Nigeria: security forces in Lagos open fire on protesters fighting against police brutality

Nigerian security forces have opened fire on hundreds of protesters in Lagos, as rallies against police brutality continued in defiance of a 24-hour curfew. Footage shared on social media shows shots being fired in the Lekki district of Africa’s largest city. Demonstrators continued their protest against the notorious Sars police unit, now dissolved but long-accused of extra-judicial killings, torture and extortion. The government has adopted measures including judicial panels to investigate abuses and compensation for victims, and officials have called for protesters to suspend the demonstrations to give the government time to make good on its pledges

    This is what police brutality looks like for anyone in the west who thinks they are living under tyranny.

    See the people commenting about BLM then insist they aren’t racist? How on a video of innocent people being gunned down by tyrants and you’re commenting trying to make jokes about an unrelated subject

    I have been saying it and will keep saying it
    Buhari is the worst president ever… His regime is a mess

    BTW why are some people in the comment section saying BLM?
    This isn't about racism
    It is about how the innocent citizens in Nigeria are being oppressed and killed by the so called Buhari, his fellow evil members with their bad governorship
