FG Investigation Of Alleged Harassment Of Women Commence In Abuja This Month, Gives Dates To Other Geo-Political Zones
It has been brought to our attention that an old video of Hajia Safiya Umar, the Acting Secretary to the FCT Social Development Secretariat is making the rounds again in Social Media.
For the sake of public information, please be assured that regarding the matter of the alleged harrassment of women in Abuja and the old video, the Federal Government has since taken concerted actions.
This is particularly regarding the raids of women in night clubs and the streets of Abuja that were purportedly carried out by AEPB and the FCT Joint task force.
Under the direction of the Presidency, the National Human Rights Commission(NHRC) has constituted a special panel of investigation to look into these issue not just in Abuja but in other parts of the country.
The panel will be sitting in the 6 geo-political zones as scheduled below:
*Abuja* – 14-16 Nov 2019
*Lagos* – 20-22Nov 2019
*Kaduna* – 2-4 dec 2019
*Owerri* – 13-14 Jan 2020
*P/H* – 16-17 Jan 2020
*Gombe* – 27- 29 Jan 2020
Interested members of the public are advised to submit memoranda to NHRC.
Please ignore the recirculation of the old video as government is doing the needful and will keep the public abreast through the work of the NHRC.
