PhotoNews: Demolishing The Poor in Lagos

Written by Administrator

In the below image taken Thursday Feb. 28, 2013 A bulldozer levels the site of demolished houses at Ijora Badia slum in Lagos, Nigeria. The bulldozers arrived at dawn to this neighborhood of shanty homes and concrete buildings in Nigeria’s largest city, followed by police officers in riot gear carrying Kalashnikov assault rifles. The police banged on doors, corralling the thousands who live in Ijora-Badia off to the side as the bulldozers’ blades tore through scrap-lumber walls, its track grinding the possessions inside into the black murk of swamp beneath it. It left behind only a field of debris that children days later picked through, their small hands dodging exposed rusty nails to pull away anything of value left behind. (AP Photo/Sunday Alamba)
