“There has been a long history of relationship between Venezuela and Nigeria,” he said.

The Venezuelan Ombudsman, Alfrudo Angulo, whose position is similar to the NHRC executive secretary, said the Venezuelan human rights institution was created in 1999.

“Human right is for everyone and attention should be paid in the areas of torture and ill treatment of the people,” stated. “We are here therefore to sign this agreement to help us collaborate with each other to protect and promote human rights.” (NAN)
