The Federal Government of Nigeria on Tuesday expressed “deep regret at the desperate human right situation in the Rakhine State of Myanmar, which is very reminiscent of what happened in Rwanda in 1994 and in Bosnia Herzegovina in 1995.”

“The Federal Government condemns the horrendous human suffering caused by what is now confirmed by the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights in his statement today, to be a “textbook example of ethnic cleansing” of the Rohingya people,” Ms. Jane Adams, Spokesperson of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, said in a statement issued in Abuja.

According to her, “The Federal Government of Nigeria takes note of this statement, and calls upon the United Nations to invoke the principle of the “Responsibility to Protect” and intervene in Myanmar to stop the ongoing ethnic cleansing and create the conditions for the safe return and rehabilitation of the fleeing Rohingya people to their motherland.

“The Government similarly calls on all members of the civilised world to condemn this heinous act and to demand for appropriate punishment to the perpetrators.”
