Punch Newspaper: Positive Identification: Stop Army operation, Reps, NBA, CDHR tell Buhari

The Nigeria Army announced last month that there was a planned positive identification exercise that as scheduled to commence next month, the aim of the exercise is to purge the North-East region of the country of Boko Haram insurgent members. However the Nigeria Army decided to take the exercise to other parts of the country, where military personnel will stop civilians and ask them for their valid means of identification.

Furthermore members of the Federal House of Representatives in a motion sponsored by Hon Ndudi Elumelu said this exercise is an infringement on the fundamental human rights of the country’s citizens. The Nigeria Bar Association (NBA) also kicked against the proposed exercise. They beckoned on President Buhari to ask the army to stop the planned exercise and make way for further consultations.
