US faults military approach to insurgency
by Kamarudeen Ogundele
United States has blamed the Federal Government for the excessive use of force by Nigerian security agencies in the fight against Boko Haram members. In a statement released on the web site of its Embassy in Nigeria, the US also condemned alleged extrajudicial killings, prolonged detention, and disappearances of suspects by security agencies.
It said such “tactics tarnish Nigeria’s reputation as an emerging leader and a stable democratic government”. Bemoaning the reported killings of innocent civilians in the raid on Baga in Borno State, the US said “force- based approach to counterterrorism is increasing extremism and decreasing confidence in the Federal Government”.
