Togolese security operatives assault Nigerian travelers at Lome airport

A video has emerged showing how some security operatives in Togo assaulting Nigerians traveling via an airport in the country.

According to unconfirmed reports making the rounds on social media, a group of Nigerians coming from the US with Ethiopian Airlines had a connecting flight that would take them through Eyadema Airport in Lome, the Togolese capital.

Voices heard om the video clips suggests that the incidence occurred on Saturday, December 18 while awaiting their connecting flight to Nigeria.

This got them angry and an argument ensued which later resulted in a scuffle between them and the security agents.

The appropriate authorities are yet to comment on the viral video.
