Amnesty International has verified videos sent out on June 2nd this year by ENDS.ng, Every Nigerian Do Something, to Nigerian media which displayed members of the Nigerian Army and the Civilian-JTF mass-killing Boko Haram terrorists.
ENDS had verified the authenticity of the video and the actors before ensuring the public got an idea of the real happenings in the war against Boko Haram. ENDS provided that they knew the names of the men implicated in the video. ENDS also proved that the English language spoken, the referral to a next slaughter candidate as 'that thief,' which would not be said by Boko Haram and other factors helped solidify ENDS' confidence before releasing the video. ENDS also understand the Nigerian Army and CJTF due to leadership sabotage, frequent prisoner release and other complications of the battle, have employed a "take no prisoner" approach.

ENDS previously published this report:
We received shocking video of soldiers in Nigeria's northeast, along with Civilian-JTF slaughtering arrested Boko Haram suspects in a summarily execution. We believe these terrorists were caught in the act of terror. The tall individual who comes to slaughter a terrorist goes by the name, 'Dogo,' and is a Civilian-JTF member our sources are very familiar with.
We refuse to make a judgment on this video because it is not our calling. We however do understand the perplexities of the asymmetrical war and the complications of the Nigerian security department in terms of transporting, accommodating and processing justice for terrorists; who almost always end up escaping.
We do hope and believe that the Nigerian soldiers have been instructed on and authorized to carry out expedient on field trials as this is certainly necessary in this perplexing war with Boko Haram barbarians.

The video which takes a lot of stomach to watch, prompts some serious questions: What has happened? What is happening? What should be happening (to us people) and what will happen tomorrow, after and if it still happens to be with Boko Haram? Things will never be the same again, most especially in Nigeria's affected north.
May the Almighty have mercy on us and guide and deliver us.?
