The UK Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office, however, said it does not “publicly speculate on future sanctions designations”.

A petition had been filed on the UK government and parliament website, accusing the federal government and the police of violating the rights of protesters calling for an end to police brutality.

Responding to the petition on Wednesday, November 12, the United Kingdom Foreign Office said while it was concerned by violence during the protests, it awaits the outcome of investigations by Nigerian authorities into reports of police brutality.
