CSOs Describe Forced Movement Of Almajiris Illegal


A coalition of civil society organizations and activists working under Human Rights Agenda Network (HRAN) has condemned the on-going forced movement of Almajiris by some states in Northern Nigeria by deporting them to their states of origin.

The condemnation was contained in a statement signed by 13 civil society organizations on Thursday and sent to Solacebase, revealed that, the deportation of the Almajiris is illegal and unconstitutional because every Nigerian, irrespective of his or her status, is entitled to the full enjoyment of the fundamental human rights in the constitution as stipulated in Section 41 of the 1999 Constitution which guarantees the right of every Nigerian to reside anywhere in the country.

The statement added that it is unconscionable that the governments of the concerned states who are supposed to take care of the education and welfare of the Almajiris are maltreating them, stressing that, the Almajiri phenomenon is purely a result of the failure of governance.

It added that HRAN warns that the continued dehumanizing of these children will have far-reaching security implications for those states in particular and the entire country in general.

The statement also revealed that the forced movement of the Almajiris from one state to another is a major public health risk in the context of Covid19 pandemic.

Solacebase reports that the CSOs include, Human Rights Agenda Network, Access to Justice, Carmelite Prisoner’s Interest Organization (CAPIO), Legal Defence and Assistance Project, Prison Inmate Development Initiative (PIDI), Child Rights Protection Initiative (CRPI), Foundation for Environmental Rights, Advocacy & Development (FENRAD) and  Justice for Peace and Development Initiative
