238 complaints received in two months: Kano NHRC
The National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) in Kano says it has received 238 complaints of human rights abuse between February and March.
NHRC’s coordinator in Kano, Shehu Abdullahi, disclosed on Thursday in Kano.
He said 198 of the 238 cases had been treated while 40 others were pending; 193 cases bordered on women and gender matters and 40 cases on child abuse.
Others include five complaints on unlawful arrest and detention and community issues.
The commission, he said, also mediated on marital matters between couples and families, adding that some of the cases had been referred to courts after thorough investigations.
According to him, unlawful arrest and detention complaints have been reduced to the barest minimum since the reform of the law.
He advised the people to be law-abiding to safeguard and respect the rights of one another without infringement.
