Nigeria

1992 - 1993

We lived in Lagos from March 1992 until July 1993. I was working for Shell in Lagos, Port Harcourt and Warri (which is about as far from civilisation as I ever want to get). The pictures below give a very false impression of life in Nigeria - we quickly lost count of the number of dead bodies we had seen. People were run-over, drowned, shot or burnt. More often than not it was the locals who were on the receiving end of such treatment but enough expats were being killed on a regular basis to make one feel more than a little ill-at-ease.
