    Lawyers Alert Sues Attorney General of the Federation Seeking Court’s Order to Compel him to ensure that employers of Labour Adopt and Register their HIV and AIDS Workplace Policy with the Ministry of Labour

    Lawyers Alert v. A.G. Federation & 2 Ors. Suit No. NICN/ABJ/CS/37/2019

    Facts of the Case

    In pursuit of her objective of promoting the rights of vulnerable groups, including people living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA) Lawyers Alert has realised the need to enforce compliance with the provisions of HIV/AIDS (Ant-discrimination) Act 2014 - an Act that was enacted “to make provision for the prevention of HIV and AIDS-Based discrimination and protect the fundamental human rights and dignity of people living with and affected by HIV/AIDS; and for related matters.”The Act stipulates that all employers of labour who have 5 employees and above must develop and register an HIV/AIDS workplace police with the Ministry of Labour. The Act also stipulates that the Attorney General of the Federation must ensure compliance. However, from Lawyers Alert’s investigations, no employer has registered its HIV/AIDS workplace policy with the Ministry of Labour, and the Attorney General of the Federation has not found it necessary to take steps to remedy the situation.

    Joy Joseph’s case with Solomon Isah

    Facts of the Case

    Sometime in 2017, Joy Joseph who was 17 years old then, was residing at Kokona Local Government Area (LGA) of Nasarawa state when one Solomon Isah, also a native of Kokona LGA offered to relocate her to Abuja where he would provide her with a good job and accommodation so she could save money and go back to school. On the strength of this promise, Joy accompanied Solomon to Abuja. Howevver, upon arriving Abuja, Solomon imprisoned the young lady in his private house and proceeded to turn her into a sex toy. All talks of getting her a job were cast aside while he subjected her to assault and battery in the presence of neighbours. Joy soon gave birth to Solomon’s son who, probably owing to lack of adequate care and nutrition, looked frail, malnourished and sickly as at the time she came to Lawyers Alert/COLaHR’s office for help. Lawyers Alert, in conjunction with COLaHR, tried to reach Solomonin hopes of getting to the bottom of the matter. Solomon spurned all attempts to be engaged preferring instead to start threatening to kill Joy if he was ever called upon again by any human rights group.
