Petition demanding for the United Kingdom sanctions Nigerian Government and officials has gathered almost 100 thousand signatures.
The rule is that if a petition hosted on the UK parliament website gathers 100 thousand signatures the parliament will have to deliberate on it.
Petition.parliament.uk urged to Implement sanctions against the Nigerian Government and officials
The petitioners demand that “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.”
A Nigerian resident in the UK told ElombahNews the actions of Nigeria is “very shameful… this government is a shame to the world, an embarrassment to the black race.
“The petition for UK Parliament should ban all Government and military and police officials and their families from visiting the UK”.
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.
