Over 120,000 signatures petition asking the United Kingdom to sanction the federal government and public officials for human rights abuses over the #EndSARS movement has received

As at the early hours of Wednesday, 21 October 2020, a petition asking the United Kingdom to sanction the members of the Nigerian government and police force for human rights abuses over the #EndSARS movement has been signed

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 8:31am 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.
