The National Human Rights Commission witnessed yet another year of success in line with its Mandate and Strategic Plan. The 2022 year posed a number of challenges as Nigerians are still grappling with economic, social and political conditions that constrain the enjoinment of human rights by the citizenry. I therefore wish to appreciate and congratulate the Governing Council members, Management, Staff and all stakeholders who contributed in various ways towards the successes recorded in this Report.
In the year under review, incidences of Insurgency, banditry, kidnappings, farmers/herders clashes continued to increase with the attendant number of internally displaced persons; attacks by unknown gunmen continued to increase. Agitation for self-determination in the South East and South West could not be contained. General insecurity and sky-rocketing inflation was the order of the day as prices of staples were out of reach of most Nigerians.
