Forced evictions on the waterfronts of Lagos

In Lagos, an estimated two thirds of the city's 23 million inhabitants live in informal settlements, where a lack of security of tenure is a defining characteristic. Without it, residents live in constant fear of eviction.

I spent time in two communities of Lagos that have been impacted by forced evictions. The full galleries covering each community can be found in the galleries on Otodo Gbame and Sogunro.
