The Nigerian army and police killed
at least 12 peaceful protesters in two locations of Lagos in a deadly
crackdown on demonstrations, Amnesty International said on Wednesday.
“Evidence gathered from eyewitnesses, video footage and hospital
reports confirm that between 6:45 pm (1745 GMT) and 9:00 pm (2000 GMT)
on Tuesday 20 October, the Nigerian military opened fire on thousands
of people who were peacefully calling for good governance and an end
to police brutality,” the group said in a statement.
