Protesters vow to defy Nigerian curfew in fight 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 imposed earlier in the day.

Vision 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

    They could use rubber bullets. Killing protesters by opening fire is going to escalate things.
