Nigerian women judges have decried the persistent practice of female genital mutilation among ethnic communities in Nigeria.

They expressed their concerns in a statement issued by the International Director, National Association of Women Judges of Nigeria, Justice Roli Harriman, on Thursday, in Maiduguri, to commemorate the International Day of Women Judges scheduled for Friday, March 10.

They noted that the practice has constituted a matter of serious concern in the country.

The women judges would not mention the communities known for such practices, nor quote figures on those practices they regarded as obnoxious in Nigeria.
