The United Kingdom High Commission office was agog with massive protest on Monday in Abuja following the $9.6 billion judgment granted to Process and Industrial Development (P&ID) Limited against Nigeria by a UK court.
The protest was led by a Coalition of Civil Society Groups who clamoured for a reversal of the ruling which will be funded from Nigeria’s foreign reserves which have seen a weak performance for some period of time.
According to the protesters with various placards, they would continue the protest for the next one week until the judgement was reversed.
Various inscriptions appeared on some of the placards, such as “$9.6bn judgement is a fraud,” “No to illegal take over of our national assets,” “Nigeria rejects fraudulent judgment from British judge,” “Nigeria and Britain are friends, not enemies” and “Boris Johnson help President Muhammadu Buhari fight corruption.”
There were also captions such as “Both Local and International conspirators behind the P&ID fraud must be punished,” “We say no to second slavery, this judgment cannot stand,” among others.
