Nigerians pressure government over police brutality vow

FRANCE 24 English published this video item, entitled “Nigerians pressure government over police brutality vow” – below is their description.

In Nigeria, two people are killed in protests over police brutality. The government has promised to disband a special unit at the centre of the anger. Also, as France marks Pink October, we report on the public health challenge posed by breast cancer in the West African nation of Togo. And voters in Guinea gear up to go to the polls, a chance to deliver their verdict on president Alpha Condé’s decade in office. He says a change to the constitution means he’s allowed to run for a third term.
