Ebonyi HRCRC records 207 cases in 2020, says Ag. Director
The Human Rights and Conflict Resolution Centre, a Non-Governmental Organisation, said it received 207 cases in Ebonyi in 2020.
The Acting Director of the organisation, Mr George Etamesor, said this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abakaliki on Monday.
Etamesor said the Department of Women and Children received 58 cases, while Access to Justice, Peace Building and Miscellaneous recorded 87, 19 and 43 cases, respectively.
He said the cases were categorised into family dispute and maintenance, children’s custody, domestic violence, debt maintenance, land and landlord-tenant disputes, amongst others.
He said that while 46 cases were resolved, 20 were pending and 27 kept in view.
“This is a summary of the cases registered in 2020, according to each department,” he said.
Etamesor listed the paucity of funds and accommodation for victims of abuse as some of the challenges facing the organisation.
According to him, the absence of shelter for victims of abuse in the state really makes the job difficult for the organisation.
He therefore appealed to private and public establishments for supports to enable them carry out their services effectively.
