Security forces, including the police and the army, have been deployed to enforce lockdowns and sanctions, leading to bloody clashes and clashes in some states of the country.

The National Human Rights Commission in the country says it has received 105 complaints of human rights abuses by Abuja in the Nigerian capital and security forces in 24 of the 36 states.

Of the complaints, eight documented cases of extra-judicial killings have occurred, killing 18 people, the commission said.

According to official data from the Corona virus, 11 deaths were reported while law enforcement officials executed the extra-judicial system, killing 18 people.

The commission accuses security personnel of reckless and improper use of power, misappropriation of powers, corruption and violation of domestic and foreign laws.
