Posted: 2018-04-23


The National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) has called on the federal government of Nigeria to come up with appropriate political and legal approaches for the resolution of the lingering case of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN) and its leader, Sheik Ibrahim El-Zak-zaky.

The Acting Executive Secretary of the NHRC, Mrs. Oti Ovrawah stated this on Monday when members of IMN staged a protest in front of the headquarters of the Commission in Abuja.

Ovrawah said that it is imperative for the Nigerian Police Force to exercise restraint in the handling of protests to prevent violation of rights and dignity of the citizens.

She also urged the members of IMN to be peaceful and desist from using children and vulnerable persons while on protest.

She therefore called on all citizens to cultivate peaceful relations and assist government in maintaining law and order.
