#ENDSARS: FG SAYS IT IS NOT PANICKING OVER UK PARLIAMENT’S PETITION AGAINST NIGERIA
The Federal Government has said it is not panicking over the petition made by the British Parliament against the Nigerian Police Force.
Eons Intelligence, on Monday, November 23, reported that the British Parliament filed a petition against the Nigerian Government and the Nigerian Police Force (NPF) for alleged human rights violations.
Nigeria’s Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, made this known on Wednesday, November 25.
Speaking to NTA news on Wednesday, the Minister warned foreign countries not to take decisions based on ‘fake news’.
When asked about threats by the UK parliament to ensure sanctions, the minister said, “We earlier stated that government all over the world who have taken hasty decisions about Nigeria on this issue should please seek the truth.

“If the decision of any government all over the world is based on fake news, it is very risky. It brings me to the issue of the UK parliament resolution. We are not panicking at all as a government for two reasons – the resolution of the UK parliament is not the decision of the country and no serious government will take a decision such as imposing sanctions based on fake news.
“This is why we are warning foreign countries to seek the truth and beware of fake news. The entire #EndSARS protest was fuelled by fake news.”
