It was a gesture gone awry as hungry Nigerians â€œattackedâ€ bags of rice donated by theÂ Presidentâ€™s wife to the less privileged in Abuja. Photographs left show policemenÂ battering the scrambling Nigerians at the International Conference Centre; then aÂ policeman polices away his own bag of rice; and a Federal Road Safety Corps Marshall alsoÂ takes his own. Right, an exhausted woman flattens out on the floor and two others coolÂ down, perching atop their rice loot. All Photographs by FEMI IPAYE.
