Send USR1 to nginx as non root user

on my setup i have a root user and a deployer user. The nginx master
process runs as root since i need to listen on port 80. The 2 worker
processes run as deployer.

So now i setup logrotate and would like to do a kill -USR1 `cat
/opt/nginx/logs/` but unfortunately i get a "Operation not
permitted" error, probably because nginx is running as root.

Has anybody here a similar scenario? Any tips or suggestions?

Thanks a lot,
