“Forced Eviction”
Badia Ijora, Lagos, Nigeria

Forced Eviction

Badia Ijora is or was a slumĀ area in Lagos. The informal settlement built on government-owned land. The area has been demolished, the residents forcibly evicted with little or no notice, leaving them homeless and destitute. With no posessions, no compensation, and no money to rebuild their houses elsewhere, many now live in the rubble of their former homes.
