Nah... all the asslicking of the Afonja butthole has been done, (and is still being done) strictly by you on this thread. If you have not mentioned their name in one day, things do NOT go well for you. undecided You chant the word 'Afonja' in every single post, trying to get their attention. Yet, they have not given you a single prize for your efforts. sad How sad. But then, that is the way of the world, isn't it?

Those who seek the attention of the Afonjas as desperately as you do, hardly ever get it. My advice?? Try harder, I am sure that one day they would wake up and notice you. You also need to stop being a hater. It doesn't get you anywhere.

As for my minority clan, they are not complaining to you, are they? wink Your childish gibes cannot diminish them in any way. I cannot say the same for your people though, as they whine incessantly about everything on earth. The truth is, the way you are responding to every post I make on this thread shows you secretly envy me and you wish to be in my shoes. cool Can't help you with that though. Sorry...

There is an interesting book written about Lagos titled POSSESSED, and the author is the former Attorney-General of Lagos State, Olasupo Shasore. Even though I have lived in Lagos for many years, I guess I still do not know enough about the city. Shasore's book contains interesting aspects about the city of Lagos, from its history down to its political antecedents from the 19th to the 20th Century.

When you have read Olasupo Shasore’s Possessed A History of Law and Justice in the Crown Colony of Lagos, 1861-1906, you would no longer be in doubt regarding the special status of Lagos within the Nigerian context. undecided

While it has never been in question that the Kingdom of Lagos by far predates modern-day Nigeria, it has perhaps never before come out so glaringly that Lagos was indeed an independent, sovereign nation-state before the British invasion and bombardment of 1851, more than half a century before the term Nigeria was coined by Flora Shaw. wink

To do justice to the subject matter, the author divides the book into eight chapters, namely, The Lagos Kingdom in the Law Courts, 26 Upper King Street – Legal and Traditional Settings, Bombardment and War on Lagos 1851, The 19th Century Treaties, To Do Justice to this Place – Legal History, Challenge To Authority – The Eleko, Land and Property Ownership, and The Sun Sets on The Colony of Lagos. He goes further to add an ‘Afterword’ and ‘Appendices’ as well as reproduce pictures and documents that not only embellish the work but also aid the reader’s understanding of facts.

The beauty of Shasore’s account lies essentially in its close attention to detail – no detail is too minute to escape the thorough researcher in him. The author records that by 1850, Lagos had an estimated population of 30,000 people who predominantly spoke the Oyo dialect of what was to be later widely referred to as Yoruba. The small port city-state was a monarchy ruled by the Ologun (or possibly Eleko or later Oba), and its political power structure rested on this dynastic line, a line that had by this time been in continuous rule for over 200 years. And so, Lagos is not a ‘no man’s land’, and to continue to bandy such falsehood reflects “poor learning, ignorance and mischief”. sad

The contribution of Lagos to the making of modern Nigeria comes out clearly in Possessed. Having severed itself from the Benin Kingdom and asserted its independence by discontinuing the payment of tributes to the Oba at Benin, and having by this time acquired great prominence and wealth, Lagos proved too powerful to be challenged by any local authority. It took only the superior naval power of Britain to subdue Lagos, but not without stiff resistance from the Lagos Africans.

The British bombarded Lagos in 1851, and in 1861 took active possession of the island city-state with the fraud called the Treaty of Cession of 1861. With the establishment of formal authority, it became, effectively, The Crown Colony of Lagos, “with a flag, its own constitution, government and subjects, some 53 years before the establishment of Nigeria”. wink

The need to harness the resources of Lagos would in 1906 lead to its forced amalgamation with the Southern Protectorate, and in 1914, the absence of funds to run the Northern Protectorate necessitated the creation of Nigeria through amalgamation in order, it would appear, to run the whole country with resources from Lagos. undecided

So, whether in the pre-colonial, colonial or post-colonial era, Lagos played – and continues to play – “a prominent, inevitable, eminent role” in West African trade and society as well as in the making of modern Nigeria. As Shasore argues, “Without Lagos and the events that led to intervention in its internal affairs, the entire atmosphere for amalgamation may not have been contrived. In some ways, Lagos is the mother city.

Funny and unintelligent assertion by the " No Man's land" singers
How can a grown adult decides to act like a kindergarten pupil @ d full glare of the public..Geographical components includes; Human geography that is to say, the peculiarities of the people living in a particular area that makes them differ in all ramifications from others, we also have regional geography which explains why river Niger will be River Niger and not river ogbomosho, river ikot Ekpene and Sundry others. It talks about Places, locality et al..regional geography was meant to naturally check-balance, reduce the probability and end the eventuality of confusion, but unfortunately, that purpose has been defeated among the " No man's land " singers

Lagos is located at the lateral western quadrant which falls into the south west category of 8 cardinal point and automatically placed it a Yoruba state( that's the only region in Nigeria where Yoruba tribe comes from).
The only medium where Lagos can at least reasonably fit into your " No man's land" hallucinations is if ( and thats a very big "if"wink you guys can insert a new element into the 8 cardinal points where ur unintelligent assertion can become the 9th component.
