How Nigerian Army ‘killed’ Kidnapped Pastor and Labelled him a Militant

The Nigerian army recently killed a kidnapped pastor and afterwards labelled him a militant to save face, Premium Times is reporting.

Excerpts:

A man the Nigerian Army said its soldiers killed as a senior militant in the restive Niger Delta, was actually a clergyman who had been kidnapped days before.

The Army said the man, Andrew Anthony, was killed late August when soldiers raided a hideout of militants in Rivers State ahead of the formal launch of “Operation Crocodile Smile”.

However, an investigation showed that soldiers who went for the operation knew Mr. Anthony was a kidnap victim, yet the Army, in its official statement, circulated his photograph to the media as one of five top militants killed in the area.
