Protesters all over Nigeria have been demanding for an end to police brutality in the country for over a week. But acts of violence towards protesters were reported in locations in Lagos, Abuja, Ogbomosho, Benin, amongst other cities.
It makes no sense that young Nigerians who are peacefully protesting against police brutality are being assaulted by the same police.
