NHRC/HRAN/EU Workshop Project on Promoting Human Rights Accountability in North East Nigeria.

NHRC/HRAN/EU Workshop Project on "Promoting Human Rights Accountability in North East" Nigeria.

Training conducted in the three project states of Adamawa. Borno, and Yobe. The training comprised of members of Civilian Joint Taskforce in the three states; officers from the Nigerian Army, Navy, Airforce, and other security agencies involved in the counter-insurgency war in North East Nigeria. The training centered on mainstreaming human rights into the operations of "Operation Lafiya Dole".

The workshops held in the 3 project states as follows:

  • Adamawa: May 15-19 2017
  • Borno: May 22-26 2017
  • Yobe: May 30-3 June 2017

The participants were trained on the following topics:

  • Overview of Human Rights
  • International Humanitarian laws
  • Mainstreaming Human Rights into Operation Lafiya Dole
  • Rules of Engagement
  • Code of Conduct
  • Experience sharing during counter-insurgency operations.

In the end, the objective of the training was achieved as the participants showed more enthusiasm to streamline human rights principles into their operations. They also developed strategies for a step-down training to accommodate their absent colleagues.

HRAN is a network of civil society organizations and activists working on human rights issues in Nigeria. It arose from an informal collaboration of human rights NGOs to prepare an alternative report to Nigeria's Universal Periodic Review (UPR) in March 2009. Read more!
