#EndSARS: UK Parliamentarians Propose Sanctions Against Nigerian Officials Involved in Lekki Shooting

The UK parliament on Monday debated a petition seeking to impose sanctions on Nigerian Government officials involved in the killing of peaceful protesters in Lekki on October 20.

For more than an hour, Members of Parliament condemned the violence that erupted at the Lekki toll gate in Lagos and insisted that Nigerian officials should not enjoy in the UK the liberties they deny their citizens at home.

The Minister for Africa was absent from the proceedings but his representative said that he will await the outcome of the judicial panels of inquiries into the shooting.

“Work is underway to consider how a global corruption sanction regime could be added to the government’s armoury,” a representative for the Minister for Africa, James Duddridge, said.

“This government will continue to press the Nigerian government and its security services to uphold human rights and the rule of law, to investigate all incidents of brutality, illegal detentions and the use of excessive force and to hold those responsible to account.

“We will closely monitor the judicial panel of inquiries and continue to advocate for investigations into police brutality. The government will consider its options as the panel’s work progresses.”

A particularly revealing moment came when an MP urged his government to place sanctions on Nigerians who flee to the UK with ill-gotten wealth, citing Nigeria’s former military ruler Yakubu Gowon’s alleged looting of the Central Bank of Nigeria.

“We need to stop those who are profiting from the wealth of that great nation and hiding it here. Some people will remember when General Gowon left Nigeria with half the Central Bank, so it is said, and moved to London,” the MP said. “We know that today, even now in this great city of ours, there are sadly some people who have taken from the Nigerian people and hidden their ill-gotten gains here.”

The petition, started by Silas Ojo, garnered more than 220,000 signatories, crossing the 100, 000 mark needed for a petition to be debated by the lawmakers.

Early last month, thousands of Nigerians took to the streets, calling for an end to police brutality and extra-judicial killings by the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).

Protests in Lagos turned bloody on October 20 when soldiers confronted peaceful protesters at the Lekki toll gate and Alausa, killing at least 12 people, according to Amnesty International.

The army, sanwo olu and the generalisimo don't know what they have put their hand into

Initially the army says we were not there
Then later they say we were there but at the request of sanwo olu...and we didn't use live ammunition...it was blank ammunition we used
Before you know it...they were preventing panel from assessing their morgue
And as a real niggarrr am aware only the generalisimo can give orders to the army....because as a generalisimo the army is at your beck and call...
Hahhaha...guess what niggarrrrs....buhari is the generalisimo....and the governor can also take permission from buhari to request for the army..which means buhari and sanwo olu are in deep shit

The same UK is the greatest looter of all time, raping different African countries as they like, in counterparts with their neighbour France.

The protesters are taking issues to these same looters who caused this problem in the first place sad. Lemme tell you something, the UK don't careful about you, what they are care about is your resources and oil. Don't give these looters any opportunity

“Practice makes progress not perfect.
You may be disappointed if you fail, but you’ll be doomed if you don’t try again.
Failure is the tuition you pay for success.”
If we wait until we’re ready, we’ll be waiting for the rest of our lives.
Study while others are sleeping; work while others are loafing; prepare while others are playing; and dream while others are wishing.

This people have bilateral relationship with Nigeria. They have business interest to protect in Nigeria. They can't sanction their erant boys here. Our leaders are mere erant boys to the western imperialist.

If they do, good one from them. I heard this honourable in this video saying that those who murdered NIgerians at lekki toll gate will not benefit from trade and travel to UK.

Nice one though I still prefer a situation where we as Citizens create a means to hold political and government office holders accountable for their inaction and bad policies!

We need to rise up to our responsibilities from wards to local government to state and federal levels!.

PROACTIVITY Leads To PRODUCTIVITY!
