You Are Not Making Progress - European Union Criticize Nigerian Military

The European Parliament, the lawmaking branch of the European Union (EU) has stated that the Nigerian military's fight against the Boko Haram sect is not making any progress.

There?s no progress in the fight against Boko Haram - EU

In its analysis given on January 16, 2020, the Union which is made up of 28 countries that work together as a unified political and economic block, cried over the bad state of the security situation in Nigeria.

The Parliament criticised the alleged wrong treatment of children in military detention facilities, they reminded the Buhari-led government of its duties to protect the rights of children and make sure care and protection are given to everyone affected by conflict and terrorism.

The European Parliament also requested that the Nigerian government gives the UN access to its military detention facilities and sign a legal handover protocol to make sure that children arrested by the military are swiftly sent to the suitable child protection authorities in Nigeria.

The parliament said it;
“Deplores the terrorist attacks which have taken place in the country; reiterates its concern about the protracted crisis in Nigeria and the volatile security situation in the north-east, and strongly condemns the repeated violations of human rights, international and humanitarian law, whether based on religion or ethnicity. 
“Condemns in particular the recent increase in violence against ethnic and religious communities, including the targeting of religious institutions and worshippers.
“Deplores that progress has stalled in the fight against Boko Haram, ISWAP and the increased occurrence and severity of suicide attacks and direct attacks against military positions; recalls that Nigeria’s President Buhari was re-elected in 2019 on the promise of defeating the violent extremism promoted by Boko Haram and other terror groups, and urges the President to implement his campaign promises. 
“Urges the Nigerian authorities to guarantee respect for human rights in the country, and to protect the civilian population from terrorism and violence; insists that such efforts must be conducted in full accordance with respect for human rights and the rule of law, in line with the country’s international obligations.
“Considers any form of extermination of human beings or ethnic cleansing barbaric and a crime against humanity; urges the Nigerian Government to address the root causes of violence by ensuring equal rights for all citizens and non-discrimination legislation; insists, in this regard, on the need to further promote inter-religious dialogue and the peaceful coexistence of citizens irrespective of their religion, engaging with all relevant stakeholders, including the Nigerian Inter-religious Council.”
