Abstract:

In this submission concerning violence in Jos, Pleateau States, Nigeria, the Human Rights Watch presents its findings from on-the-ground research conducted in Jos during December 2008 and February 2009. On November 28-29, 2008, deadly clashes between Muslims and Christian mobs and excessive use of force by security forces left hundreds dead. Muslim and Christian authorities have collectively documented the deaths of more than 700 people in the two days of violence. The Nigerian police and military were implicated in more than 130 arbitrary killings, mostly of young Muslim men from the Hausa-Fulani ethnic group. The Human Rights Watch documented 133 killings, but believes the actual number of arbitrary killings by security forces may be sustantially higher.
