Alleged Attack: Nigerian Army Debunks Report Claiming Buratai Is Sponsoring NGO Threatening Amnesty International

The Nigerian Army has dismissed claims that the Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Tukur Buratai, is an advocate of the non-governmental organization, Centre for Africa Liberation and Socio-Economic Rights (CALSER) and threatening to kill workers of Amnesty International.

The organization on Wednesday, November 4, had a press conference where they gave Amnesty International, a global rights group, a seven-day ultimatum to leave Nigeria.

Sahara Reporters while publishing the report, alleged that Buratai was the sponsor of the NGO.

The Army in its reaction described the claim as ”Fake News”.
