According to report reaching oyogist.com, Nigeria’s Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, has said the Federal Government is not panicking over the demand for sanctions by the United Kingdom lawmakers.
On Monday, UK lawmakers debated over alleged human rights abuses during the #EndSARS protest in Nigeria and demanded sanctions for government officials and security agents.
Reacting to the development during a chat on NTA on Wednesday, Lai Mohammed 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 govt 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
