Law and Disorder In Lagos
Open iTunes to preview or buy TV programmes.
Louis Theroux spends time on both sides of the law in Lagos - the former capital of Nigeria and one of the fastest growing cities in the world. On the streets it is not the police who wield power but gangs of fight-hardened young men known as Area Boys. Louis meets MC, their enigmatic leader and experiences the Area Boys' world from the inside. Meanwhile, KAI, the government's Kick Against Indiscipline paramilitary task force, storms different areas of the city, bulldozing whole precincts and arresting hundreds if they detect any violation of the state laws. Louis wrestles with life in a world in which the forces of law and the forces of disorder are not always readily distinguishable and nothing is quite what it seems.
|1||VideoLaw and Disorder In Lagos||Louis Theroux investigates who wields the power on the streets of Lagos, taking in a tour of the grand residence of a local 'union' leader and his extensive shoe collection, and ending in a chaotic mini-riot with gunshots, blood and mayhem. In between, he rides with the government's paramilitary task force, who use their own strong-arm tactics, and are in their way just as feared as the gangs.||58:38||£1.89||View in iTunes|

Lagos life.....REAL TO THE CORE!!
I live in Lagos, and when I watched this I thought, this man is an absolute nutter!!! Not only because of what he was able to capture and present, but because he's so BOLD to do so - woe betide him if he dares come back, LOL!!
Louis, I've seen all of your shows - he who dares, wins! - you deserve all the accolades, and more - and your sublime humour is breathtaking - especially your facial expressions!
At £1.89 it's a bargain....well done Louis, and your crew - WICKED!!
