Embassy & Visa Enquiry To lagos, Nigeria

Lagos, Nigeria's biggest, busiest city with a population of roughly 14 million and counting, had its origins as a small Yoruba settlement. Spread over several large islands on a vast lagoon (hence its name) and the mainland near the Gulf of Guinea, Lagos is Nigeria's principal port and its commercial and cultural centre.

The former capital grew to prominence when it was 'discovered' by the Portuguese in the late 1400s and became a central trading post for the area, also serving as a major hub of the slave trade. When the British annexed the city in 1861, they effectively put a stop to the slave trade, but took control of the trade and industry of the area. Once Nigeria gained independence in 1960, Lagos experienced a boom, which swelled the city's population and today, Lagos is one of the world's fastest growing cities with a full and complex tapestry of religious and ethnic groups.

Language: English is the official language in Nigeria and is widely used, though many other languages are also spoken.
