Nigeria: Submission to the United Nations Human Rights Committee, 126th Session, 1-26 July 2019
In July the Human Rights Committee will review the human rights situation in Nigeria in the absence of a report 23 years after its first review. In this submission, Amnesty International sets out its concerns in relation to the national human rights frameworks, discrimination against LGBT individuals, extra-judicial killings in the context of the counter-insurgency efforts in the north-east, torture and other ill-treatment, freedom of expression and right to freedom of association, violation of children’s rights and several others, that Amnesty International has documented. This is by no means an exhaustive account of our organization’s human rights concerns.
