A report published on Wednesday, 3rd of June 2015 by Amnesty International, alleging the Nigerian military of wide spread torture and death of about 8000 prisoners will be reviewed by President Muhammadu Buhari.

The report accusing the past service chiefs and current service chiefs of extrajudicial killings suggested that they should be investigated for possible war crimes.

Speaking to journalist in Niamey, Niger republic, Seniors special assistant on media and publicity, Mallam Shehu Garba said Mr. Buhari has received the Amnesty International report which he said contained disturbing allegations.

Shehu Garba said President Buhari gave his assurance that his administration would study the document and act promptly.

“This administration will leave no stone unturned to promote the rule of law, and deal with all cases of human rights abuses.

“Respect for human rights and adherence to the rule of law are the life and soul of the democratic system. We will not tolerate or condone impunity and reckless disregard for human rights,” he said.

It would be recalled that President Buhari travelled to Niger republic to meet with the president of Niger republic and Chadian president to discuss issues on Boko Haram
