Nigeria: Killing at will: Extrajudicial executions and other unlawful killings by the police in Nigeria
Hundreds of people are unlawfully killed by the police in Nigeria every year. Some people die because they fail to pay police officers a bribe. Others are killed because the police use excessive force during arrest or are killed by police officers in extrajudicial executions. Once in custody and away from the public eye, some people are tortured to death in police stations; others disappear in custody. The Nigerian government must act immediately to end all unlawful killings, bring perpetrators to justice and ensure that victims' families receive adequate reparation.
