What's there in Enugu that empty, deserted state? What industry, importance is it known for? Yes, you are right it's insane to compare that state with Almighty Ibadan.

How did Edo people hype their self into that list. You clearly don't know that Benin has that population because the population is evenly distributed. There's enough land in Benin city to accommodate everyone in Onitsha if Benin starts building high rise building like the ones in Onitsha. Benin City has expanded into 5 local government in Edo south. The only Benin has not entered if I am not wrong is Orhiomwon. So don't say what you don't know.

The population in Benin is very very cosmopolitan. You have urhobos here in large numbers, igbos, Yoruba, Hausas. They're so many here.
Thank you for your submission.

Benin City has sprawled to the famous benin bypass !! I really got surprised the last time I traveled passed that area... .. Benin City is big .. but not densily built/ populated like we have in Lagos or onitsha..
U are right but at least still populated.

The population of the whole Anambra is not up to 6.9million... grin
I seconded my friend. Yes, I agree that the city or town of Onitsha is densely populated but 6.9 million is not true.

Demographia recently released the largest built-up urban area in the world for 2021. Here's how Nigeria's top 15 cities compare with the rest of the world and their estimated population.

Lagos

Position in Nigeria: 1
Position in the World: 20
Estimated Population: 15.5 million

Onitsha

Position in Nigeria: 2
Position in the World: 64
Estimated Population: 6.9 million

Kano

Position in Nigeria: 3
Position in the World: 105
Estimated Population: 4.6 million

Note: we could clearly see that both Lagos and Onitsha are more populated than Kano according to international estimates.

Ibadan

Position in Nigeria: 4
Position in the World: 141
Estimated Population: 3.7 million

Abuja

Position in Nigeria: 5
Position in the World: 152
Estimated Population: 3.5 million

Benin City

Position in Nigeria: 6
Position in the World: 287
Estimated Population: 1.9 million

Port Harcourt

Position in Nigeria: 7
Position in the World: 324
Estimated Population: 1.7 million

Kaduna

Position in Nigeria: 8
Position in the World: 331
Estimated Population: 1.6 million

Benin City and Port Harcourt are more populated than Kaduna City. It seems the North inflates its population figures.

Enugu

Position in Nigeria: 9
Position in the World: 423
Estimated Population: 1.3 million

Ilorin

Position in Nigeria: 10
Position in the World: 434
Estimated Population: 1.2 million

Aba

Position in Nigeria: 11
Position in the World: 450
Estimated Population: 1.2 million

At position 450, Aba is one of the most built-up urban cities in the world. The city is more built-up than the capital of Czech Republic Prague (464), Seville in Spain (487) and the capital of Serbia, Belgrade (491).

Warri

Position in Nigeria: 12
Position in the World: 500
Estimated Population: 1.1 million

Nsukka

Position in Nigeria: 13
Position in the World: 536

Nsukka is a village in Enugu and home to the Univeristy of Nigeria, Nsukka (UNN).

Maidugari

Position in Nigeria: 14
Position in the World: 594
Estimated Population: 879k

Despite being war-torn, Maiduguri is one of the most built-up urban in Nigeria. Impressive!!!

Jos

Position in Nigeria: 15
Position in the World: 602
Estimated Population: 867

Next time you want to insult your country, just know that Lagos ad Onitsha are more built-up than these heavy-weight global cities;

1. Dubai
2. Madrid
3. Singapore
4. Accra
5. Milan
6. Barcelona
7. Cape Town
8. Kuwait City (capital of Kuwait)
9. Detroit
10. Athens
11. Rome
12. Manchester City

Are you saying we should trust Fulani NPC figures?

I am saying that they didn't conduct any census in order to arrive at those figures, so don't trust their figures.
..
NPC has not conducted any recent census too, sheey??
Then, don't trust their figures either..
..
So, which figures do we trust??
None for now, until a census is conducted.
