A Nigerian-born, British human rights activist, has said that President Muhammadu Buhari has about 48hours to shut down the Nigerian Embassy in UK or risk the chance of an all out breakdown of law and order.
The activist, Professor Alexia Thomas, warned that the high rate of corruption at the Nigerian Embassy in the UK has given cause for agitation. She added that protesters and angry Nigerians are likely to set fire on the Nigerian House, if the president does not heed the call.
Alexia who doubles as Chairman of the Commonwealth Liberation Party (TCLP), a registered political party in United Kingdom (UK) and President of the Independent Diplomat Commission (IDC), said the embassy has to be shut due to unchecked corruption, fraud, illegal arrest, and criminal torture of Nigerians detained in various British immigration centers across the Queen’s enclave.
According to a CNN iReport, Alexia disclosed that a formidable uprising and protests is already in the works by the Nigerian community in UK to set ablaze Nigerian consulate.
She said that the agitation would be held to tell the world the true story of how officials of the Nigerian Embassy trade every Nigerian deportee in the hands of UK Border Agency, for the sum of 3,000 pounds.
Alexia informed that there is a conspiracy between British immigration and UK Border Agency, one which she revealed in the course of her interview.
The activist therefore called on President Buhari to act fast, and salvage the situation before it goes into total ruins.
