Nearly 30,000 people have been made homeless over the past year by a series of evictions in Lagos, Nigeria.

The evictions went ahead despite Nigerian courts suspending the planned demolition of a string of communities settled on the Lagos creeks and waterways.

The UN has spoken out against the evictions, condemning the Nigerian government for ignoring international human rights laws.
