Election: Protest In London Over Alleged $1million Bribe To UK Officials In Nigeria
Some concerned Britons have demanded the resignation of the country’s High Commissioner to Nigeria and other consulate officials alleged to have taken bribes during an election that held in Nigeria.
Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State reportedly traded $1 million kickbacks to the British diplomats in exchange of false and misleading information about the role of the Nigerian military in that election.
A group, UK Matters Most stormed No10 Downing Street, Buckingham Palace as well as the Westminister Parliament all in London to demand for the Prime Minister to take prompt action.
In a letter to Her Majesty, the Queen of England and copied the Prime Minister and signed by the Convener, James Moore, the High Commissioner and his supposed allies in the UK embassy were said to have dragged the country in the mud by wilfully obliging to be manipulated.
“The reputation of Britain has been dragged to the mud by such unpatriotic consulate officers in the British High Commission in Nigeria who by their actions misled the British government about the involvement of the military in the elections in Nigeria,” Mr Moore reportedly said.
