Defence Headquarters Investigates Allegation Of Extra-Judicial Killing Levelled Against Nigerian Soldiers.

The Defence Headquarters says it takes the issue of human rights violation seriously and will never condone any proven case of abuse by its personnel.

The Director of Defence Information, Major-General Chris Olukolade, in a statement said the military is deeply concerned about the video footages being circulated which Amnesty International referred to in its latest report on human rights violations by the Nigerian Army in the fight against Boko Haram.

The defence spokesman said the military had set up an investigation team to study the allegations by the international human rights body in its latest report saying much of the scenes depicted in the videos are alien to the Nigerian military operations and doctrines.
