Entire Nigerian police force mobilized after days of violent protests that have killed at least 69

Nigeria’s inspector general of police on Saturday ordered the mobilization of all officers to “reclaim the public space from criminal elements masquerading as protesters” after days of peaceful demonstrations against police brutality erupted into violence.

According to The Associated Press, M.A. Adamu in a statement ordered colleagues to “dominate the public space” and also called for an end to the unrest that has left at least 69 people dead.

The police inspector general also encouraged “law-abiding citizens not to panic but rather join forces with police ... to protect their communities from the criminal elements.”
