BREAKING NEWS: Ongoing Forced Evictions & Demolitions Leave Over 30,000 Homeless in Lagos' Waterfront Communities

10 November 2016

SDI has been receiving photos and videos all morning from our Nigerian federation members of large scale evictions and demolitions taking place in Lagos’ waterfront communities. These are taking place despite an injunction from the High Court of Lagos State.

This is not what implementation of the New Urban Agenda, the Paris Agreement and the Sustainable Development Goals should look like!

More details are linked in the press release (also included below), including a copy of the court injunction and photos from yesterday (phase 1). More recent photos are on Twitter.
