CNN investigation sheds new light on anti-brutality protest
In Nigeria, thousands of young people have been protesting against police brutality as part of a largely peaceful movement called EndSARS. But on October 20, these protests turned deadly as the army and police moved in on unarmed civilians.
The Nigerian army has called allegations that it fired into the crowd “fake news” and told a judicial panel of inquiry that it did not shoot at any civilian but a new CNN investigation can reveal this is not true. CNN’s Nima Elbagir reports. Some of the images you’re about to see may be disturbing.
