Staffers of Amnesty International have been threatened with mob action by a Non-governmental organisation in Nigeria.
The NGO identified as Centre for Africa Liberation and Socio-Economic Rights CASLER) gave human rights group, Amnesty International a seven-day ultimatum to leave Nigeria or face massive destruction of their offices in Abuja and Lagos.
Princess Ajibola, convener of CASLER, issued the threat at a press conference organized by the group on Wednesday, November 4.
“For Nigeria to rebuild, Amnesty International must be out of the way. CALSER, therefore, gives Amnesty International a seven-day ultimatum to leave Nigeria.
The NGO’s failure to leave Nigeria will 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. Its staffers will be treated the same way that innocent policemen and our children lynched by mobs were treated,” Ajibola said
This threat comes days after Amnesty International alleged that 12 persons were killed in the shooting of #EndSARS protesters on Tuesday,October 20. While the Lagos state government says only two persons were killed in the incident, Amnesty International insists that 12 persons were killed. (tori.ng)
