he House of Representatives Committee on Human Rights on Thursday mandated the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) to furnish it with the list of Nigerians unlawfully detained by the police.

The Committee also urged the National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons (NAPTIP) to curb the rising incidences of human trafficking across the shores of Nigeria.

The Chairman of the Committee, Edward Pwajok (Plateau-APC), gave the charge when the two agencies appeared before members of the committee to defend their 2018 budget proposals.
