The situation of insecurity in Nigeria has attracted the attention of the United Nations (UN)
which has decided to dispatch its Special Rapporteur on extrajudicial, summary or arbitrary
executions to Nigeria immediately.
Agnes Callamard is due in Abuja on Monday.
She will be here for two weeks to examine “the scope of the challenges
confronted with regard to arbitrary deprivations of life and measures taken by
the government on such issues as the implementation of counter-terrorism
policies and the conflicts between communities.
