Survivors of forced evictions in Lagos, south west Nigeria are homeless and without livelihoods. They are the urban poor whose rights to adequate and affordable housing has been strangled by a mega city project. These people want to return to their homes; they want their means of livelihood back. The Lagos State authorities have failed to provide residents of Otodo-Gbame with alternative housing and/or compensation for the loss and/or damage to property caused by the forced evictions. They have also not provided any relief or rehabilitation for those who lost their livelihoods.
