Nigerians in the UK have protested in front of the British Parliament in London Wednesday condemning the shooting of peaceful protesters in Lagos on Tuesday.
The protests which had bigger turnouts than previous ones held in the city, was organized by #EndSARSUK and started at the Nigerian High Commission.
Angry protesters waved #Endsars placards and chanted “Enough is Enough,” demanding justice for the lives lost at Lekki Toll gate.
“I’m so devastated right now,” a female protester told Newsmen. “It’s more than SARS right now. SARS was just the trigger,” she said.
“Buhari, wake up and behave like a father! How can you let your children be shot?” another protester asked. Many Nigerians in the country and abroad have called on President Buhari to address the nation in the wake of the killings.
The UK earlier announced the closure of its visa application centres in Nigeria.
“Due to the ongoing protest in Nigeria and for the safety of both staff and applicants, our Nigeria centres will be closed for 48 hours at a minimum”, the UK said in a statement.
Nigerians in major cities like New York, Los Angeles, Washington DC, Toronto and Geneva have been carrying out the #EndSars campaign since it began.
