The leadership of the Civil Rights Anti-Corruption World Initiative, CRAWI, has called on persons whose rights are been abused or violated to always endeavour to speak out.
The group who made the appeal on Tuesday in Jalingo, the capital of Taraba state, during an interactive session with media men, warned such persons not to hesitate in making public complaints whenever their fundamental rights are trampled on.
Reeling out the plans that have been so far put in place to ensure that individuals rights are well protected as enshrined in the 1999 constitution (as amended), the organisation, according to its leadership, would tread extra legitimate miles in order to ensure equality of rights in Taraba, Northeast and Nigeria at large.
Led by its Northeast coordinator, Bashir Bakari, the organisation who is presently going about creating awareness, alleged that the rights of some communities as well as individuals have been swept under the carpet.
Stressing that such persons or communities have been dying in silence, following their inability to identify where to lay their complaints, such communities, as suggested by them, should not hesitate to reach out to the members of the CRAWI, who according to him, are spread all over the Northeast region and Nigeria.
The group, who said they have resolved not to leave any stone unturned in order to ensure that no human rights are violated, expressed commitment to collaborate with the relevant security agencies.
Stressing how determined is the organisation towards protecting the rights of the people and the communities that have been under the dungeon of slavery, the need for all Nigerians to lean their weight behind the organisation in order to liberate those whose rights are being abused daily, he believed can no longer be overemphasised.
Apart from fighting for those whose rights are being trampled on, the organisation was also observed to have been collaborating with various anti-corruption organisations in order to stamp out corrupt practices from the nooks and crannies of the country.
