A call has gone to President Goodluck Jonathan to order the arrest and prosecution of the Interior Minister Abba Moro and the Comptroller General of Immigration, David Parradang, over the death, yesterday, of over 20 job seekers during a recruitment exercise for the Nigerian Immigration Service (NIS).

The call was made this afternoon in a statement by the Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria (HURIWA) signed by the National Coordinator, Comrade Emmanuel Onwubiko, and the National Media Affairs Director, Miss Zainab Yusuf.

Said HURIWA: “We condemn in totality, the poor coordination of the job interviews by the Federal Ministry of Interior and the Nigerian Immigration Services which led to the unfortunate deaths of scores of Nigerian youthful job seekers. We hereby demand the arrest and prosecution for dereliction of duty resulting in mass murders of the minister of Interior and the Comptroller General of Immigration. Government must take immediate and comprehensive measures to ensure that there is no repeat of such a disastrous recruitment exercise in Nigeria and we also ask that the Government refunds all the payments made by all the candidates. The Federal Government must also pay heavy compensation of not less than N10 million to the families of each of the dead because their deaths were occasioned by the total official dereliction of function committed by officials of the Nigerian State.”
