In 2002, HRF’s Founder, Victor Fakunle visited Keffi Minimum Prison, Nassarawa State, Nigeria on a missions trip. There, he encountered an overcrowded prison with about 40 inmates in cells built for 8 persons. Most of the inmates had been awaiting trial for a long time, in some cases, more than five years. The inmates had no legal representation. Hence, Human Rights Foundation (HRF) has been advocating for the rule of law and providing legal representation for its indigent clients since.
What We Do
We provide access to justice for indigent persons who have been unjustly arrested or detained; or who cannot afford legal representation
The Angler Project is an initiative of Human Rights Foundation that focuses on women's empowerment and capacity development.
We advocate and promote rights of consumers in Nigeria. We need to see more cases where consumers' rights are protected in Nigeria.
I have been in Eko prison for 3 years but today by the grace of God and through the help of HRF Lawyers, I have been freed. I really appreciate HRF for what they do and what God continues to use them to do
I have been in jail without going to court for 4 years. I really thank God, I do not regret going to prison because I have learnt alot. HRF Lawyers are wonderful people, they took my case up in court and everything went well.
I never believed that HRF could help me regain my freedom after 3 years at Ikoyi prison without trial, but lo and behold, after 3 weeks of going to court, through the help of HRF, I thank GOD, I am free!
