For almost two weeks, young people in Nigeria have been protesting police violence after a video showing a brutal police shooting went viral. The protesters are demanding an end to the corrupt anti-robbery police squad known as SARS. In response to growing street protests and the targeting of police stations by demonstrators. On Tuesday, the government declared a curfew for 24 hours in Lagos. Late that evening, uniformed security forces opened fire on peaceful protesters gathered at Lagos’ Lekki bridge. I spoke with Bukashot, a protesters based in Abuja, Nigeria about the incident and protests in Nigeria. #EndSARS and #EndSWAT
