105 Missing Nigerian Soldiers Killed By Boko Haram Buried Secretly By The Military

105 nigerian soldiers killed boko haram

Nov 29, 2015 – 105 Missing Nigerian Soldiers Killed By Boko Haram Secretly Buried By The Military

An NGO, HUMAN RIGHTS WRITERS ASSOCIATION OF NIGERIA (HURIWA ) has demanded a transparent investigation of the widespread allegations of secret burial by the military authorities of over 105 soldiers reportedly killed last week during an ambush by the dreaded Boko Haram sect, in Borno State, North East, Nigeria.

The Rights group in a statement signed jointly by the National Coordinator Comrade Emmanuel Onwubiko and the National Media affairs Director Miss Zainab Yusuf, called for “a more transparent and accountable investigation of the entire scenario and for the Federal Government to inform Nigerians of the state of affairs of the current counter terrorism war including providing clear, unambiguous and concretely verifiable evidential information on the number of casualties as a way of honouring the heroes who have been killed whilst defending the territorial integrity of our Fatherland and as the best way to provide succour for their loved ones.”

HURIWA recommended that the United Nations (UN) African Union (AU), Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), credible International and national Non-governmental groups including Amnesty International; Human Rights Watch; National Human Rights Commission of Nigeria (NHRC) and respected Nigerian based Non-Governmental bodies should be constituted into a panel of investigators which must include representatives of the Red Cross/Red Crescent Society and Faith based organisations including representatives of the Nigerian Military to investigate the veracity or otherwise of the claims and counter claims as regard to the whole saga.

    Nonsense!!! If u are not even sure whether they were killed or not then why the headline? U are requesting for proper investigation of the allegation and at the same time telling us that the soldiers were actually killed by the sect! Don’t just understand! The NA are in better position to tell nigerians what really happened not the opposition party. If truly such thing happened don’t u think that Boko Haram would have claim responsibility shortly after the attack? U are not doing nigerians any good by always giving pronouncement to these evil men all in the name of politics. Most of the blogs and so called human right association are more concerned when the soldiers are affected than their success! Nigerian Army have recorded huge success in the fight against Boko haram but u guyz will prefer to give the glory to The sects. Please whatever u called urselves, kindly allow the military men to do their job and let peace reign in the land.

    I’m surprised that some persons think that this kind of incidence cannot happen in Nigeria. Is it not in this same country that chibok girls were kidnapped and nothing is to be heard from them yet? As for me, anything is possible in Nigeria.
