Thousands of Nigerians have taken to the streets of Lagos and other cities over the past week to protest police brutality.
The protests have continued despite the dissolution of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) police unit on Oct. 11, following accusations of human rights abuses.
As the protests continue, Nigerian Youth Minister Sunday Dare has said demonstrators must end their daily demonstrations and enter into dialogue with the government on law enforcement reforms. He said the government has met the protesters demands, including the creation of an independent body to investigate alleged misconduct and the release of arrested protesters.
However, even as Nigerian President Muhammadu Burhari and Nigeria’s police chief have promised force would not be used against peaceful protesters, officers have opened fire on demonstrators in recent weeks.
At least 10 protesters have been killed, according to Amnesty International.
