SERAP calls on Buhari and his vice to investigate mob attack on Amnesty International

The Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project calling President MUHAMMADU BUHARI to urgently instruct appropriate authorities to thoroughly investigate what it called sponsored and coordinated attacks against Amnesty International Office in Nigeria, and ensure security of its staff.

It would be recalled that a group of protesters yesterday barricaded the Abuja office of Amnesty International and asked the group to quit Nigeria within 24 hours.

But in a statement today signed by SERAP deputy director TIMOTHY ADEWALE, the organization called on BUHARI and his vice YEMI OSINBAJO to act swiftly to end the increasing sponsored attacks, intimidation, harassment and threats against Amnesty International Office in Nigeria and its staff.

He said any failure to hold to account those who may be responsible will invariably increase the vulnerability of civil society in the country, and strengthen the perception that attacks against NGOs and human rights workers can happen with impunity.
