Agencies That Protect Human Rights In Nigeria

As a human being and as a citizen of Nigeria, it’s important that you know your human rights. However, as it’s a legal issue, it can be difficult to know all your human rights. This is why we have Human Rights Protection Agencies. As the name says, these are agencies that help protect your human rights. Their main aim is to prevent human rights abuse. If you have any issues relating to your rights, you can contact them and get help. There are so many agencies that protect human rights in Nigeria and they include:
