Post created on 10:44 am


An urgent call was made by the Civil Society Legislative Advocacy Centre (CISLAC) in Lagos during the weekend to Federal Government to withdraw soldiers from further performing internal security operations in order to protect the image of the military.

The call became necessary following the increasing cases of extortion and intimidation leveled against some soldiers serving in the different security operations across the country.

According to the Executive Director of CISLAC, Auwal Ibrahim Musa, he said recalling them back to barracks would reduce brutality being perpetrated on civilians by the army who, according to him, are sentinel for external aggressions.

It was during the Organisation’s recent stock taking event themed “Media close-out on the precariousness of protection: Documenting gains, strains and pains from the protection of civilians and civilian harms mitigation in armed conflict” that he gave the advise.

Musa, therefore called on President Muhammadu Buhari to withdraw Nigeria soldiers from streets and cities of the country.
