“WHAT IS THE PUNISHMENT FOR ANY PERSON INCLUDING POLICE OFFICERS THAT TORTURES ANOTHER PERSON”.

In Nigeria, “Torture” includes parading of person in public, food deprivation, feeding with spoilt food or excreta, rubbing of pepper, rape, sexual abuse, use of drugs, blindfolding, threat/maltreatment of family and friends, prolonged interrogation to deny sleep, threat of death, denial of sleep, removal of clothes(nakedness), shaving of hair or secret detentions.
Any person that performs or witnesses or allows for any of the above to be performed on any person in Nigeria, upon conviction is punishable with imprisonment for a maximum term of 25 years.
Where torture caused death of tortured person, it is considered as murder and its punishable with death sentence.

My authorities are sections 2, 3, 8 and 13 of the Anti-Torture Act, 2017 and sections 316 and 319 of the Criminal Code as well as sections 220 and 221 of the Penal Code.

“Time To Oppose Cases Of Breach Of Human Rights In Nigeria”

Human Rights are golden and when breached the courts are often quick in entertaining such cases and giving justice. When a case is filed against you seeking for enforcement of fundamental human rights, you have 5 days from such day, to respond and oppose the case.

My authority is Order II Rule 6 of the Fundamental Rights (Enforcement Procedures) Rules, 2009.

“Legal Remedies Can Be Sought Not Only For Breach But Fear Of Breach Of Fundamental Human Rights.”

Aside where there is a breach of fundamental human right, one can approach a court and seek legal remedies where there is a likelihood that his/her fundamental human right is about to be breached. So, one does not need to wait for his fundamental human right to be breached before he goes to court to seek remedies.

My authority is Order II Rule 1 of the Fundamental Rights (Enforcement Procedures) Rules, 2009.

“Equal Salaries for Male and Female Employees”

Female employees are to be paid well and as much as male employees. Employees of equal rank should receive same and equal salaries and welfare packages. It is a breach of fundamental human right to under pay an employee just because of sex of the employee.

See section 42 of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

Every citizen of Nigeria, irrespective of sex, tribe, religion and class has a Fundamental Human Right to acquire, purchase, own, live, trade and deal on Land or landed property in any part of Nigeria. Hence, government allocation of land must be to all citizens of Nigeria and not to residents/indigenes of a particular state or persons of a particular tribe or religion.
