Nigeria’s police minister: Security forces not involved in shootings

Security forces were not responsible for the killing of protesters in Lagos, Nigeria’s Police Minister Muhammad Maigari Dingyadi has said.

Amnesty International has said that security forces killed at least 12 people in Lagos on Tuesday during protests against police brutality.
