Senate summons Buratai over Army’s ‘Operation Positive Identification’
Lawmakers of the ninth Senate have summoned the Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant General Tukur Buratai, over the controversial Operation Positive Identification which has been planned to take place across the country.
“Although the Chief of Army Staff had described the alert as fake but as representatives of the people, we have summoned him to come and clarify it to Nigerians,” Ndume said.
He also said that the ninth Assembly will not support any action by the security agency that would trample on the rights of the Nigerian people. Citing similar exercises in the northeast and the southeast, Ndume said he supports the idea of having every Nigerian having identification cards but anything that would cause any form of inconveniences for the people is not acceptable.
Eluemlu said it is a well-known fact that many Nigerians do not have access to their identification cards and such exercise would hamper citizens’ right to freedom of movement.
