United Kingdom warns that it could sanction any persons that incite violence in the upcoming Edo and Ondo states elections

  The United Kingdom warned that it could sanction any persons that incite violence in the upcoming Edo and Ondo elections in a statement published on their Twitter account. The sanction could include restrictions on eligibility to travel to the UK, restrictions on access to UK-based assets, or prosecution under international law. The Edo state election is slated for this weekend while that of Ondo is slated for the 10th of October.

The statement reads, "The UK takes a strong stand against election-related violence and just as we did in the general election in 2019, we will continue to take action against individuals we identify as being responsible for violence during elections. This could include restrictions on their eligibility to travel to the UK, restrictions on access to UK-based assets or prosecution under international law."
