Following the alleged shooting of some peaceful #EndSARS
protesters in Lagos, the United Kingdom (UK) parliament
has announced that it will debate on whether or not to
sanction some Nigerian government officials allegedly indicted.
According to a report by Daily Sun, the UK parliament said
it has set aside Monday, November 23, as the day to hold the debate on individual sanctions.
The newspaper said this was contained in an email sent to it
by one of the Nigerians who signed a petition asking the
UK government to sanction those responsible
for the alleged killing of unarmed EndSARS protesters.
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.”
