Nigeria: Stop the Forced Eviction of Residents in Kofan Doka, Kofan Kibo and Anguwan Alkali and Other Communities (UA 189/15)
A court case seeking to stop the forced eviction of thousands in Zaria City, Kaduna state in Nigeria will be heard on 15 September. The affected residents had been given a 21-day notice after which the state was to carry out demolitions and they would be liable for reimbursing the cost. 92 houses have already been demolished, 267 more are still at risk.
Amnesty International is concerned about the fairness of proceedings leading to the trial and conviction of Leonard Peltier, an Ashinabe-Lakota Native American who was convicted of murdering two FBI agents.
