Nigerian forces 'open fire on protesters'

Nigerian forces have reportedly opened fire on protesters in Lagos after 12 days of demonstrations against police brutality.

Witnesses said smoke has been rising from the direction of a toll gate on Wednesday where the shootings allegedly took place.

Two people are believed to have been shot after more than 20 officers started firing at demonstrators in the city's Lekki district on Tuesday, witnesses told Reuters.

Video shown on Nigeria's Channels Television appeared to capture audio of live rounds being fired at the scene.
