More Than 120,000 People Sign Petition For The UK Govt To Sanction The Nigerian Govt Over Alleged Human Right Abuses

Posted By on October 21, 2020 0


An online petition seeking for the sanction of the Nigerian government by the United Kingdom for human rights abuses over the #EndSARS protests has received over 120,000 signatures.

The UK was asked to implement sanctions that allow “individuals and entities that violate human rights around the world to be targeted” as the Nigerian government and the police has allegedly violated the rights of agitators protesting against police brutality.

As at 8:31 am on Wednesday, October 21, 123, 122 people had signed the petition.. The petition titled “Implement sanctions against the Nigerian Government and officials”, reads;

“The Government should explore using the new sanctions regime that allows individuals and entities that violate human rights around the world to be targeted, to impose sanctions on members of the Nigerian government and police force involved in any human rights abuses by the Nigerian police.

There have been deeply concerning reports of a Nigerian police force unit (SARS) engaging in illegal activities and human rights abuses, and there have also been reports of police firing at protestors calling for SARS to be disbanded.

Deploying sanctions would provide accountability for and be a deterrent to anyone involved in violations of human rights”.
