Scores of peaceful protesters have been killed across Nigeria in the past week by armed thugs and security agents deployed by government to quell the demonstrations.
On Tuesday night, more than 10 persons were killed by the Nigerian Army at the Lekki Toll Gate area of Lagos as they demanded for an end to police brutality and improved governance in the country.
