Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari says 69 people have been killed in protests against police brutality that have rocked the country.
The deaths were mainly civilians but include police officers and soldiers.
The president announced the toll in an emergency meeting with former Nigerian leaders aimed at finding ways to end the unrest, his spokesman told the BBC.
A group that has been key in organizing the demonstrations has now urged people to stay at home, and the Feminist Coalition also advised people to follow any curfews in place in their states.
The protests have drastically subsided but an uneasy calm remains in several cities.
Officials said a curfew introduced in Lagos state would be eased.
The protests in Nigeria began on 7 October with mostly young people demanding the scrapping of a notorious police unit, the Special Anti-Robbery Squad. END
