Chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee of Ghana’s Parliament, Frank Annoh-Dompreh has urged the African Union (AU) and the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) to show leadership by using mediation to help address the human rights violation in Nigeria.

According to him mediation is the way to go, as already the sub-region is contending with a security situation in Cote d’lvoire as well as election related issues in Guinea.

Mr. Dompreh further noted that political unrest in Nigeria, the largest West African country by population and economy, has the potential of affecting the entire sub-region.

He twitted that, “I am saddened and alarmed by the ongoing situation in Nigeria and condemn the killing of unarmed peaceful protesters by the police especially as these were the very ills being protested”.
