The United Kingdom Parliament has fixed a date to debate the sanctions against the Nigerian government over its dealing of the #EndSARS protests last month.
In the wake of the #EndSARS protest last month, a petition was launched to implement sanctions against the Nigerian Government and officials and the petition got over 220,000 signatures.
However, Mr Buhari has yet to hold any of his military or political appointees to account since the killing of protesters by Nigerian soldiers on October 20. Instead, the Nigerian leader has been defiant, saying he would never tolerate any protests of #EndSARS magnitude again.
The administration has also targeted hundreds of citizens who took part in the protests for arrest, intimidation and travel restrictions. Both the military and civilian authorities have maintained no wrongdoing in the attacks.
It was unclear whether the British lawmakers would recommend sanctions after debating the petitions, or if the government would implement them considering Nigeria’s long-standing ties with the UK.
