Nigeria: Police fire tear gas in ‘Democracy Day’ protests

Published
Police have fired tear gas and live rounds into the air to disperse protesters in Nigeria on Democracy Day, which marks Nigeria’s move to civilian rule more than 20 years ago.
Nigerians gathered to vent their anger over the worsening security situation, the country's failing economy and the government's recent Twitter ban.
