During an interview with Nigeria Info FM on Sunday, March 26, Llewellyn-Jones condemned some Nigerian politicians for making “derogatory” remarks.
He said: “Yes, let’s be specific, there were some people, like Femi Fani-Kayode, what is he saying and why is he saying it? I don’t understand.
“It is wrong from my perspective that he will speak on behalf of a party and that party does not distance itself from him and say stop doing that. It is wrong to say that,” Llewellyn-Jones said.
Llewellyn-Jones also reiterated the fact that the UK government will issue visa bans to people undermining democracy.
Llewellyn-Jones said there are about 10 persons already on the watchlist.
“We have a list, we are working through our list but we don’t publish those names. I know people say we should, but we have laws, and the law prevents us from doing that.
“At the moment the list is between 5 and 10 and it is growing,” he added.
Femi Fani-Kayode took to Instagram and Twitter to react. He slammed the British Deputy High Commissioner to Nigeria, asking him to “keep his dirty nose out of our internal affairs.”
