Campbell, a former United state Ambassador to Nigeria who served from 12, 2004 to July 19, 2007, has asked president Muhammadu Buhari to repudiate IGP Usman Baba’s rhetoric and methods of the Use of force on the citizens in Southern Nigeria.
Recall that Baba has recently said the security services are not to be constrained by human rights considerations in their bid to destroy the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), a separatist group in support of independence for the former breakaway Republic of Biafra, and its security wing, the Eastern Security Network (ESN).
John Campbell took to his twitter account to say such rhetoric gives a green light to human rights violations in countering Biafran secessionism.
