The Defence Headquarters (DHQ) has accused human rights group Amnesty International of working Boko Haram insurgents in destabilising the North East.
Acting Director Defence Information, Brigadier General Onyema Nwachukwu, made this known in a statement on Friday while reacting to the allegation that the security troops razed some villages in Borno State.
Nwachukwu urged the group to stop what he described as “its reckless distortion of facts in its desperate bid to satisfy its puppeteers.”
He also accused the human rights group of frustrating the effort of the military in restoring peace to the troubled North-east region.
According to him, Nigeria is at war against terrorism but the group is undermining the campaign by the military against insurgency in the region.
