Nigeria. Vigilante violence in the south and south-east.
12 Sep 2003
Amnesty International
Three years after the election of a civilian government in May 1999, Nigerian citizens see themselves confronted with one of the most serious spirals of violence in decades, in the shape of increasing crime rate and inter-communal clashes.
Crime is probably perceived by the majority of the Nigerian population as the main problem in recent times. So much so that to a large degree human rights violations and abuses are “justified” in the context of a campaign of law enforcement against crime.
Nigeria lacks police officers. Police patrols often find themselves fighting against heavily armed gangs of robbers, who have killed dozens of police officers over the past three years. Working conditions in the police force are poor and allegations of human rights violations, corruption and misconduct within its ranks are numerous.
