The Nigerian government displaced nearly 100,000 residents when it demolished the Makoko Slum in Lagos. Slum dwellers claim there was no official warning made by the authorities before the wrecking crews moved in. The government claims it is trying to clean up the city, but distraught former residents have been left pleading for assistance to find new homes. Footage and still courtesy of Reuters.
