    The European Union's foreign policy chief has condemned the killing of protesters demonstrating against police brutality in Nigeria, and has called for justice, according to AFP news agency.

    Josep Borrell is quoted by AFP as saying:

    Quote Message: It is alarming to learn that several people have been killed and injured during the ongoing protests against the Special Anti-Robbery Squad in Nigeria

    This adds another voice to increasing condemnation of the crackdown from politicians around the world.
