The National Human Rights Commission has received 814 human rights complaints, including over 500 sexual and gender-based violence this year in Bauchi State. 

The commission’s coordinator in the state, Yatcit Susan Dala, disclosed this Monday during a public lecture organised by Youths and Civil Society Coalition for Development in collaboration with National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA) held at the Federal Polytechnic, Bauchi. 

“So far this year as of November 24, we received a total of 814 human rights abuses, out of which more than 500 cases have to do with sexual and gender-based violence,” he said. 

Meanwhile, the wife of Sokoto State Governor, Dr. Mariya Tambuwal has offered N4 million grants to 200 survivors of gender-based violence and people living with special needs. 

Mrs Tambuwal said the gesture was to cushion their suffering. 

UNICEF’s Ranganai Matema lamented the increasing rate of violence against women and children and called for a concerted effort to combat the menace.
