The Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria (HURIWA) has called on Nigeria’s Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Taoreed Lagbaja, to base his counter-insurgency strategies on legality and accurate information.

HURIWA criticized the misclassification of North West-based terrorists as bandits and urged military leaders to address internal saboteurs collaborating with these terrorists, which has led to increased military casualties.
