    Armed policemen took strategic positions within the premises of the British Embassy in Abuja as protesters under the aegis of Coalition of Civil Society Group on Monday demonstrated against the $9.6 billion judgment debt against Nigeria by a British court.

    Sources say the protesters who were asking for the reversal of the judgment, carried placards and banners under the rain while chanting anti-government songs.

    Some of the inscriptions on the banners read: ‘$9.6bn Judgement Is a Big Fraud; 200 Million Nigerians Are Against $9.6bn UK judgment; Nigeria First, Always Always; Nigeria and Britain Are Friends Not Enemy.

    The protesters called on the UK Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, to help President Muhammadu Buhari to fight corruption.
