Nigerian nongovernmental organisations may have issued a seven-day ultimatum to the global watchdog, Amnesty International, to leave the country.
A human rights Advocacy group, Save Humanity Advocacy center, which stated this gave the organisation seven days ultimatum and urged the Federal Government to ensure the international group leaves the country.
Executive Secretary of the group, Comrade Ibrahim Abubakar, explained that Nigerians will be forced to hit the streets in a protest if government effort do not yield any result.
Said he, “Nigerians can no longer tolerate these deliberate acts of sabotage and indirect compromise of National security by the human rights organisation
“We are opening a register of protests in our office to collect signatures of Nigerians against the destructive activities of the International group, if they did not leave within seven days, they would incur the wrath of Nigerians who would occupy their offices in the country ” he said
According to Abubakar, those who pose abstacles which hinder Nigeria success must not be tolerated, adding that matters like insecurity are issues of National priority and should be handled with seriousness.
He said, “we are worried and indeed, sad to notice that each time peace and normalcy is returning to these troubled parts of the country, Amnesty International, an international human rights body mindlessly punctures the essence of this peace by cooking up baseless reports that maliciously indict and disparage efforts of the Nigerian security architecture, by alleging unsubstantiated human rights violations.
“We have noticed that each time Amnesty International wail for criminal gangs or terrorists in released reports, Boko Haram terrorists intensify their crude and barbaric attacks, including slitting the throats of captives with knives, gain momentum and the tempo of violent insurrections also heightens in the country.
“Even in the last edition of their report, Boko Haram terrorists struck in Borno a day after it was released, a confirmation that Amnesty International must have been working in consonance with terrorists.” he explained
He said despite the widely circulated videos of Boko Haram atrocities in Nigeria, Amnesty International has not condemned it.
