Amnesty Plotting To Destabilize Nigeria-Global Watch





 The Global Amnesty Watch (GAW) has condemned a recent Amnesty International report on the Nigerian Military, describing it as part of a plot to destabilize Nigeria.

The President of GAW, Philip Agbese who made this known on Thursday during a press conference in Abuja, said it is concerned by the use of International NGOs  by some big countries to undermine otherwise stable countries.

He said: "In this country, the plot manifests in the form of an International NGO, Amnesty International (AI), as would be noted in the past, this entity has issued several reports that openly lie against Nigeria, its government and critical institution, with the sole intent of undermining them."

The 409-page 2016/17 Amnesty International report titled; "The State of the World's Human Rights" said the police and military continues to commit torture and other ill-treatment during the interrogation of suspects or detainees to extract information and confessions.

The report also alleged the death of 240 people including babies in Borno and 177 pro Biafran agitators.

Agbese condemned the IA report, claiming that it openly sided with terrorists, insurgents, separatist and fifth columnists while treating Nigerians as the enemies.

He further argued that the section of Nigeria in the report is the latest in a long series of criminal conspiracy to incite disaffection aimed at destabilizing Nigeria.

He said: "AI is pursuing a sick obsession of defending killer groups like the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) and even accused the military of being harsh in its operations against Boko Haram."

Agbese also said the Global Amnesty Watch (GAW) registered in the United Kingdom is an organization concerned about the efforts to undermine Nigeria and some of the tricks are well managed that some individuals innocently applaud them by thinking they are in our national interest.
