Jonathan Drags Obasanjo To Rights Commission Over Criminal Allegations

President Jonathan Goodluck yesterday submitted himself to
the National Human Rights Commission, NHRC, for probe over criminal allegations
against him by former President Olusegun Obasanjo. Former President Obasanjo
had written an 18-page open letter to Jonathan, accusing him of incompetence,
engaging in anti-party activities, ethnicism and training about 1,000 snipers
ahead of the 2015 polls.
Jonathan, who denied the allegations in his response, is
specifically inviting the rights commission to unravel the truth in the
allegation that his government had begun training over 1,000 snipers to
terminate his political opponents.

In a letter to the commission, President Jonathan is seeking
for a thorough investigation of the allegations against him, touching on
alleged human rights abuses.
The letter, signed by the Attorney-General of the
Federation, Mr. Mohammed Adoke, SAN, on the directive of Jonathan, had already
been submitted to NHRC.
The letter dated December 23, 2013 was submitted yesterday.
Sources close to the Presidency said 
that similar letters had been written to the Independent Corrupt
Practices and Other Related Offences Commission, ICPC, and the Economic and
Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.
The two anti-graft agencies are to probe allegations of
economic crimes and official corruption against the Jonathan’s administration
as contained in Obasanjo’s letter.
