Nigeria Condemns Human Right Abuse in Myanmar

 

 

 

The Federal Government (FG) of Nigeria expresses deep regret at the desperate human right situation in the Rakhine State of Myanmar, which is very reminiscent of what happened in Rwanda in 1994 and in Bosnia Herzegovina in 1995.

 

The Federal Government condemns the horrendous human suffering caused by what is now confirmed by the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights in his statement today, to be a “textbook example of ethnic cleansing” of the Rohingya people.

 

The Federal Government of Nigeria takes note of this statement, and calls upon the United Nations to invoke the principle of the “Responsibility to Protect” and intervene in Myanmar to stop the ongoing ethnic cleansing and create the conditions for the safe return and rehabilitation of the fleeing Rohingya people to their motherland.

The Government similarly calls on all members of the civilized world to condemn this heinous act and to demand for appropriate punishment to the perpetrators.
