The Nigerian Army partners African Bar Association to promote rule of law

The Nigerian Army on Thursday 7th of February 2019 in Abuja promised to partner and collaborate with the African Bar Association (AFBA) to promote the rule of law and human rights of Nigerians and Africans in general.

The Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Tukur Yusuf  Buratai made this statement while receiving  a delegation of the AFBA  led by its president, Mr. Hannibal Uwaifo at the army headquarters in Abuja. General Buratai commended AFBA for championing the interest and rights of Africans in general.

He said: “We are happy to hear that one of our own, the Director of Army legal services, Major General Yusuf I. Shalangwa is the head of the Army Committee of the AFBA. We also   appreciate   what you have done in many African countries including Burundi, The Gambia, Sierra Leone and your efforts for the development of Africa, the promotion of human rights and the rule of law in the continent.

“Our officers and men are up to the task in the challenges in the North Eastern part of the country including the Boko Haram, Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN) and their efforts to blackmail the Nigerian  military by threats to take them to the International Criminal Court (ICC). Our rules of engagement are at par with International best practices, this is what we have done.

“We are a very good team to collaborate with, to promote human rights and the rule of law.  We have a  lot of standing rules of engagement, policy  guidelines and  other publications that guide and regulate everything that we do and our engagement. This also applies to our job on arrest, detention and interrogation of persons; all are done within the ambit of the international best practices and the rule of law.
