The Amnesty International Nigeria has commended the release of hundreds of the husbands of the ‘Knifar Women’, a movement of over 2,000 displaced Nigerian women campaigning for the release of their husbands from unlawful military detention.

Director of Amnesty International Nigeria, Osai Ojigho, said this on Thursday in a statement.

“We welcome the release of the 600 men, including husbands of Knifar Women, from unlawful detention at Giwa Barracks and Maiduguri Maximum Prison. 

“However, at least 600 more who have never stood trial are still illegally detained, a situation which puts their lives in danger and their families through endless anguish. Prolonged unlawful detention in notoriously grim military facilities is a gross human rights violation. 

“Some of those released told Amnesty International that they were unlawfully detained for more than six years and during that time were never told why they were detained, or what they were accused of. Many were denied access to a lawyer or contact and visits from family. 

“Of the thousands that have disappeared since the start of Boko Haram conflict, far too many were victims of the military’s unlawful detention program. Nigerian authorities must immediately release those still in military detention, as well as investigate and prosecute those responsible for crimes perpetrated by the military,” she said.
