Abuja

 
Abuja Nicknamed, Second London, Abuja is Nigeria's new capital. It is a beautiful city with clean roads, The idea was conceived in 1975 and the seat of government formally moved to Abuja from Lagos in 1992. It was intended to be developed in four phases. The first phase had so far been completed. In a few years the city will have a few million inhabitants, but right now there are only a few hundred thousand. This means that the city is pretty spread out and there are a lot of half empty spaces. There aren't a whole lot of sights in Abuja (yet), the main Mosque is pretty enough, but Muslims are not allowed in and the guards are not always very welcoming. Close to Abuja you find Zuma Rock, which looks like a pale version of A...
 

Abeokuta

 
Abeokuta Abeokuta is the capital of Ogun State. The town derives its name (meaning Under the Rock) from the Olumo Rock, a massive outcrop of granite rocks. The highest point of the Rock is 137 meters above sea level. The Rock is naturally surrounded by caves , one of which is about 20 feet long and 25 feet wide. Abeokuta lies in the South-West of Nigeria about 100 kilometers from Lagos. To the North of it, some 70 kilometers away, is the city of Ibadan, the capital of Oyo State. The Rock is sacred to the Egba of Abeokuta because it was the place where they found refuge from their attackers in the days of internecine wars. To them, Olumo Rock stands not only as a monument of faith in unity but also as a source of strength ...
 

Ilaro town

 
Ilaro town Ilaro town, western Ogun state, southwestern Nigeria. Located on the former trade route from the towns of the empire of Oyo to the port of Porto-Novo (now the capital of Benin), 40 miles (64 km) southwest, it was established by the late 18th century as the capital and chief trade centre of the Egbado people (a subgroup of the Yoruba). With the decline of Oyo in the early 19th century, the Egbado kingdom was raided for slaves by the Dahomeyans until it was absorbed in the 1840s and '50s by the more powerful Egba kingdom at Abeokuta (29 miles [47 km] northeast). As a subject town, Ilaro served the Egba as a trading post on the western route from Lagos to Ibadan. In the 1860s European missionaries arrived and established...
 

Benin City

 
Benin City Benin City was one of the most important cities of West Africa until the British came along. They looted the town and took 2000 bronze statues back to Britain. Today Benin City is still a very pretty city. It is still an important center for traditional art, see for example the statues in the Okada House. The National Museum in the centre still has a few good pieces of the traditional statues but they are not as good as those in the British Museum. Furthermore there is an Oba Palace and a few good art galleries. The spectacular beauty about the city is that it is surrounded by moats which are as historical as the walls of china. It was used as a form of defence against enemies of the city. The moat is said to...
