FILE - A newspaper vendor uses rocks to stop the day's front pages from blowing in the wind in Kano, northern Nigeria, Feb. 24, 2019.
The U.S.-based Committee to Protect Journalists has called on Nigerian authorities to “investigate and hold accountable the police officers” who allegedly beat and threatened journalist Kofi Bartels.
CPJ said Bartels told the committee that on Tuesday he was beaten and arrested for trying to film several officers who he said were beating a young boy.
Bartels, a journalist with Nigeria Info, also tweeted about the attack in the city of Port Harcourt.
