Security officers have fired tear gas and arrested a number of #RevolutionNow protesters in Nigeria's commercial hub, Lagos.

Demonstrators trying to enter Lagos National Stadium were kept at bay by security operatives who erected barricades.

#RevolutionNow protesters want an end to insecurity in the country, where kidnappings for ransom are rampant.

Demonstrations nationwide had been organised for Monday by pro-democracy campaigner Omoyele Sowere, who was arrested over the weekend accused by the authorities of calling for the government's overthrow.
