On Thursday, 10 June, Côte d'Ivoire's Prime Minister Patrick Achi and France's Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian inaugurated the International ... Counter-Terrorism Academy, an education and training centre for special forces units.
It was the culmination of a round of peaceful protests against police brutality, mostly attended by young people.
On 20 October, the police and military shot and killed unarmed protesters at the Lekki Toll Gate and Alausa in Lagos. Four months, endless judiciary panels, empty promises and heavy threats later, neither the state nor the federal government has admitted any wrongdoing, or even acknowledged that state security forces killed innocent citizens.
During the October #EndSARS protests, young people gathered, in person and online, to put their skills, knowledge and expertise to work together to keep each other safe.
