We recorded 154 rights abuse cases in Adamawa in 2021: NHRC

The National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) says it recorded no fewer than 154 human rights abuse and violation cases in Adamawa in 2021.

The Acting State Coordinator of the commission, Grace Mamza, made this known in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Wednesday.

Mamza, however, said that the commission had resolved 75 percent of the cases, while 25 percent were pending.

She added that some of the cases were child abuse, rape, domestic violence and unnatural cases.

According to her, some of the pending cases have been referred to other institutions and organisations that have mandate to resolve them.

She said such organisations included the Police, Ministry of Justice, Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, and the Nigerian Army.

The coordinator advised Nigerians to respect the rights of one another.

“Sometimes, you as a citizen when your right is violated you can take bold step of reporting the case to the appropriate authority,’’ she said.

Mamza assured that the commission was ready to protect, promote and enforce fundamental human rights when such rights were abused or violated. (NAN)
