“Amnesty International urges the Nigerian authorities to act swiftly to find those responsible for these horrific acts or persons suspected of responsibility for the gruesome killings and bring them to justice promptly.
“The killing of the two policemen and the frequent attacks targeting security agencies in the southeast is appalling.
