Since January 2016 at least 149 people have died in the military detention facility at Giwa barracks, Maiduguri. Their bodies were deposited at a mortuary in Maiduguri and then buried in the city’s cemetery. This represents a significant increase in the rate of deaths in the barracks compared with the second half of 2015. Urgent action is needed to stop this trend and end the death of detainees in Giwa barracks.
