18 killed by security forces over lockdown in Nigeria

Agency News

Nigerian security agents have killed 18 people in their enforcement of measures to curb coronavirus, a toll higher than that inflicted by the disease itself, the country's human rights body said.

The National Human Rights Commission said in a report late on Wednesday "there were 8 documented incidents of extrajudicial killings leading to 18 deaths."
