NIGERIA IS ‘NOT VIOLENT’
NIGERIA has rejected the findings of a report on violence in the country and accused the UN of blaming the government of President Muhammadu Buhari.
“While we agree that the violence in Nigeria, or in any country, is a major concern and that there is a rippling effect, we are disappointed that the rapporteur was silent on intra-group violence,” presidential spokesman Garba Shehu said in a statement.
Shehu defended the government, saying it was trying its best to end the violence.
Local and global rights groups accused Nigerian security agents of abuses and summary executions.
