Mutiny: SERAP supports not to impose mass death on 54 Nigerian Soliders

 Always tune in to (adelove.com) for freshest updates

It would be recalled that on Sunday December 21st 2014, an open letter was written to our noble President, GEJ to pardon the 54 Soldiers condemned to death by firing squad for mutiny (See Open Letter here). This was based on news released on Wednesday December 17 2014.

Now, Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP) has asked a group of five United Nations human rights independent experts to individually and jointly use their “good offices and positions to urgently request the Nigerian government and its military authorities not to carry out the mass death sentences imposed on 54 Nigerian soldiers for what the government claimed was disobeying a direct order from their commanding officer.”

In a petition dated 23 December 2014 and signed by SERAP executive director Adetokunbo Mumuni the group said that, “It is not right or fair to try everyone in mass proceedings, and that such unfair trial should not send someone to the gallows. Imposition of mass death sentences is in breach of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, to which Nigeria is a party. This Covenant limits the circumstances in which a state can impose the death sentence.”

“You have consistently and jointly taken similar actions in the past including with respect to Egypt, and we respectfully urge you to follow this path in the instance case to continue your record of working to end the death penalty in all countries,” the organization urged the experts.

The organization therefore asked jointly by requesting the Nigerian government and its military authorities to quash the 54 death sentences imposed on the 54 soldiers for failing to meet even the basic requirements of fair trials.

Fellow Nigerians, we believe so much on PEACEFUL demonstrations. We are a big supporters of the notable saying and school of knowledge that says “Pen is mightier than the sword”. We can achieve this without shedding bloods, loosing lives or destroying properties on the streets for any violence demonstrations. The Government can still hear our pleads or see our needs without you leaving your office or home. Technology has really helped the world where our voices can be heard.

We are in a techie world. You’re just a click-away from your mobile phones/laptops.  The movement #Let9jaVoiceBeHeard is what fans and everyone are following.  We can together achieve so many things via this movement for better Nigeria. Lots Luv! from adelove

  1. We wil never regret to join Army, it wil never throw down our moral, up up regulars.. we must fight to see peace is roling in nigeria, we ar friend to dead, non of dis 54 soldiers shall be killed..

  2. The Nigeria Army is committed at committing murder. I hope that the disunited United Nations should be able to protect the rights of those men even to mutiny. For there is no smoke without fire. The Army hierarchy should necessarily cross examined it self and be responsible instead of a scapegoat out of those men.

  3. John Paul life is not how you see it pls stop. How will people agree to join the army if the army itself is killing its own.you judge today ask ur self is Nigeria at WAR why capital punishment when the army can discharge or jail them, and remember today the army is just using propaganda those boys are makin name for them selves.
