased, unprofessional and lacking merit which does not reflect the realities on ground.

The President of GAW, Philip Agbese, at a press conference in Abuja on Thursday described the latest report by Amnesty International on Nigeria as a ridiculously new low in a bid to blackmail military and security institutions while openly supporting terrorists, insurgents, separatists and fifth columnists and treating Nigerians as the enemies. 

GAW said: “AI has issued several reports that openly lie against Nigeria, its government and critical institution, apparently with the sole intent of undermining them.”

The Global Amnesty Watch, an organisation out to address the use of international Non-Governmental Organisation (NGOs) by some big countries to undermine their territorial integrity, sovereignty and the national laws of the country said, it is rightly concerned that the plots to destabilise otherwise stable countries is gathering pace instead of slowing down in the face of global outrage over the damage being done.

According to GAW, “it is unfortunate that rather than face the reality and point out the state actors that are exporting suffering across the world, AI is pursuing a sick obsession of defending killer groups like the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Movement for the Actualization of a Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) and even accused the military of being harsh in its operations against Boko Haram even when it admitted that the terror group was committing crimes against humanity.”

GAW further explained that AI failed to recognise the current threats the nation and its citizenry face under Boko Haram’s campaign of terror and horror, and its threat to the collective existence of man in this part of the world. “The NGO threaded a dishonourable path with suggestions that those who commit crimes against the law of the land hide under the cover of human rights to evade the consequences of their actions,” GAW said.

While commending the Nigerian Military for doing their best to halt threats to citizens as exemplified by Boko Haram, IPOB, Avengers and other groups complicit in crimes against humanity, Global Amnesty Watch sees Amnesty International as constantly demonising nations that are battling terrorism and setting the ground for killers to embed themselves among migrant populations to spread to these other peaceful countries.

Since the formation of GAW over one year ago, it has undertaken researchers and visits to countries where the people are facing one threat or other for the purpose of verifying the claims usually made by NGOs and other groups that profit from crisis”. Whereas AI relies on two newspapers to write its report on countries across the world, Global amnesty watch, will ensure that does not only visit scenes of incident but will go further to consider actions with existing legislature and in conformity with the Universal Convention on Human Rights,” they revealed.
