Nigeria’s biggest city, Lagos, has had a round-the-clock police curfew after demonstrators came under fire from security forces last night.

Eyewitnesses, as well as the UN Secretary General, said there had been “multiple deaths”, though Nigerian officials have denied this.

Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab has called on the Nigerian government to urgently investigate.
