Lagos city and boss port, Lagos state, Nigeria. Until the point that 1975 it was the capital of Lagos state, and until December 1991 it was the government capital of Nigeria. Ikeja supplanted Lagos as the state capital, and Abuja supplanted Lagos as the government capital. Lagos, be that as it may, remained the informal seat of numerous administration organizations. Lagos is Nigeria's biggest city and one of the biggest in sub-Saharan Africa.
By the late fifteenth century Lagos Island had been settled by Yoruba anglers and seekers, who called it Oko. The zone was commanded by the kingdom of Benin, which called it Eko, from the late sixteenth century to the mid-nineteenth century. The Portuguese initially arrived on Lagos Island in 1472; exchange grew gradually, be that as it may, until the point when the Portuguese were allowed a slaving imposing business model a century later. The nearby obas rulers delighted in great relations with the Portuguese, who called the island Onim and, later, Lagos and built up a prospering slave exchange.
