Anthony Village is a typical Lagos suburb. A mixture of classes, ethnicities and professions live together peacefully.

The area is stirred by the fuel price hike to come out and protest. Locals meet and parade the streets before heading to join the main rally at Freedom Park in nearby Ojota.

Morenike Nedum, daughter of human rights activist, Dr Beko Ransome Kuti and niece of Afrobeat Legend Fela, is an Anthony Village community organiser.
