EndSARS: We have reached out to the UK Government – Geoffrey Onyeama

The Federal Government of Nigeria has stated that it has reached out to the United Kingdom to explain its side of the story over the #EndSARS crisis following a petition being considered by the United Kingdom to sanction officials of the Nigerian government over alleged human rights abuses during the protest.

Speaking at the weekly federal executive council (FEC) meeting, Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama, explained to State House Correspondents on Wednesday that Nigeria has reached out to the UK government and has presented its own side of the story to aid its deliberations on the matter.

“Yes, we have reached out to the UK government. The meeting that took place were Parliamentarians and they do not speak for the UK government which acts for the United Kingdom and they have also heard the side of the (Nigerian) government regarding everything that has happened.

“So, we have been in touch with them and engaging with them. Of course, as in any democracy, the members of parliament are able to also air their view.

“But what is important, is that a balanced picture is made available to them, before they take any decision,” Onyeama said.
