The United Kingdom High Commission has announced the reopening of its visa application centres in Nigeria.
This is coming barely one week after it shut down its visa application centres in Victoria Island, Abuja and Lagos over the crisis arising from #EndSARS protests in the country.
The UK made this known in a statement on its Twitter.
It noted, however, that its centres would not open on Thursday due to the public holiday in Nigeria for Maolud Nabbiyy.
The notice was titled ‘update on UK visa application centres in Nigeria’.
Part of the notice read,
“Our TLS contact visa application centres are now open in Nigeria. Following the recent closures, we are working hard to process all outstanding applications.
“We thank you for your continued patience and understanding. Please note Thursday, October 29, is a public holiday in Nigeria and our Visa application centres will be closed.”
Meanwhile, a judicial panel in Lagos on Tuesday began an inquiry into the shooting of peaceful protesters last week and broader police brutality that had sparked demonstrations and unrest.
