Rights Violation: Stop meddling in our affairs, Nigerian Govt Tells UK, US, EU

The Nigerian Government has asked the United Kingdom, the United States, and the European Union to stop meddling in its affairs.

President Muhammadu Buhari’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr Femi Adesina, advised the countries and organisation to rather address the issues in their respective domains.

He stated this in response to a question on the allegations of human rights abuses by the Federal Government with a focus on those in detention, including the convener of #RevolutionNow movement, Mr Omoyele Sowore.

“We are not answerable to either the U.S. or the UK or the EU; we are Nigeria, a sovereign country,” Adesina said during an interview on Wednesday’s episode of Channels Television’s Politics Today.

He added, “Those countries and entities have issues of their own; let them deal with their issues. Let Nigeria also deal with her internal issues. We are not answerable to them.”
