Practice Relating to Rule 132. Return of Displaced Persons
In 1994 and 1995, in statements before the UN Security Council on the situation in Abkhazia, Nigeria stated:
The issue of the return of the refugees and displaced persons is crucial to the settlement of the Georgian-Abkhaz conflict. The current situation, in which both the Government of Georgia and the Abkhaz authorities are unable to guarantee the safety of the displaced persons and protection of the repatriated … is unfortunate and should be reversed.
In 2008, in its combined third and fourth periodic reports to the Committee on the Rights of the Child, Nigeria stated:
The armed conflicts in Sierra Leone and Liberia caused an influx of refugees into Nigeria, the bulk of them are women and children. …
In 2006, with [the] assistance of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees in Nigeria a number of refugee children have been repatriated back to their home countries.
