Fight Boko Haram or Risk Disintegration – Nigerians in the UK

Nigerians in the UK Demonstrate

Hundreds of Nigerians in the United Kingdom descended on central London, defying the cold weather, to attend a Peace Rally outside Downing Street in solidarity with families who lost their loved ones in terrorist attacks in Northern Nigeria, and to send a clear message to the terrorist group Boko Haram that they will never win.

After delivering a letter to the Prime Minister’s Office, the protesters moved on to the Nigeria High Commission. At the Nigeria House, the protesters handed a letter to Mr Udoye for the High Commissioner, Dr Dalhatu Tafida.

Addressing the protesters, Mr Charles Khiran who represented The Central Association of Nigerians in the UK (CANUK), the umbrella Nigeria Organizations in the United Kingdom condemned the killing of innocent Nigerians in cold blood by Boko Haram.  “Violence is not in the nature of Nigerians and not in our culture, violence is alien to us, ” said Mr. Khiran.

The Protesters urge religious, political leaders and other well meaning Nigerians, especially those in Northern Nigeria, to help in bringing the despicable acts of terrorism to an immediate end, and to bring the perpetrators and sponsors of these heinous crimes to justice, no matter their standing in society’.

The group want the Federal Government of Nigeria to be proactive and serious in addressing the current barbaric situation in Nigeria, and to reassure Nigerians and Foreigners of their safety in any part of the country. The protesters also  demanded for meaningful compensation to all the victims of Boko Haram atrocities and the victims of any reprisal attack.

The Peace Rally was organized by Nigeria Associations and Communities, UK.
