The UK in a tweet on Monday night called for security operatives in Nigeria to use restraint until calm was restored to prevent an escalation of the situation while also calling for an investigation into the killing of unarmed peaceful protesters by the Nigerian Army at the Lekki Toll Gate area on October 20.

The tweet reads, “We remain concerned by acts of looting and violence in Nigeria and urge security services to use restraint as order is restored.

“Working with all stakeholders, judicial panels of inquiry must investigate all incidents, including Lekki and ensure accountability for crimes. #EndPoliceBrutality.”
