Protesters ‘shot dead’ in Nigeria
NIGERIA’S anti-police protesters have stayed on the streets in Lagos, breaking a government curfew after a night of chaotic violence and reports of demonstrators being shot dead.
Shots were fired as youngsters set up barricades by the Lekki toll gate in Lagos, where protesters were fired upon, causing injuries and an unknown number of deaths.
Nigerians are reeling from video at the Lekki toll gate in which protesters could be heard singing the national anthem in the darkness.
Shots can be heard followed by sounds of people running away.
Nigeria’s security forces have been blamed for at least 10 deaths by Amnesty International.
