Several lawmakers from the British Parliament have written to the British Commonwealth of Nations reporting Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari for doing nothing to stop the killings in Nigeria.

British MPs, Caroline Cox, David Alton, Jin Shannon and Helena Kennedy all wrote to the Secretary General of the Commonwealth, Patricia Scotland QC over the unabated killings in Nigeria’s Northeast and Northwest.

The lawmakers accused the Nigerian government of being complicit in the killings of thousand of civilians across the country as security forces seemed to be helpless against the onslaught.

The lawmakers urged the commonwealth to intervene in the growing violence in Nigeria and prevail on President Buhari to put an end to the killings.
