Nigerian police have reportedly opened f ire on protesters in Lagos after 12 days of demonstrations against police brutality. Two people are believed to have been shot after more than 20 officers started shooting at demonstrators in the city's Lekki district. We have all video evidence and updates here:

Video shown on Nigeria's Channels Television appeared to capture audio of live rounds being f ired at the scene. State officials have already imposed a 24-hour curfew on the 20 million people who live in Lagos - Africa's largest city - in a bid to bring the protests to an end.

The demonstrations, against a unit of the Nigerian police force called SARS (the Special Anti-Robbery Squad), show little sign of slowing down.

SARS was established in 1992 to tackle robbery, kid nappings and other v iolent c rimes, but has been widely criticised for human rights a buses including t orture, e xtortion and extrajudicial killings.

Nigerians claim plain clothes police officers frequently target young men with tattoos, dreadlocks and expensive cars arbitrarily.
