He said the rights to peaceful assembly and freedom of expression are essential human rights and core democratic principles.

Pompeo, therefore, admonished the security services to show maximum restraint and respect fundamental rights.

He also enjoined the demonstrators to remain peaceful.

The statement titled, ‘Ongoing protests in Nigeria’, read in part, “We welcome an immediate investigation into any use of excessive force by members of the security forces. Those involved should be held to account in accordance with Nigerian law.
