Reacting to reports of violence against protesters, the embassy in a tweet on Saturday said, “Sweden condemns all forms of violence and acknowledges the #humanright to peaceful protests.
“It is worrying to hear about alleged cases of brutality from #SARS in Nigeria and reports of abuse need to be followed up by the Nigerian legal system.#DriveForDemocracy.”
