Buhari studying report on Army-shiite clash

President Muhammadu Buhari has assured international and local human rights groups of appropriate response on the report of the judicial inquiry into the clash between soldiers and members of the Shiite movement in Nigeria, led by Sheikh Ibrahim El-Zakzaky.

Presidential Spokesman, Garba Shehu, said in a statement on Tuesday that the President is studying the details of the report before announcing appropriate response in due course.

“The President’s commitment to human rights remains unchanged because it is a cardinal component of the democratic order,” Shehu stated.

President Buhari had, in December 2015, during the Presidential Media Chat, said that he was waiting for the report of the panel of inquiry before making appropriate response.

Shehu said that “The present administration believes in due process and the rule of law; therefore any response to the report would follow this principle.

“The Federal Government will continue to act in the larger interest of the public to prevent such violent incidents.”
