The UK Parliament has fixed a date to debate the sanctions against the Nigerian government over its dealing of the #EndSARS protests last month.
In the wake of the #EndSARS protest last month, a petition was launched to implement sanctions against the Nigerian Government and officials and the petition got over 220,000 signatures. Members of the UK Parliament following the success of the petition have scheduled November 23 to debate sanctions against the Nigerian government.
The debate is to consider a petition from hundreds of thousands of Nigerians who have asked the UK parliament to look into the extra judiciary killings and gross violations of human rights abuses by security operatives in Nigeria.
However, it is yet unclear if the UK parliament would consider the sanctions after debating the petitions considering Nigeria’s long- relation with the UK.
