LAGOS (Reuters) - Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari called on protesters to stop demonstrating and engage with government in a short speech on Thursday.

Buhari did not address a shooting of protesters that took place Tuesday evening in Lagos, the commercial capital, but called on the international community, which has expressed concern over the incident, to “know all facts”.
