#Occupy Nigeria#

It was something else. Most people didn't expect that type of turnout from citizens. The last time the streets of Lagos where this empty on a monday morning was probably during the strikes that happened in Ibrahim Babaginda's regime.

I was one of the photographers that arrived before 9am. BBC, Associated Press & every major tv station in Nigeria were present (AIT, NTA,TVC, & CHANNELS). Present at the protest were celebrities from Nollywood and the music industry (Jide Kosoko, 9ice, Femi Kuti, Seun Kuti just to mention a few). Almost everyone was chanting the removal of one that has recently been named the "most cursed president" of our time, JONATHAN GOODLUCK. The protest continues tomorrow and we'll be there to cover it. Enough of my story, let the pictures tell you what went down today.
