EndSARS UK MARCH: Nigerians In The UK Take To The Streets, Seek Justice On Heinous Police Officers, Writes To The British Prime Minister, Boris Jonson To Intervene.


The UK government to place a blanket visa ban on all Nigerian politicians, security operatives and government officials until the culprits are fished out, added that the British government pressed the Nigerian government to compensate the families of the victims for their losses.

In solidarity to the youth who protested and demanded an end to the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, Police Brutality and Killing of innocent people, especially youths across the country, Nigerian citizens living in the United Kingdom have taken to the streets of London calling for the abrogation of SARS, end of bad rulership and government in Nigeria, seeking justice on heinous police officers.

The protest which was organized by the publisher, Ogene Ndigbo Newspaper, Hon. Ejike Ikezuagu, an Imo State born socialite, took place on 24th October, 2020, at Number 10 Downing Street, London, UK.

The protesters carried placards with inscriptions: “Nigeria Security Operatives Killing Harmless Nigerian Youths in Nigeria” as they marched in the streets.

They lamented insecurity, poor infrastructure and lack of jobs for youths, of which they advised the government to drastically address.

In their protest letter to the British Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, the protesters demanded that the British government compels Nigerian government to bring security operatives who massacred youths to face trial at the international court of justice, as well as meet the needs of the people.

According to them, “on behalf of the Nigerian community in the UK, we are presenting this petition to you, asking that your government supports the Nigerian people during their current difficult times. As you are well aware, innocent Nigerian youths carrying out a peaceful protest were gunned down in cold blood by the men of the Nigerian Army on Tuesday 20th October 2020”.

They frowned that “these Nigerian youths armed with nothing, but the national flag, were mowed down”, demanding that “the perpetrators of this heinous crime be brought to justice, The UK law stipulates that once a petition receives over 100,000 signatures, the House of Commons is compelled to debate the matter and as we have received more than double that threshold, we are demanding that your government act on the matter.

“The killing of the harmless Nigerians by the Nigeria security operates is always constant in Nigeria. Every part of the country is always a victim to these deadly acts of these security operatives and none of them have been prosecuted in the country”.

They regretted that it was very “unfortunate that life means absolutely nothing to the Nigeria security operatives. It is sad. No life is safe under them. The entire country is living in fears under the Nigeria police, army and other security operatives. It is their culture to molest, abuse and dehumanize Nigerians. Our youths have suffered hugely in the hands of the police, army in Nigeria. Our youths cannot drive any good car in the country, because the police will question them and kill them. They will not wear good cloths, nor dress nicely, nor have a stylish hairstyle, because the police will tag them criminals and kill them”.

Continuing, “the entire population of Nigeria is living in great fear, our mothers and sisters are being raped and killed, our fathers, uncles and brothers are being murdered ceaselessly. Police activities in Nigeria are a disaster and no Nigerian deserves such a treatment, especially from an institution made to protect the people. It is heart- breaking. We don’t deserve such ill- treatment.

“Nigeria as a country is not working, nothing in Nigeria works. Every sector in Nigeria is absolutely dysfunctional, economically. Nigerians are suffering, unemployment is hilariously high, no job, no infrastructure in the country.  Social life is completely in a mess, no functioning hospital, no welfare for the citizens. Politicians are playing with the life of the people. The life of the youth and citizens of Nigeria is in jeopardy. We need a new Nigeria where human beings should be treated as human”, the ltter stated.

The Nigerians in UK further insisted that the “British government presses for those responsible for this heinous crime to be charged before an internationally recognized court”.

While suggesting that the “UK places a blanket visa ban on all Nigerian politicians, security operatives and government officials until the culprits are fished out, added that the “British government pressed the Nigerian government to compensate the families of the victims for their losses.

“That the British government demands undertakings from the Nigerian government that from henceforth it will never use brute force to respond to legitimate and peaceful protests. That the UK assets of any Nigerian political or security official found guilty of this cold -blooded murder be confiscated.

Hon. Ejike Ikezuagu and Barr. Sam Eze.

“That the British government offer to help train the Nigerian Police Force in a bid to bring their working practices up to international standards. As things stand, the only way the NPF knows how to respond to crowd control situations is to open fire with live ammunition, reflecting that the British government backs an independent and international investigation into what happened in Lekki Tollgate, Lagos State, on 20th October 2020 and other inhuman abuses on the people and the findings made public.

“Halt all attacks by the use of live ammunition or any form of military force on these innocent unarmed protesters with immediate effect. Provide free urgent medical care treatment to all those wounded during the military attack at Lekki and across the country during these protests and adequately compensate the families of anyone who lost their lives in military killings or in the hands of the notorious SARS over the years.

“Release those unlawfully detained during the EndSARS protests. Trace, identify and lawfully prosecute those involved in the military operations that killed these innocent civilians.

“Do everything within the rule of law to restore and maintain law and order in the Country and honour all the lawful requests of the EndSARS youth protesters which they had outlined during their protests, making sure that the government puts things in place to make sure that our youths and indeed the whole country shall never get to this sort of low point in our history again. Provide security and jobs for our youths.

A British journalist interviewing Hon. Ejike Ikezuagu

“We stand in solidarity with the youths and all those fighting against tyranny, oppression and injustice in Nigeria. We look forward to hearing from you soon”, they recommended.

Interacting with OgeneNews reporter, Mgbemgasa Chidi, Hon. Ikezuagu said, it doesn’t stop on the protest, but we are following up the letter written to the British government.

He said, “As it stands now, immediately after the protest, Nigerians living in the United Kingdom gathered together and formed a new organisation, named, New Nigeria People’s Assembly” NNPA to redeem the country and get the youths involved in politics and take the leadership positions in the Nigerian government”. He said, Nigerians need a government that will work for all and not a government that works for just few people. The government in Nigeria at the moment is working for just few individuals. It has to change, he said.
