Nigeria: The rise and fall of Festac Town

Adeola writes about the rise and fall of Festac town in Nigeria: “This year 2007 marks the 30th Anniversary of Festac Town as a residential area. Festac is still one of the largest residential estates south of Saharan Africa. When I started living in Festac Town in 1977 with the rest of my family, I was only 5 years old.”
