At least 750 persons have been killed by bandits, terrorists and other non-state actors, while no less than 45 persons were abducted from various educational institutions in the country in 2023.

According to a report by Policy and Legal Advocacy Centre (PLAC) the year which opened with reports of attacks on unarmed civilians by insurgents and other non-state actors on one hand, and the security forces on another is also ending the same way.

The 2023 human rights report was issued on Friday in Abuja by PLAC’s Executive Director, Clement Nwankwo at an event to commemorate the 75th Anniversary of Human Rights Day themed “Freedom, Equality and Justice for All.”

Nwankwo said it was against the backdrop of ravaging insecurity, arbitrariness exhibited by state institutions and deepening levels of poverty that the status of human rights protection in the year 2023 was examined.

He regretted that life in general had remained insecure in most parts of the country, even as soldiers were deployed in virtually all of Nigeria’s 36 States.
