    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Alex Omamuli of Abuja, Nigeria, snapped this photo of people protesting the removal of a fuel subsidy yesterday. 'We used to buy fuel at 65 Naira a liter but it was increased on New Year's Day, so this prompted a nationwide protest against this insensitive act by our government,' he said. Now, it costs about 145 Naira for a liter.
