Tens of thousands of people have been threatened with being made homeless in Nigeria, as the government plans to replace shanty homes in the capital Lagos with new and improved houses.

They fear they will be evicted and cannot afford to live in the new buildings.

Human rights group have criticised the government's plans, saying authorities have the obligation to prevent forced evictions.
