In the United Kingdom, award-winning singer Damini Ebunoluwa Ogulu, popularly known as Burna Boy, is supporting a new petition to approve the # EndSARS campaign by the federal government and public officials for human rights violations.
The petition on the website of the UK government and parliament accused the government and the police of violating agitators’ rights to condemn police violence.
It urged the UK to enforce sanctions that allow “ individuals and organizations that violate human rights around the world to be targeted.
“Deploying sanctions would provide accountability for and be a deterrent to anyone involved in violations of human rights,” it read.
The singer who is currently in the UK urged British citizens and residents, to sign the petition, urging other people in America and Asia to the same.
He wrote, “I am in London and I’m doing my best to make sure sanctions are imposed against Nigerian Government Officials. I need all citizens of all European countries, America, Asia EVERYWHERE to please Do the Same. THEY MUST ALL PAY!!”
