The UK Parliament has scheduled a date to debate on sanctions against the Nigerian Government.

The UK Parliament would be debating sanctioning the Nigerian Government over their reaction to the EndSARS peaceful protest that swept through the nation.

In the wake of the EndSARS protest in Nigeria, a petition was launched to implement sanctions against the Nigerian Government and officials. The petition got over 220,000 signatures. 

In the wake of the EndSARS protest, a petition was launched and sent to the UK parliament to implement sanctions against the Nigerian Government and officials. The petition got over 220,000 signatures. 

Following the success of the petition, members of the UK Parliament have scheduled November 23 to debate sanctions against the Nigerian government.

The UK Parliament will be considering a petition from hundreds of thousands of Nigerians that asked them to look into the killings and gross violations of human rights abuses by security forces and other officials. 

It is, however, unclear if the British lawmakers would recommend sanctions after debating the petitions from Nigerians regarding the EndSARS protest considering Nigeria’s long-standing ties with the UK.

Meanwhile, CNN has released a detailed documentary of what happened on 20th October at Lekki toll gate where many Nigerian youths massacred by Nigerian Soldiers.

The CNN footage confirmed that the Nigerian army shot directly at EndSARS peaceful protesters with live bullets.
