Calm Before the Storm


"This was Maiyegun in Lekki area, a quiet Lagos (Nigeria) market, where you could buy local artcraft and antics. But this was before this spot was bulldozed without warning by forces of the Lagos State Government on last September. Properties and artwork valued approximately at 30/40 million Naira was destroyed letting about 120 artists from the African Pride of Art & Crafts and many more people without hope and income".
