Buhari warns protesters

Lagos

Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari has warned protesters not to “undermine national security” as he avoided addressing the shooting of demonstrators after days of unrest. The broadcast was Buhari’s first public statement to the nation since security forces were accused of gunning down peaceful protesters in Lagos on Tuesday. But he failed to make any direct mention to the incident that has helped unleash chaos in Africa’s biggest city and drawn international outrage. Instead he blamed those who had “hijacked and misdirected” weeks of protests against police brutality for bloodshed and warned against “undermining national security.”
