How do i claim this google places listing

Good day warriors,
I have a quick question here.
I have a business here in Nigeria which already has its business listed on Google places for a particular search term. I was able to edit the place page and correct some data mistakes that i found inside, i did that yesterday and when i came online today, i saw that Google has effected the change, and that's great.
Today, i want to claim the listing for this business but i can't do that.
My question now is: How can i claim the page, do i have to start afresh to claim the listing as if it was not already listed in Google? I mean, do i have to go to: Google Places and start everything from the beginning?
I was thinking that since this business is already in Google places, there's probably a link in the page to claim the listing easily, which unfortunately i'm not seeing now.
Please advise me on how to do this. Thanks.
Jude.

    Hi
    In the places page what does it say next to "edit this page" at the top left, which is what I assume you clicked to edit.
    If it says "Business Owner?" you should be able to claim it in the usual way.
    If it says "Owner verified listing" then someone has already claimed it.

    What is the status?

    Cheers

        Honest answer is that I don't know. There are neither edit or claim links on any Nigerian places pages I can find. Try looking at some different searches and see if you can find any claimable listings.
        It may be Google policy to disallow claiming in Nigeria...
