DSS attacks on journalists: UN told to sanction Buhari govt

Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria, HURIWA, has asked the United Nations Human Rights Council to punish Nigeria for the egregious violations of the human rights of media workers in the country.

The rights group said the classification of the Nigeria’s National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) by the UNURC should be downgraded as a global sanction for President Muhammadu Buhari’s penchant for physically brutalizing media workers and administratively frustrating enjoyment of press freedoms and freedom of expression in Nigeria.

HURIWA regretted that even when it is evidently clear that president Buhari has crippled the operational independence of NHRC, the UNHRC behaves as if Nigerians are less valuable in terms of the universality of the fundamental human rights captured by the universal declarations of human rights.
