ABUJA, Nigeria – The Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria, HURIWA, has alleged that Abubakar Malami, the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice has indicted President Muhammadu Buhari as an incompetent Commander-In-Chief.
HURIWA, a frontline activist group made the remark in response to claim that hoodlums in uniform may have attacked End SARS protesters at Lekki toll gate in Lagos State.
Some gunmen in military uniform had shot and allegedly killed some protesters in Lekki toll gate. The Nigerian Army, however, denied the involvement of soldiers.

“It’s an indictment on President Muhammadu Buhari as the Commander-In-Chief of the Armed Forces.
“We call on the President to sack Abubarkar Malami.”
