Nigerians protest at removal of fuel subsidy

One protester was killed as thousands of Nigerians demonstrated against the removal of a fuel subsidy, which has led petrol prices and transport fares to double.

Officials say the man was killed by "mob action" in Kwara state, while witnesses say he was shot by police as they tried to disperse protesters.

There were marches in Lagos and other cities around the country.

Tomi Oladipo reports.
