From Septem­ber last year, when the killings oc­curred, to the re­cent in­dict­ment by NHRC, there have been other killings by these govern­ment or­gans. Not that there are no rules of en­gage­ment or other laws against ex­tra­ju­di­cial killings, but these are ob­served in the breach, with im­punity. There must be a pro­vi­sions in ser­vice rules and reg­u­la­tions that re­de­fine the no­tion of obey be­fore com­plain, and dis­tin­guish be­tween na­tional in­ter­est and the vested in­ter­est of po­lit­i­cal lead­er­ship. The army and SSS must not carry out an or­der that is not in the in­ter­est of the na­tion. Na­tional in­ter­est must su­per­sede the per­sonal in­ter­est of a leader, ir­re­spec­tive of his or her po­si­tion in the coun­try. These in­dict­ments should be­gin to ad­dress the prob­lem of im­punity in our life. MUKHTAR Fun­tua, Inuwa Wada Road, Kaduna, 08033850358

I humbly

con­grat­u­late

Prof. Chidi Odinkalu and the NHRC he heads for de­liv­er­ing jus­tice to Apo vic­tims that the se­cu­rity agencies could not give, thereby sham­ing the Na­tional As­sem­bly for cov­er­ing up the truth for their self­ish ends. The Pres­i­dent should ap­pre­ci­ate the Com­mis­sion for up­hold­ing jus­tice and adding cred­i­bil­ity, no mat­ter how small, to his ad­min­is­tra­tion. The pres­i­dent should im­me­di­ately di­rect the com­pli­ance of the rul­ing which is in line with pop­u­lar opin­ion of the gen­eral pub­lic. 08035898640
