BRITISH HOUSE OF LORDS SPECIAL SESSION ON  THE GENOCIDE IN NIGERIA’S MIDDLE BELT*

The UK House of Lords grappled with the issue of the ongoing genocide in Nigeria with a Lord hinting that the solution is in Nigerians hands in 2018. Another Lord lamented that  Nigeria is now 129th out of 148 countries in “the Legatum Prosperity Index, with particularly low scores in safety and security, economic quality and health.
 The majority of the Lords said these could no longer be called “clashes” and Lord David Alton who convened the Special Debate on Nigeria likened it to what he has seen in Darfur Sudan. Baroness Cox and outspoken advocate on human rights recalled visiting the burnt parsonage of a murdered Pastor in Plateau as well. Full transcript below.
