Committee for the Defense of Human Rights v. Nigeria, African Commission on Human and Peoples' Rights, Comm. No. 62/91 (1995).


62/91 Committee for the Defense of Human Rights vs. Nigeria, in respect of Ms. Jennifer Madike


1.         The case concerned an individual detained on charges of drug ­dealing. The complainant committee alleged that the detention was politically motivated. The Commission received information that the detainee was freed and subsequently inquired of the complai­nant if it wished to pursue the case.


2.         These inquiries went unanswered despite two reminders. The Commission therefore decided that the file be closed because of loss of contact with the complainant.
