Terrorism and Human Rights Protection: Nigerian Perspective

B.E . Ewulum Esq


Worldwide, terrorism of all nature is increasingly taking an upper hand. The major aim of every elected leadership is to secure the lives and properties of citizens of the country. Terrorism therefore makes this mission impossible to achieve. For the nation then to achieve its aim there needs to be an all-out war against terrorism. However, should this all-out war against terrorism impede the enjoyment of the fundamental rights of the citizens of such nations? This therefore is what we are looking at in this work. This work seeks to delineate the nature of human rights and then discussed some specific human rights that face challenges in the fight against terrorism. At the end, the work suggests that though terrorism is a crime that should be eradicated, caution should be taken to ensure that human rights abuses are not recorded for when this is the issue discontent may arise giving rise to uprising or even a violation of the Constitution.
