Amnesty International Calls For Closure of Giwa Barracks


Amnesty International has called for the closure of Giwa Barracks in northeast Nigeria saying the military barracks houses a detention center cum place of death.

In its report, the human rights group said 149 detainees, including seven young children and four babies have died “in horrendous conditions” at the detention centre.

Amnesty International also says it believes that about 1,200 people are being held at Giwa, many of them arbitrarily rounded up during mass arrests.
