LAGOS (Reuters) - The Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) on Wednesday urged Nigerian security forces to “exercise restraint” in handling protests and to act professionally.
There have been near-daily protests over police brutality across Nigeria for nearly two weeks. Soldiers shot at protesters in the Lekki district of Lagos on Tuesday evening, witnesses said.
