Kaduna, 04 April, 2022 / 4:59 pm (ACI Africa).
UK-based human rights foundation, Christian Solidarity Worldwide (CSW), is appealing to the international community to pressure the Nigerian government to be accountable for its failure to protect citizens of Kaduna State who are experiencing heightened insecurity.
CSW Founder President says the Nigerian State "is under a comprehensive siege by a significant number of armed non-state actors who appear to be coordinating their activities, heightening the vulnerability of civilians."
“The international community in particular must increase efforts to hold the Nigerian government to account for its failure to protect citizens,” Mervyn Thomas says in an April 1 report.
Mr. Mervyn adds that the international community also needs to offer Nigeria “every possible assistance to combat the terrorist threats.”
Kaduna State has experienced heightened insecurity in recent days.
