You have no right to beat up unarmed and defenseless citizens – Fighters League

1 Mins read

The Economic Fighters League has condemned what it described as “brutish and primitive behaviour” of the joint police and military team enforcing the lockdown directive.

The league in a statement was of the view that the armed security personnel should have dealt with the persons in a civil and dignified manner without breaching their fundamental human rights.

The statement comes in the wake of some viral videos capturing some military officers punishing citizens who were said to have violated the restrictions announced by the president.

“In modern policing and military engagements where civility dictates that armed officers deal with citizens in a manner that shows human dignity no matter what, it is shameful to find our armed officers exhibiting such brutish and primitive behavior,” the statement said.

“The police and military have no right to beat up unarmed and defenseless citizens, not even when the citizens in question have offended. It is the application of the law that is required, not the abuse of citizens as we are seeing. This shameful practice must stop immediately,” it added.
