Colonialism - Annexation of Ado by the British

The Annexation of the territory of the King of Ado by the British in 1891 - a real pictorial example of the extension of the British Empire. Captain George Chardin Denton (1851-1928), Colonial Secretary of Lagos (Bight of Benin, now Nigeria) taking over dominion of the region under the British flag. The caption below the photograph is (in itself) a quite incredible example of colonial thought and propaganda! Date: 1891

Spotlight: Nigeriaa€™s floating school Featured Lagos Print

Spotlight: Nigeriaa€™s floating school

Chalk is placed on a blackboard at a floating school in the Makoko fishing community on the Lagos Lagoon, Nigeria February 29, 2016. In Makoko, a sprawling slum of Nigeria's megacity Lagos, a floating school capable of holding up to a hundred pupils has since November brought free education to the waterways known as the Venice of Lagos. It offers the chance of social mobility for youngsters who, like most of the city's 21 million inhabitants, lack a reliable electricity and water supply and whose water-based way of life is threatened by climate change as well as rapid urbanisation.
