A group, Centre for Africa Liberation and Socio-Economic Rights (CALSER), allegedly sponsored by the COAS Tukur Buratai, had on Wednesday asked Amnesty International to leave the Country within seven days or attract civil disobedience at its offices in Abuja and Lagos on a scale that will make the campaign of looting and arson it facilitated appear like child’s play.
However, Amnesty International Nigeria in a series of tweets, has insisted it will continue to carry out its activities devoid of Government, religious or commercial interests.
Amnesty International is a human rights organization and not affiliated to any government, ideology, interests, political, religious or commercial. We have been working on Nigeria since June 1967.
Despite threats to our lives, through faceless organizations and sponsored protests, we will not stay silent. In the face of efforts to evade responsibility or to smear our organization, we will continue to raise our voices whenever and wherever we see injustice. #EndSARS
We will continue to call on the Nigerian government to use its authority and resources to investigate all allegations of human rights violations and abuses, including; rape, torture, arbitrary detentions and unlawful killings. #EndSARS #LekkiTollGateShooting
