Unresolved disputes lead to armed conflicts in Nigeria

ABUJA, Nigeria (The Informant247) – Disputes in Nigeria snowballed into armed conflicts and human rights violations due to the absence of peaceful, justice, and equitable resolution in the early stages, the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) said.

“Disputes and injustices across the country is gradually snowballing into armed conflicts and human rights violations because there was absence of peaceful and genuine efforts at just and equitable resolution at the early stages,” the Commission’s secretary, Chief Tony Ojukwu, SAN, said.

“Such conflicts and consequent insecurity, generate unfavorable development climate as well as drain resources for any meaningful development in the country,” he said.

Ojukwu advised stakeholders and Non-Nigerians to observe early warning signals and to always adopt a peaceful approach to issues rather than engaging in conflict with disagreeing parties.
