Nigeria: ‘Welcome to hell fire’: Torture and other ill-treatment in Nigeria
Torture is a routine occurrence in Nigeria, largely to extract “confessions” or as punishment for alleged crimes.

Security forces are able to act in a climate of impunity. This report reveals the experiences of former detainees who have been tortured in police and military custody and the government’s failure to prevent such violations or to bring suspected perpetrators to justice.
