Nigeria: Loss of life, insecurity and impunity in the run-up to Nigeria's elections
On 2 April elections will begin in Nigeria. The Nigerian authorities and the Independent National Electoral Commission must prevent a repeat of the political violence that characterised the 2007 and 2003 elections. In the run-up to the elections, the country has seen an increase in violence. Several hundred people have been killed in politically-motivated, communal and sectarian violence in the past six months. Amnesty International appeals to security forces, political parties, armed groups and other entities engaged in acts of violence to refrain from committing further human rights abuses.
