It’s illegal to declare suspects wanted – Falana

“The decision of the defence headquarters to declare the murder suspects wanted is completely illegal

It’s illegal to declare suspects wanted – Falana

Let the federal government direct the defence headquarters to hand over the investigation of the suspects involved in the gruesome murder of the 17 officers and soldiers.

It ought to be pointed out that murder is not a military offence to warrant investigation by the defence headquarters.

If the federal government fails to call the defence headquarters to order, the case concerning the tragic murder of the soldiers will be completely bungled”.

The above statement was made by the human rights lawyer, Femi Falana, SAN, on Thursday in response to the eight persons declared wanted in connection with the killing of 17 soldiers in the Okuama community in Delta State by the army.

Recall that 17 military personnel comprising a lieutenant ​colonel, two majors, one captain, and 12 soldiers were killed while on a “peacekeeping mission” in the Okuama community on March 14.
