Well papas, there surely has been some sort of confusion over this issue of zip code.
I also have been using our GOOD OLD 234! for like "all my entire life" before I got bounced by one of the sites i was trying to register on. It makes me want to wonder if the information I've been leaving on net has been false evr since. Well thats not much of my fault.
Had to search and surf before I was able to get it.
And the more surprising thing about it is that it varies from city to city and even within some cities locations or street is also a factor.
sadTalk about learning, it never stops. Just when you thought you knew something, then,  shocked shocked shocked shocked
The good thing is that there are sites on net where you can get your zip online by specifying your counrty, city and street. An example is
  http://www.embassyworld.com/data/Zip_Codes.html
also try nigpost.com
You can also google the request and see what comes up.
try it.
To satisfy my curiousity, I embarked on finding the true meaning then of 234, turns out its our International Phone Code sometimes used as Int. Postal Code.
Hope I was Helpful. smiley

234 is the telephone country code for nigeria and not zip code. Zip code can be likened to postal code in our own case.
Postal codes in Nigeria are numeric, consisting of six digits. NIPOST, the Nigerian Postal Service, divides the country into nine regions, which make up the first digit of the code. The second and third digits, combined with the first, are the dispatch district for outgoing sorting. The last three digits are for delivery. The main postal head office in each region will have a postal code ending in 00001, such as, Garki Main HO in Abuja has the postal code 970001, Ikeja HO in Lagos has 100001, Lokoja in Kogi has 270001 and Port Harcourt has 500001. The lowest postcode being 100001 and the highest is 982002.[12] You can get the Postal code for each locality by visiting NIPOST Official Portal [1]

Re: Nigeria Zip Code by pendusky(m): 12:58pm On Jul 10, 2011

Re: Nigeria Zip Code by okpeD: 10:09am On Dec 17, 2011
Am really confused with this Zip code, but atimes i used +234 and many often it was rejected,
and what bagfuls me most is that, i mostly worked things one net, subscribes to many things
am interested in, but on the run they will ask for my country's zip code and if i don't provide it
properly, then i have to leave that site, Trust me am not Happy with that at all,
Re: Nigeria Zip Code by Seun(m): 12:08pm On Mar 29, 2012
Nigeria's ZIP code isn't 234.
Re: Nigeria Zip Code by hubreality(m): 12:43am On Apr 18, 2012
slimes: 234 na dialling code. 4 zip code visit http://www.nipost.gov.ng/PostCode.aspx and select the specific state.
Truly, Nigeria Zip Code is not as same as the phone dialing code. The new nipost portal you rightly posted above got all states covered, including the LGAs and communities zip codes.
