Violence in Nigeria causes MEPs ‘deep concern’

The European Parliament expresses deep concern about the security situation in Nigeria. MEPs call on President Muhammadu Buhari and his government to:

  • address the increasing inter-ethnic violence between pastoral communities and farmers by negotiating a national policy framework protecting the interests of both groups,
  • step up the efforts to stop the attacks against Christian and Muslims,
  • provide psychosocial support to the victims of Boko Haram radicalisation,
  • reform the Nigerian state security forces and investigate abuses perpetrated by security officials, such as extrajudicial killings, torture and arbitrary arrests, and
  • implement a moratorium on the death penalty, with a view to its abolition.

To reinforce their message MEPs ask the EU Commission and the European External Action Service to monitor the reintegration of Nigerian returnees from Libya, ensuring that the EU funding is spent effectively and keeping the European Parliament informed about the reintegration measures.
