The Nigerian Navy has assured Nigerians their rights will be adequately respected in the discharge of the Service duty.
Navy Capt. Muhammed Dahiru, Commanding Officer, Naval Outpost, Onitsha in Anambra State made the promise when an eight-member delegation from the Human Rights, Justice and Peace Foundation visited him.
Dahiru said that human rights’ violations by the military had reduced drastically over the years, stressing that more efforts were being made by the military authorities to improve on the situation.
The commander said that the Naval Base was established in 2010 because of the inadequacies in the Nigerian Navy’s efforts to strategically cover the River Niger following contemporary security challenges.
According to him, the Outpost had been integrated into the security operation of the state government tagged: “Operation Kpochapu” (Operation Clear).
