''President Muhammadu Buhari has reacted to allegations levelled by the Nigerian Army against Amnesty International.
PREMIUM TIMES reported how the army on Monday morning accused Amnesty International of plotting to destabilise Nigeria.
The army’s allegation came three days after it accused UNICEF of encouraging Boko Haram activities in Nigeria’s North-east.
In a statement on Monday evening, President Buhari’s spokesperson, Garba Shehu, said the federal government is increasingly concerned about the role that Amnesty International is playing in the war against terror in Nigeria.
“While President Muhammadu Buhari cherishes and encourages the noble ideals on which institutions like Amnesty International are founded, the organisation’s operations in Nigeria seem geared towards damaging the morale of the Nigerian military.''
