As the Nigerian Police Force commemorates World Human Rights Day, there have been mixed reactions.
The United Nations set aside December 10th to commemorate its fortieth major achievement, the 1948 ‘Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR).
The Nigerian Police Force, known for violating human rights and killing citizens it is supposed to protect, joined the rest of the world in celebrating the day on its official Twitter page.
The NPF shared a quote written by Anti-apartheid activist and the first president of South Africa, Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela. The quote reads: “To deny people their human rights is to challenge their very humanity”.
