Local business have picked up in Nigeria's commercial nerve centre of Lagos after the Eid-el fitr celebrations - a Muslim festival ending a month-long fast known as Ramadan.
From street corners to major bus stops, the bustle and hustle of Lagos return in full swing. Prior to the holidays, Nigerians had besieged banks to carry out last minutes financial transactions so that friends and families could have a blast.
Celebrations are over. Tea sellers, hawkers and transporters are seen making brisk businesses as Nigerians begin a fresh hunt for daily bread.
