#endsars: UK Parliament Debates Sanctions Against Nigerian Govt Officials Nov 23 by Islie: 11:54am On Nov 19
The UK Parliament will hold a debate on individual sanctions against Nigerian government officials on November 23, Daily Sun has learnt.

In an email sent to one of the individuals (name withheld) who signed a petition asking the UK government to sanction those responsible for the killing of unarmed EndSARS protesters, the petitions team of the UK government and parliament said November 23 has been set aside for its parliament to debate the issue.

The email read: “Parliament is going to debate the petition you signed -’Implement sanctions against the Nigerian government and officials’. The debate is scheduled for 23 November, 2020. Once the debate has happened, we’ll email you a video and transcript.”

However, when contacted, a senior official of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, said the ministry was yet to be notified about the development.

“We cannot comment on a matter yet to be brought to the attention of the government.”

Senior Advocate, Mr Femi Falana, has said there should be no hypocrisy in the United Kingdom Parliament’s decision to debate individual sanctions on government officials involved in the shooting of #EndSARS protesters in Lekki, Lagos State.

Also reacting, former Director-General of the Nigerian Institute of International Affairs (NIIA), Professor Bola Akinterinwa, said the decision of the United Kingdom Parliament to debate on individual sanctions on government officials responsible for the killing of unarmed protesters in Lekki is a very welcome development.

He said at the level of the Federal Government, an impression is given that the military had not done anything wrong despite the many contradictions by the military as far as the Lekki incidence is concerned.

The debate on whether or not sanctions should be imposed on Nigerian government officials will depend on the conditions stipulated in the UK Global Human Rights Sanctions Regulations 2020, also known as the ‘Magnitsky’-style sanctions regime.

According to the UK government website, the sanctions regime targets those who have been involved in some of the gravest human rights violations and abuses around the world.

The regulations put in place sanctions measures to deter and provide accountability for activities, which if carried out by or on behalf of a state within the territory of that state would amount to a serious violation by that state of an individual’s right to life, right not to be subjected to torture or cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment, right to be free from slavery, not to be held in servitude or required to perform forced or compulsory labour.

The UK government said so far, 49 individuals and organisations involved in some of the most notorious human rights violations and abuses in recent years have been designated for sanctions under the powerful new regime.

The UK’s first wave of sanctions under this new regime targeted 25 Russian nationals involved in the mistreatment and death of auditor Sergei Magnitsky, who uncovered widespread Russian corruption by a group of Russian tax and police officials; 20 Saudi nationals involved in the death of journalist Jamal Khashoggi; two high-ranking Myanmar military generals involved in the systematic and brutal violence against the Rohingya people and other ethnic minorities, two organisations involved in the forced labour, torture and murder that takes place in North Korea’s gulags.

The U.K. should mind their own business

They should face the COVID-19 that's killing them angry angry angry

Don't mind the idiots.

Nigerians in diaspora exhibiting their colonial mentality,the more reason they will never come back home.

Can UK dare attempt to sanction any USA official based on the various atrocities committed in USA?

APart from the killing you mentioned, are the idiots downgrading their country aware of what Trump did to the Black Life Matters protesters?

Judicial panels are on in most parts of the country and that should be enough for now Rather than allow our sovereign country to be ridiculed by the same thieves that stole from Africa to develop their country.

I plead with the UK government not to only
debate individual sanctions on government officials involved in the shooting of #EndSARS protesters in Lekki, Lagos state.

They should also debate sanctions to be placed on officials of the Kano State HISBAH corps that keep destroying our beers and frustrating the free flow of kpekus in Kano.

And to think that most of these Hisbah guys are regular faces at night in Abeddie and Festing.

I think we should look at things clearly regardless of party affiliation..... Some claim people were massacred, other say nobody was killed..... The mere fact the the idea of sending the military against unarmed protesters was conceived, planned and carried out is enough to show how our leaders reason.......

I really think we should begin to see human life in a more precious way...it's too bad that foreigners even value our own lives more we do ..... Our lack of empathy is the foundation of greed which in turn has given rise to the massive corruption ( the root of all our problems)we face today....I mean if I don't care about your life , how you survive can't be my concern...... It's just a sorry state we find ourselves. Always remember that ' ln love and equality, we are all well created" ... ALLLIVESMATTER

Soldiers, Police, Air force, Governors, Infact all politicians, When summed up, their total population is not up to 10million!!


Then again we have over 170million Nigerians which are being made to suffer by this minority, And to imagine that 170million Nigerians are not tactical enough to look for means to end this bad people in the helm of Government is a big mystery to me!!

Interesting times ahead for FG as regards their high handedness towards their own citizens....
Nigerian Politicians are a disgrace to sane climes.....I wonder how they think so highly of themselves because they are elected to Lead! The mere mention of sanction should make them feel ashamed....Anyway since they have refused to respect themselves by doing what is right they should be ready for insults and sanctions like a misbehaving Elder!

PROACTIVITY Leads To PRODUCTIVITY!

Considering sanctions when Nigeria is still in sparogative denial? undecided

Lie Mohammed did you hear that?

Lie Mohammed, the presidency should not take this lightly, please you should consider sending them their own palliative of sanctions!

Thanks for the ones you sent across the borders of America into the domains of CNN, they are still reeling in shock.
Anyways, please we need you to do the needful here also. angry

I think this government needs to test the strength of her sovereignty. They shouldn't just talk about sanctioning organisations, they should grow balls even if it's the size of a 2 year old!
