  • Description
  • With 20 million inhabitants, Lagos is the economic hub of Nigeria. The shanty town of Makoko, a stone's throw from the modern buildings of the city centre, is an embarrassment. 100,000 people live there with no running water or electricity. The authorities dream of turning Lagos into an ultra-modern city, like Dubai. But this is bad news for one fishing community at the heart of the city.
