Fire Nigeria's Peace Demonstrators, 2,000 prisoners escaped from prison.
At least two people were killed when security forces opened fire on protesters who were staging peaceful demonstrations in Lagos, Nigeria's largest city, in protest of police abuse, AFP, Reuters and Bloomberg reported.
A Nigerian Red Cross official said at least two people were killed by security forces. The Lagos government said it had launched an investigation into the case.
The blast came after Lagos imposed a 24-hour curfew. Witnesses said security forces fired to disperse more than 1,000 protesters during peaceful protests, AFP reported.
"We were all sitting in peace, but they suddenly turned off all the lights on the streetlights and billboards, and everyone started shouting," said a participant who spoke on condition of anonymity.
He said, "They came to us. I couldn't tell who it was. They started shooting and everyone ran to survive.
Another protest participant said, "We are taking two people, one who has already been shot in the back and one who has been hit in the stomach, to the hospital, and another woman and another man to the hospital."
