Nigeria Has Reached a Boiling Point of Total Anarchy – Amnesty International


Amnesty International has shown grave concern over the height of lawlessness in Nigeria. Having followed the trend of massing killings and human right abuse in Nigeria, beginning with the massing killing of the Indigenous People of Biafra and the role being played by the Nigerian government who have at all times denied its involvement in the massive shooting and human right abuses labelled against them, Amnesty noted that Nigeria at this point in time should be more sensitive in controlling the activities of terrorists in the country.

Amnesty International has warned the Buhari government to be proactive in addressing the clashes between herdsmen and farmers to prevent the total breakdown of law and order.
Director of Amnesty International, Osai Ojigho  is worried that the recent attacks by herdsmen on some communities in Benue State and those recorded in other parts of the country might get out of hand if not tackled squarely.

“We are really reaching a boiling point of total anarchy,” she said.
“If you are to look at how things are developing, there’s a lot of anger from different affected communities and including those who actually are bearing the brunt of losing family members at this time of the year.

“We’ve been following the incessant killings that have been happening in this sort of clashes throughout last year and, of course, at the beginning of the year we woke up to experience another wave at an escalating level that we never thought would get to this point”, she said.
Amnesty International lamented that the governments at both federal and state levels are only doing little to address the issue.
The human rights group has asked them to ensure the perpetrators of the killings are arrested and made to face the wrath of the law.
