Armed police. Outlaw gangs. Louis follows chaos and corruption in the Nigerian city.

Watch Louis Theroux: Law and Disorder in Lagos on BBC Select

How do you make sense of a city that seems utterly lawless and corrupt, and at other times strangely orderly and formal?

Sounds like a job for Louis Theroux.

The British filmmaker spends time with paramilitary state groups and local youth gangs to wrestle with the paradox at the heart of one of the fastest-growing cities in the world. Chaos mounts around him as he continues asking the questions in this Louis Theroux BBC documentary.
