With Your Human Rights Abuses, You Can’t Get Help From The US, Campbell Tells Buhari Government

A former United States Ambassador to Nigeria, John Campbell, has said the Nigerian government may never receive any financial or technical assistance from the US and its allies in its fight against insecurity until the federal government addresses human rights abuses by the security forces in the country.

He stated this on Friday during a virtual conference on the maiden edition of ‘Grow Nigeria Conversation’ with the theme, ‘Reversing the Flourishing Economy of Kidnapping and Banditry: Immediate & Long-term Solutions’ monitored by SaharaReporters.

Campbell said the US laws prohibited the American government from giving technical expertise to any country whose security forces are accused of human rights violations.

He urged the Buhari-led government to ensure it restores public confidence and trust in the security forces, especially the police.

Speaking on the amnesty granted to bandits, Campbell said it is illegal and would not bring a solution to the problem.
