Nigeria - OPCAT Situation
On 27 July 2009 Nigeria ratified the OPCAT and, in September of the same year, established a new specialised institution as its NPM: the National Committee on Torture, which functions go beyond the OPCAT mandate. The Committee started to be operational in 2011.
The SPT conducted an OPCAT advisory visit to Nigeria in April 2014. The visit report has not been made public yet.
The SPT member Victor Madrigal-Borloz is the SPT Focal Point for Nigeria.
