The Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria, HURIWA has written to the new Chief of Army Staff, General Farouk Yahaya, asking him to respect the rights of civilians in the fights against insecurity in the country.

The Rights Writers urged the COAS to prioritize respect for human rights in internal military operations.

HURIWA while urging the COAS to ensure that his men adhere to the human rights law in the discharge of their duties, expressed optimism that General Farouk Yahaya would prioritize "respect for civilians as the cornerstone of his policies and operations".
