A group under the aegis of Global Centre for Conscious Living Against Corruption (GCCLAC), has called on members of the Shiite sect to apologise to the Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Tukur Buratai.

The group also blamed the sect for worsening the incident, by refusing to resolve the issue amicably.

In a press briefing held by the National Coordinator of GCCLAC, Dr. Gabriel Nwambu, and Women Leader, Hajia Maina Abubakar, the group said “We want Nigerians to get this fact very clear; based on our findings, the fact that somebody is a military personnel or an officer does not insulate him or prevent him from enjoying the fundamental human rights as entrenched in the constitution.

“We are saying he narrowly escaped death, and for those who have gone biased to say that there was nothing bad, that the army was busy killing people, it is important to note that the Sergeant in the US Marine in Wowood was murdered with just a knife. So, dangerous weapons of all sorts by the mob constitute a major threat to life.”

You will recall that the Nigerian Army accused the members of the Shiite sect of attempting to assassinate the Chief of Army Staff. Lt. Gen. Tukur Buratai.
