The human rights group Amnesty International says it has received credible and disturbing evidence that Nigerian security forces shot and killed at least 12 people taking part in a peaceful protest in the country’s largest city, Lagos.

There have been weeks of demonstrations against police brutality, with protesters accusing the now-disbanded Special Anti-Robbery Squad – or SARS – of torture.

Nigeria’s president has appealed for calm and an indefinite curfew has been imposed on several regions including Lagos.

Sophie Raworth presents BBC News at Ten reporting from Mayeni Jones in Lagos.
