Occupy Nigeria protests in pictures - Abuja Part 1

Throughout last week, the nation of Nigeria experienced widespread protests against the governments decision to remove the subsidy on fuel, which consequently led to a hike in the pump price of petroleum sold at filling stations. The move has proved to be a very unpopular one which has sparked up anger and rebellion among Nigeria's teeming masses.

During the week, I took some time out to document what was happening in photos, hoping to capture the messages, sentiments, arguments and emotions of the protests.




























Feel free to share with your friends on Facebook and beyond so we can show the world what is happening in Nigeria.
