Executive Secretary of the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) Chief Tony Ojukwu SAN, OFR has described the gruesome killing of a member of staff of a humanitarian non-governmental organisation, Alem Muluseta which took place in Damboa Borno State, as disheartening and shocking.

He said Aid workers ought to be highly respected and protected by all for their laudable efforts and commitment to caring for the Populations of Concern (PoCs) in their areas of coverage.

He said any form of attack on them or the people they are caring for, should be condemned in all ramifications and thoroughly investigated.

He called on the Military and other Security personnel involved in the counter insurgency operations in the North-east to always adhere to the rules of engagement and mainstream human rights in their operations in the region.
