Nigeria’s security forces “shoot dead at least 12 civilians” as protests grow – BBC News

There have been international calls for an end to violence in Nigeria after widespread reports of the killing of civilians.

The human rights group Amnesty International says it has received credible and disturbing evidence that Nigerian security forces shot and killed at least 12 people taking part in a peaceful protest in the country’s largest city, Lagos.

There have been weeks of demonstrations against police brutality, with protesters accusing the now-disbanded Special Anti-Robbery Squad – or SARS – of torture.

Nigeria’s president has appealed for calm and an indefinite curfew has been imposed on several regions including Lagos.

Sophie Raworth presents BBC News at Ten reporting from Mayeni Jones in Lagos.

    Why does the US not cover these protests, like they do with Hongkong, Bolivia and Venezuela? Thats right, because its not supported by the CIA.

    Except the Lord Jesus Christ as he is the lam and is the hadjl, the gospel of your salvation. Not any religion can save you. We were all deceived by Satan and his devisions many people worship false Gods, follow false doctrine, have idols, worship deities and practise many religions.
    Jesus christ is not a religion and hated religion, as it is false. Catholics and al other nominations, Buddhist, Hinduism, New Age are all manmade beliefs based on each cultures and holy scriptures. There is only one that can save, as he rose from the dead, so we can defeat it also.  The only prophet and the son of men of the living God written about in the KJV Holy Bible.
    The God of Israel. The God of all creation, The Word that was made flesh in Jesus Christ.
    Amen.

    Only born again Christians are on the path of salvation. It's you in Christ and Christ in you. By doing the will of God the father with help from the Holy spirit. Formost believing that he is the only anointed able to forgive sins, not the pope or bishop. They honour Mary and Saints over Jesus Christ, Emanuel, Son of Man, Prince of Peace, King of Kings, and Lord of Lords our true saviour. Jesus Christ of Nazareth.
    Believe in the finished work on the cross. Heal the sick and cast devils out. Do good works, but abide in his sabbath rest, as he abides with the spirit in you. 24/7.
    Have your mind renewed and do what Jesus says you should do.
    Amen.
    There is only one father and that is in heaven. We honour, Father son and Holy Spirit.
    Amen.
    I recommend Curry Blake, DHT, for a awakening.
    keep up with the good work for the kingdom of God

    Praise the Lord Jesus Christ and his church and ministries, with regards to his saints, angels and prophets of righteousness.  Bless Gods kingdom and his Holy spirit.  Bless all the children on the earth, and the young, old and those with infirmities,and those suffering bondage, hunger, famine, war and imprisonment.
    I pray for the lost, all back sliders, and all The nations and its leaders. I pray for all my brothers and sisters in the faith, all unbelievers and sinners.  I pray for my kids, family, extended family, friends neighbour's, enemies  and those of Christ.
    Hallelujah praise his mighty name and bless those that read this. Jesus loves you all. Amen. X

    STOP watching censored mainstream media, All is part of the same order as Bill, musk fauzi and co. Most people are deceived with false teachings and traditions, idols, and  fake gods, ultimately serving satans cause.
    With pre-fabricated stories and phi-lanthropy of the rich and famous, that seem so innocent but so dece-ptive THESE RICH AND FAMOUS are feeding the global satanist and pedo celebri-ties ambitions and agendas.
    The main stream media are in with the political satanic agenda.
    The NWO want full controll and fully condition the human brain and body with nano tech-nol-ogy and you will literally become slaves to science and the beast, read the book of revelation in the bible. We are so close. I PLEAD with all, NOT to take ANY vacci-ne as they are TAINTED WITH several EVILS. Look up 060606, ID 2020, ID 2030 and read what these demons are realy planning and playing at. 

    Please wake up, as they have been busy bringing about this agenda for full control and de-populati-on of most humans on planet earth.

    Yes folks, they can also contr-oll the weather with, proje-ct HARP, and your brains through proje-ct MK UlLTRA for many years,  now they are preparing for proje-ct COV-ID-19 and proje-ct blue-be-am.

    By keepìng changing the narrat-ive all the time and changing def-initions gover-ments are de-ceivi-ng people with false information.
    There are no people dying of covi-d, other than any flu would do to people with comprom-ised or low immu-ne systems. 
    All a hoa-x to bring about Tyra-nni-cl new world system in which people will be hooked up to arti-ficial int-ellige-nce in due time. Do not be dec-eiv-ed by all this circus, do your own homework and check the real stats and research from multi-ple    countries. You will see with all the fak-e and un proven scie-nce, 
    These meas-ures are letting 300 million people starve and equally, numerous people unable to get treatment for all other ailments, Saving lifes? really.  Its all a pla-ndem-ic from the eli-te to redu-ce the world populat-ion by means of vac cines which chang-e your dna, which than be pat ented and owned by Ga-tes, Fau-ci and co. A cas-hless socie-ty coming soon.

    Wake up people. We all need Jesus Christ only, not any false teaching or religion.
    True Christian's are not followers of religion. They follow the commandment of God in the bible and put their trust in the finished work on the cross. Amen.

    People that preach the truth in Jesus Christ are forgiven and free of sin and unrighteousness. Out of this world and not in it. Anything that does not line up with truth is of satan, dece-iving most with false teachings. I would recommend reading the word of God yourself and come to the truth.
    Religion in churches is so false and wrong. They pick verses to meet their own understanding and keep people in sin and take the money of the people and spread a fals gospel.

    Praise the Lord Jesus Christ for truth, we just have to believe and put our trust in him, not ourselfs. Be born again.
    Ameen x

    Use unscrupulous divisive tactics of the United States, trump is the real American personality: sinister, cunning, lying, hot, ignorant, rogue, mean, dirty, playing with others, and doing anything for the purpose. This is the American spirit, American values, American human rights, American freedom and democracy, American dream and American pride!!!! Trump like an idiot, or Pompeo like a pig's head, are typical features of Americans. America's strength in the past was obtained by plunder and extortion, by barbarism and banditry. This value without the support of perfect civilization foundation is just the garbage dump of human beings!
