The Equal Rights Trust has been working with the Legal Defence and Assistance Project (LEDAP) in Nigeria since 2010 to provide legal assistance and other support to survivors of discriminatory torture and inhuman treatment
In the last five years, we have supported more than 50 survivors of torture and inhuman treatment to bring prosecutions against those responsible for their treatment. We have had a number of notable court victories. In many cases, we have supported these individuals to access medical and psychological support to deal with the consequences of their treatment.
