The UK Government maintains a network of regional offices in Nigeria, including in Kaduna State. This network facilitates information gathering and engagement with state governments for our High Commission in Abuja. The network monitors human rights issues, including freedom of religion and belief. We will continue to make clear to the Nigerian authorities at the highest levels the importance of protecting human rights for all.
