The head of the Catholic Church, Pope Francis, has urged everyone to pray for Nigeria.
The Bishop made this call on Sunday in Rome.
He said prayer is needed to end further violence in Africa’s most populous country.
“Let us pray to the Lord for Nigeria so that every form of violence might always be avoided, in the constant search of social harmony through the promotion of justice and the common good,” he tweeted.
There has been widespread violence in the country as the #EndSARS protest to end police brutality turned violent.
Hundreds have been injured, and scores died in the protest.
The international community has appealed to the citizens for calm and urged the Nigerian governments to probe the use of force on protesters by security operatives.
