The House of Representatives on Tuesday asked President Muhammadu Buhari to direct his security chiefs to prosecute officials of the police and the military, who have brutalised Nigerians while enforcing the lockdown order.

Following a motion filed by Nkiruka Onyejeocha, the House resolved to “condemn in its entirety the abuse of the fundamental rights, especially brutalisation and extortion and the killing of innocent Nigerians by security operatives enforcing the COVID-19 lockdown across the country.” 

Sighting a report by the National Human Rights Commission, she said, “The House regrets that within the initial period of the lockdown, security operatives had, according to the National Human Rights Commission, extra judicially killed 18 innocent Nigerians in Abia, Delta, Ebonyi, Kaduna, Katsina, and Niger states.

“The House further regrets that as of April 13, 2020, when the lockdown was extended for another two weeks that figure was more than the total number of Nigerians killed by the virus.”
