Nigerian megacity reclaimed from the ocean

A new megacity project is aiming to relieve the housing crisis in Nigeria's commercial capital, Lagos.

More than half a million people move to the city every year, and there is already a huge housing deficit.

The new homes are going to be built on land reclaimed from the Atlantic Ocean.
