The Nigerian military described the Amnesty International report that they had been aware of the impending Baga and Monguno attacks as misleading.
Reacting to the posed allegations, the Director for Defence Information, Chris Olukolade, said that the organisation used Nigeria's recent tragedies to tarnish the image of the local military.
"The misleading conclusions by Amnesty International could have been avoided if they had made meaningful efforts to verify the inciting allegations. Whatever be the intention, the allegations, at best can only constitute a distractive and misleading commentary or interpretation of the terrorists’ activities, the efforts to curb them and the actual situation on the ground in Nigeria."
