Nigeria: Security forces: Serving to protect and respect human rights?

, Index number: AFR 44/023/2002

Amnesty International calls on the Nigerian government to put the respect and protection of human rights first in the reform of the security forces. The protection and promotion of human rights must be given the highest possible priority in all aspects of decisions relating to policing and security issues as they are central to providing justice and security through the work of security forces. The Nigerian government must make sure that all responsible for human rights violations within the ranks of the security forces are brought to justice, and guarantee redress and reparation for the victims of such violations.
