More than twenty civil society organisations have urged the Buhari led administration to cancel the report sent by Amnesty International over the shooting of #EndSARS protesters by the military.
Oyogist.com learnt that the organization accused Amnesty International for destabilising Nigeria on their recent reports concerning the shooting of peaceful EndSARS protesters by The Nigerian Army.
In a statement, the CSOs noted that the roles of some organisations “masquerading as human rights groups in fueling the crisis cannot be overemphasized.”
The statement added: “It is our firm conviction moving forward that Nigerians must not sit and watch how an organisation in the likes of Amnesty International truncates our nascent democracy. This would not happen, and Nigerians from all walks of life must stand in defence of our dear country in this critical point of our existence.
“We are using this medium to send a strong message to the promoters of Amnesty International that indeed they have tested the patience of Nigerians and moving forward we shall resist a further fueling of conflict in Nigeria.
“Our message is that Amnesty International has overstayed its welcome in Nigeria and indeed the time to leave is now. We stand in solidarity with Nigerians in this regard, and Amnesty International must leave Nigeria in the interest of peace and tranquility.
“Nigerians would no longer tolerate any group or association that is against our collective interest as a people and as a country. The time is indeed now. And this remains sacrosanct.”
