The National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) in Adamawa said it recorded 93 human right violations between January and April 18.
The acting Coordinator of the commission in the state, Grace Mamza made the disclosure in an interview on Tuesday in Yola.
She said that “only 30 of the 93 cases are pending, while the remaining 63 cases have been handled and resolved.”
Mamza said some of the major violations during the period under review include parental neglect, domestic violence, unlawful arrest and detention, entitlement and inheritance.
She urged the public to “report cases of violations to the commission and other authorities for mediation, and to also take action against violators if necessary.”
“I am appealing to parents to take responsibilities, watch and protect their children against any means of violation because we have a lot of vices being reported today due to parents neglect,” she said.
While lamenting on the rate of divorce in the society, she added that cases of child custody problems were on the rise “as some women insist on staying with their children for proper care and upbringing, but are being denied by their ex-husbands.”
