Human rights are commonly known as basic, inalienable and fundamental rights that belong to every person in the world simply because we are human. These rights are inherent in us from birth even till death regardless of religion, ethnicity, race, nationality, gender, origin or status. It is a well-known fact that human rights are regularly protected in municipal and International laws. Nigeria as a country is not side-lined in upholding and preserving the human rights of her citizens. These rights are entrenched in Sections 33 to 44 of the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria (as amended). This paper won’t delve into the history of human Rights and exposition of these rights in totality. This presentation in a nutshell would be premised on whether the prohibition of open grazing in Nigeria by some states is a violation of human rights of the citizens as guaranteed under the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, as amended?
