Training of journalists
On September 23 and 24, 2021, a training session for journalists was held in Edo. Bringing together 15 journalists from different media outlets (print and electronic), the session aimed to build the capacity of news agencies to monitor and document cases of torture and other human rights violations committed by state security agencies. Participants were trained in all stages of journalistic work: observing and monitoring the human rights situation, obtaining clear and reliable information from victims of human rights violations by state security agencies.
Reported cases of torture will be taken to court by the project's legal assistance team.
