Soldiers have opened fire on demonstrators gathered at a protest site in Lagos that has been the epicentre of widespread rallies against police brutality in Nigeria, according to several witnesses.
Nigeria’s Lagos is in a 24-hour lockdown and millions of people are under curfew across the country.
Demonstrators have been on the street for days over police brutality and some senior politicians are supporting them.

    Police brutality happens in all countries. Police in all countries need to be refunded for the people.

    Nigerians, I’m advising u as your brother from Somalia. We overthrew our evil and corrupt Government in 1991, and we have still not recovered 30 years later. Sometimes it is better to be patient and trust in God, and your situation will improve. Look at Somalia, Syria, Libya, so many countries overthrew evil governments but what came after was hunger, violence, anarchy, chaos, destruction and much worse. If Somalis could go back to 1991 I think we would have made a different decision knowing what came after

    They were shot dead and the bodies confiscated by the army as they continue to kill more even till this morning.
    No prisoners escaped it's all a lie
    How can prisoners escape with earpods and latest arsenal jerseys and dope backpacks. Meanwhile a police station is stationed close to the prison and all the prison guards and workers were all accounted for.
