After a brief shut, the United Kingdom High Commission announced the reopening of its visa application centres in Nigeria. This news was brought to public notice on the commission’s Twitter handle.
The UK Visa Application Centre was closed by the commission because of the crises that erupted in the country recently calling for an end to SARS and Police brutality in Nigeria.
The reopening of the visa applications centres after they were closed for nearly a week due to the gradual return of peace and order to some of those trouble spots, following the intervention of security agents.
The UK High Commission had been very critical of the outbreak of violence in the country, especially the shooting of unarmed protesters at Lekki Tollgate by alleged military personnel, and asked the government to thoroughly investigate the incident and ensure justice is done
