End SARS: Judicial Panels Must Investigate Lekki shooting, All incidents – UK

 

 

The United Kingdom on Monday says it is following the probe of the activities of the outlawed Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) in Nigeria.

The UK said it was working with stakeholders and told judicial panels set up by state governments to also look into incidents associated with End SARS protests which unfortunately led to the death of some protesters and injured many on October 20 at the Lekki Toll Gate, Lagos when soldiers opened fire on them.

The UK, however, expressed concern over the civil disorder witnessed across the nation.

A statement by the UK High Commission in Nigeria urged security operatives to act within the confines of the law.

“We remain concerned by acts of looting & violence in Nigeria & urge security services use restraint as order is restored.

“Working with all stakeholders, judicial panels of inquiry must investigate all incidents, including #Lekki, and ensure accountability for crimes. #EndPoliceBrutality,” the state shared on its official Twitter handle read.
