A Nigerian activist resident in the United Kingdom has warned President Muhammadu Buhari to shut down the Nigerian Embassy in London or have it burned to the ground.

Professor Alexia Thomas further said that some officials of the Embassy were corrupt and had formed the habit of collecting £3,000 each from the UK Border Agency for Nigerian deportees, This Day reports.

“President Buhari should honour our 72-hour ultimatum and shut down Nigerian high commission, if not, no one should held responsible when Nigerian protesters and angry Nigerians set Nigerian House fire on. If Buhari refuses to heed our advice, then don’t blame us in any way,” she said.

“I ask them to resign (the high commission officials) from that job at the Nigerian high commission in the next 72 hours because Nigerian uprising will stand shortly. And if Nigerian uprising stands, the Nigerian House in UK will need to be closed down,” she added.

She also said that she had been working tirelessly to put a stop to the deportation of Nigerians and other citizens of the Commonwealth nations.

Earlier reports had it that the UK was working with the Nigerian government to secure the deportation of 29,000 Nigerians who are living illegally in the country.
