The UK parliament wants to impose sanctions on some Nigerian officials for playing an awful role in the Lekki Massacre during the #EndSARS protest.
Nigeria has been in a state of turmoil since the #Endsars protest begun barely two months ago, a protest Nigerians believe would put a stop to the rampant police brutality and severe human rights violations which have been happening in the country for quite some time now.
It was a dark moment to see very devoted citizens who were peacefully fighting to restore their freedom to lose their very lives in the process.
The special anti-robbery squad abbreviated SARS is a special agency set up by the Nigerian government to fight robbery and other unlawful acts which are being perpetrated by some citizens.
But series of complains from many citizens who have witnessed and experienced the SARS execute their mandate, confirm that their rights and freedom are being violated – Instead of the special anti-robbery squad protecting them, they are rather brutalising them over crimes uncommitted.
Thousands of Nigerians joined hands to hit the streets of Lekki aiming to be heard over their sufferings and to put a halt to the wild violence and human brutality meted out by a special anti-robbery squad(SARS) to the citizens.
The #EndSARS protest begun peacefully but ended bloodily. Hundreds of concerned Nigerians who took the country at heart painfully lost their lives in the course of the protest to rampage police shootings.
According to Africa story live, the UK parliament is debating whether or not to impose a restriction on some Nigerian officials over the Lekki Massacre and other human rights violations which happened in the course of the #EndSARS protest.
The UK parliament would be debating whether to impose sanctions on some Nigerian govt. officials today regarding the #LekkiMassaccre & other human rights violations emerging from the #EndSARS peaceful protest.
