Nasu Abdulaziz / Nigeria
SHOT WHILE DEFENDING HIS HOME
Nasu Abdulaziz loves football and cycling – normal pastimes for a young person in Nigeria. Except that Nasu’s circumstances are nowhere near normal. Between November 2016 and April 2017, Nasu and his community in Lagos were evicted without warning from their century-old settlement. Men came with guns and bulldozers, and razed their homes to the ground, leaving 30,000 people homeless, including Nasu. Today, Nasu and his peers are demanding to live in dignity.
