    The title of this video says the complete opposite of what the video is about. Nigerians are protesting police brutality. They are not protesting against brutality against police ("Nigerians protesting anti-police brutality being Lagos to standstill"). If possible, you might want to fix that.
    I was a bit confused by the heading.

    Thank you CBC . The world needs to know about this. Nigerians are around the world doing very well. But dare not come back home because there is no security, unstable power, corrupt immigration officers, bad roads and many more

    Wouldn't that headline make more sense if it just said "protesting police brutality"? Putting "anti" in there makes it sound like they support police brutality.

    Look, police ARE paid by us tax payers! State workers….paid by tax payers, do you pay a contractor to build YOUR home the way HE wants!? Then why the f would any sane person pay anyone police or not, to NOT do what WE want!? We pay politicains, like theres a magical fund with their paychecks!? WE ARE PAYING FOR THEM TO DO TO US AGAINST OUR WILL AND IT MUST STOP NOW!! WITHOUT US THERE IS NO THEM, AND WITHOUT THEM WE CAN BE OURSELVES, good people take the place of cops, and shoot criminals on site, no jail paid for by tax payers, and in a year tops NO ONE will want to be a criminal. Police actually promote violence and are the definition of terrorism! We DONT need them anymore they have failed over and over with the drug war and criminals running rampid, standing by while they assault and vandalize. Time for a reset of all our governments.

    The title should be "protesting police brutality" without the anti.

    Two things. The title of this video makes no sense.. also you're showing only a part of the protest. There were peaceful sit ins and marches with more than enough video evidence. No need to repeat the same reel over and over.

    Well well well.. isn't that just an atrocious mess. Show some dignity. Show some restraint and enough with the over relaxed personalities … and speak to someone like you mean it .. not just blabbing out loud

    This is just a general message to most of their population

    LOL, the headline says they are protesting "anti-police brutality" but it appears they are protesting police brutality. CBC should keep illiterate texting-generation milennials away from headline writing.

    What???? Nothing on the WE Scandal and the Liberal Coverups in the ethics commission.
    NDP MP Charlie Angus's statement : " There is something Juicy in those documents that they (Liberals) are desperate to avoid the opposition from getting."

    I'm assuming they actually HAVE police brutality… but I mean BLM and antifa are fighting a great fight according to cbc so… idk wtf to believe… but again I would guess from what we hear from their history and citizens… they have a true issues with government. Im so glad to see them banning together and standing up to fight back instead of running away and letting it keep happen and blame the usa for not saving them

    You forgot to tell us how Trump's white supremacist voters have caused this Nigerian "anti brutality protest". Also, whoever wrote this headline is semi-illiterate.
