Lagos City in south-west Nigeria, in Lagos State on the Bight of Benin (an arm of the Atlantic Ocean). Built on several islands and adjacent parts of the mainland, it is Nigeria's largest city, chief port, and economic and cultural centre. Important districts include the old city, now the commercial district, on western Lagos Island; Ikoyi Island, situated just east of Lagos Island; Apapa, the chief port district, on the mainland; low-lying Victoria Island; industrialized Iddo Island; and a group of mainland suburbs (incorporated as part of the city in 1967), Ebute Metta, Yaba, Suru-Lere, Mushin, and Ikeja.

The Yoruba people constitute the city's principal ethnic group, although Lagos has a very diverse and fast-growing population as a result of ongoing migration from the rest of Nigeria and neighbouring countries. Lagos receives most of Nigeria’s import trade, in particular consumer goods, foodstuffs, motor vehicles, machinery, and industrial raw materials. Its export trade in timber and agricultural products such as cocoa, palm oil, and peanuts has declined since the early 1970s. More than half of Nigeria’s industrial capacity is located in Lagos’s mainland suburbs.
